Dean of Religious Life of SC, Jennifer L. Walters, said: "We aim to…provide support and guidance to students as they wrestle with questions of meaning, faith and purpose. Carol T. Christ is SC President. Prominent graduates include Chef Julia Child, feminist Gloria Steinem and author Sylvia Plath." SC’s website states: At Smith, the “old boys’ network” becomes an “ageless women’s network.”…Of course, the world is coeducational. But Smith women enter it more confidently than women graduates of coed schools."
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged other US universities and colleges, both public and private, to respond to the spiritual needs of diverse student body and provide dedicated Hindu prayer/meditation room for rituals, quiet reflection, festivals and spiritual exercise, which would help in their personal growth.
