Lackadaisy Academia
In reading about college life for American girls in the 1920's, I found it was surprisingly progressive in some ways yet atrociously gendered in others.  Enrollment was much higher than in any previous decade, but courses of study were still largely restricted to nursing, teaching and "euthenics" (home economics).  Like many modern-day pillow forts, much of the demesne of the arts and sciences still had a "no girls" policy.

Reference for the building was St. Louis University's DuBourg Hall.
