women assert they are the same thing, but I can not see it so. Education in the same classes and as members of a common student body, is quite a different thing from education in a college with separate class rooms and separate campus, but co-ordinate and in organic connection with the other departments of the University, I heartily endorse the establishment of such a college as a part of the University. A separate institution would mean the most formidable rival of the University for legislative support and endowment. Higher education means ultimately graduate work - what possible hope of soon duplicating the equipment of the University for such work? And if it were possible, what useless waste. A co-ordinate college for women would be the greatest step yet taken in Virginia to carry out Jefferson's ideal of democratic education on an efficient, just and yet systematic plan.
