In the words of one of its officers, Emma Willard epitomizes “Hollywood’s idea of a traditional European campus.” The spectacular Tudor and Gothic campus has been the setting for studio movies, the venue for a fictional contemporary private secondary school and for Oxford at the turn of the last century. In reality, recent use of the campus presents a very different picture. Despite a curricular emphasis on fitness and engagement with nature, students rarely ventured out in bad weather. Based upon a culture of “coat-phobia,” they avoided the cold New York winter by navigating the campus in flip flops through a ...[more]
