Abigail E. Adams Dyke to Dyke: Ritual Reproduction at AU.S. Men's Military College

SEMI is one of two remaining state-supported men’s colleges in the United States, both of which are Southern ‘military’ schools, although not official U.S. armed service academies (which have been coeducational since 1976). SEMI and its state’s government were ordered by U.S. federal courts to either admit women, cut state funding, or create a SEMI-style program elsewhere in the state. The U.S. Supreme Court refused in May to consider SEMI’s appeal, and SEMI’s governing board this Fall will announce the plan that complies with federal courts – but keeps women from enrolling (Associated Press, 8 August 1993).
