Its 500-acre (200 ha) campus was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and houses the Davis Museum and a Botanic Garden. Admissions is exclusively restricted to women, though it adopted a more transgender inclusive admissions policy in 2015. Notable alumnae and affiliates include two U.S. Secretaries of State; the first female nominee for President of the United States from a major party; noted academics, journalists, writers, politicians, diplomats, activists, businesspeople, filmmakers, and entertainers; and recipients of Emmy, Tony, Academy, and Peabody Awards, the Nobel Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize.
