Fall is in full force at Sage College, but the leaves are not the only thing that may be changing on campus.

According to President Christopher Ames, the school is considering going co-ed.

"I think all women's colleges have asked themselves at different stages if they should move to being co-ed," said Ames.

The school has been a historic women's college for more than a century. It was created in 1916, in a time where education was not available for women and neither was the right to vote.

"It's always been dedicated to creating opportunities for women because society was limiting them," said Ames.

Throughout the years, a change in the times made the school break tradition. For instance, by law, the administration is required to allow males to enroll in their graduate classes.

"I don't think it would make a really big difference since the males here are already welcomed," said Corey Cimijotti, a fellow male student. 

The school said the switch to co-ed could help unify both campuses, while Ames believes it would be a smart move financially.

"We want to be able to offer the best education for our students for years to come," said Ames.

Despite the positive reinforcement from the school's administration, some students worry about the loss of women's empowerment.

"We all share similar backgrounds and stories; I don't know if we can do that with the guys," said Jahsel Ashby, a junior. 

Ashby credited the school's all-women history as her influence to attend. 

While students like Ashby are against the switch, other students have said men should be included in the discussion.

"Introducing men to what we study is the perfect opportunity to let them see what women's issues is all about. Yes, we're an all-women's school and there's a lot of feminism, but feminism is for everyone," said Jasmine Rojas, a junior.

Ames remained assured his students and alumni will embrace the changes.

"As we discuss the implications that this has for the institution and how it preserves the values they really care about, they will be fully supportive," said Ames.

The school said the change, which is part of a program to increase enrollment, could happen by fall 2020. Still, the school is taking time to talk to students and alumni, assessing their opinions before they make an official decision.
