Princeton, NJ – One Princeton alumna’s advice to female students is causing quite a controversy according to New York Daily News.

Susan Patton, who is one of the school’s first female students, told young ladies to “find a husband on campus before you graduate.”

Her words outraged readers when it appeared in The Daily Princetonian last week.

Patton told the New York Daily News she felt like too much focus had been put on encouraging young women to only achieve professionally.

According to the website, Patton says her advice was intended for a very small audience which includes women who are undergraduates at Princeton who actually want to marry and have children.

She says they should not marry “down intellectually.”
