From the Washington Times:
Officials at Catholic University say the early response to their plan to phase out coed dorms has been highly favorable, but not every college student is anxious to see the move become a trend.
“I think if my school even attempted to introduce this measure, there would be riots,” said University of Cincinnati graphic-design major Elishia Candelaresi.
Ms. Candelaresi said that although she supports the option of single-sex dorms, she also cherishes her right to choose.
“I feel that it’s important to give people a choice on how they want to live their life and also to realize that you can’t just protect and shelter people their whole lives because then they never learn how to control themselves,” she said.
Are we still having this 40-year old discussion? First off, I am surprised Catholic U has co-ed dorms. Secondly, what is the attraction of co-ed dorms? Don’t young people like privacy any more?
I seriously doubt that co-ed dorms really affect anyone’s morality. However, there is just something sort of comforting about being able to sit around in your shabby old robe or nightgown when you aren’t in class. What is the attraction of co-ed dorms?
