Chicago Tribune April 6, 2008 sec. 1 p. 6:
Over the last few decades, single gender dorms have become hard to find on a college campus. Many moved to coed floors, coed suites, and coed bathrooms. Now a number of schools have instituted coed rooms. Approximately 30 campuses now have rooms that are officially shared by male and female roommates. Schools who have made the switch say that gender-blind dorm rooms are more inclusive and acknowledge modern realities. Most of the schools discourage romantically involved students from rooming together, but maintain that such choices are up to the students. Critics say coed rooms are one more indicator of the eroding morals on the college campus.
So do I.
“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” -Abraham Lincoln
