Colgate University: Women Dominate This Liberal Arts College
Colgate University just missed out on making our "Top 10 Liberal Arts Universities for College ROI" list, but they do deserve recognition for being a school with a notably higher ROI for female graduates than for male. Though the population is fairly even, with 53%/47% male/female attendee split, women go on to earn almost twice of what men make. The most common jobs reported by Colgate alumni include PR Directors and advertising professionals. These jobs earn healthy paychecks and are not as male-dominated as other high-paying fields, like engineering.
