My College is no longer. :-( [05 May 2014|01:06pm]

The BoT voted for Chatham to go co-ed beginning fall of 2015.

I wrote postcards. I kept up with an online alumnae group. But it wasn't enough. Here's something else I felt:

First, the Chatham College for Women no longer exists.
Second, a blind eye has been turned with MAJOR MISAPPROPRIATION OF FUNDS.
Three, there will be NOTHING that differentiates Chatham from any other of the colleges/universities in the Pittsburgh area.
Four, young women will not have the opportunities to be heard and powerful and move forward as they move up in their years.

 Hey lovely Chatham peoples!

I'm taking Junior Seminar at the moment, in preparation for tutorial next semester, and I have an assignment to talk to an alum about their tutorial experience, just to get a feel for what it's all like.  If you happen to have done a tutorial at Chatham and have a moment to spare, it'd be great if you could answer these questions:

1) When did you graduate from Chatham?
2) What did you major in?
3) What was your tutorial topic?
4) What was your favorite part of the tutorial process?
5) What was your least favorite part of the process?
6) Was your tutorial useful in any way after graduation?
7) Where do you keep your tutorial?

administration taking dorm space away from undergrads to give to grads [27 Jul 2010|10:34am]


"there was en e-mail sent out recently that told the students that next year they will be putting male and female grad-students on the top floor of woodland. integrating older males into an supposed all female undergraduate space. i for one am not happy that they are not only kicking out people that had already signed up to live there, but are now taking away the comfort of a safe space for women. the grad students already have 5 buildings on 5th ave, and are now also being put in the apartments of fickes and the top floor/s of woodland."

Thought I'd spread the word--Amazon is running a deal where any student can sign up for Amazon Prime (free two-day shipping) fora  year for free with a valid .edu e-mail address.

Okay, so I have a question.
Does anyone have any clue who the contact person is for Chatham College Progressives?  I read that it is still an active student organization, but for the life of me I haven't been able to find anything out about them.

Graduate Student Incoming From Seattle [26 Jan 2009|04:25pm]

Hello, my name is Vincent and today I was accepted into Chatham's MFA: Creative Writing program. It was actually my no. 1 choice due to the unique curriculum and I just wanted to get an idea of what the university and Shadyside is like or even some insight from anyone in the fine art department. I guess I'm also curious, too, about the amount of male graduate students. I actually didn't even realize the only men allowed in were graduates.

What can anyone tell me about the Linzer Apartments? Are they quiet, or are they "partyish" the way the Chatham Apartments are? For the life of me, I can't find anyone on campus that actually lives there.

Is anyone on here talented with a needle and thread (or a sewing machine) and want to make some extra money by hemming my pants?

housing [28 Jul 2008|10:00pm]

So I've decided that I want to live on campus. Now I have to fill out a form rating which place I want to live in. My question is, what's the difference? I'm 28 yrs old, and since I've both had roommates and lived on my own, I would love to have a single room and have no problem paying the extra fee. Is there a dorm that I would have a better chance of getting a single? Or a dorm that's better than others due to space/location/etc? I feel so clueless about all this, since I've spent the past 10 years at community college. Ugh, I also feel like I'm going to be the "creepy older woman" on campus, except that I look like I'm 17 years old.

Thanks for any insight, and I'm sure I'll see you all in a couple of weeks.

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

newbie question [17 May 2008|09:23pm]

I'll be transferring to Chatham in the fall (after 10 years off and on at CCAC, woo!!!) and was wondering when the bookstore starts selling fall semester books and what's the deal? I usually go to the CCAC bookstore, write down the ISBN number and then look on half.com. Is Chatham cool about people doing that, or do they really press people to buy the books at the store?

Does anyone know anything about the Chatham Apts? I think they're called Chung and Pelletreu. Has anyone been in them? Are they nice?

I was just reading the Post-Gazette online today, and came across this. The Chatham community is definitely worse off for Dr. Adam's death... he was one of my favorite professors.

Prospective Transfer [09 Mar 2008|07:55pm]

[ mood | hyper ]


I was really interested in transferring to Chatham in the Fall of 2008. My biggest complaint with the school I'm at now is how far away everything is. Having a car is practically mandatory unless you want to ask for rides the entire year. So, I was curious what the surrounding area of Pittsburgh is like? How often do you go out? What is there to do in the city?

Anything else you have to say about the school would be awesome!

scholarship day [08 Feb 2008|05:59pm]

Hey everyone!
I'm going to be at the scholarship day next weekend and I wondered if anyone had advice they could give me, like as far as what to expect for the essay question. It's kind of intimidating to not know what they'll have us write about until that morning.
Also, if anyone wanted to hang out while I'm up there, let me know. It would be cool to get to know some people before I actually transfer there this fall. Transfer! I can't wait. I've been going to community college off and on for 10 years now and I'm looking forward to the fall, when I can just go to school full time and not worry about working or anything.
Have a happy weekend!

Any reviews?

My mom just called to tell me that a girl on Wheel of Fortune right now is in a grad program at Chatham. Her name is Renee, I wonder if she ended up winning?
