The Sox vs. Yanks of women-only colleges

Newsweek cites Wellesley vs. Smith as one of the top 12 college rivalries. The article points out Smith’s efforts to target low-income students, though says Wellesley is no slouch on that front either. Smith also is said to have a good nightlife off campus: Café-crawling Smith students say of their school, “The coffee is strong and so are its women.” Both schools are emphasizing their science and engineering offerings as well.
