Student government had gone about as far as it could go, President MacCracken told the alumnae.  “The faculty have conferred on the students through their grant of powers full autonomy over the conduct of their affairs, with but two reservations. The first of these is the enforcement of the requirement for the bachelor’s degree, the chief goal of the student life at Vassar, and the second is the right of the faculty to revoke the grant of power at any time if the faculty so deemed best.”     Vassar Alumnae Magazine
