A new wave of coed housing that allows men and women to share rooms is hitting campuses around the country, and Cornell University senior Vince Hartman thinks it's about time.
"A lot of students are over the age of 18 and they have friends that are both guys and girls," Hartman said. "It's just a normal thing friends living together."
This semester, Cornell's Student Assembly, at Hartman's urging, endorsed adding a "gender-neutral housing" option like those already in place at other schools including Oberlin, Swarthmore and Wesleyan and approved earlier in the year at Dartmouth and Carnegie Mellon....
Coed dorms. Coed Rooms. I just want to add my voice to the chorus of brothers and sisters in the Lord who are disgusted by these trends. I worked in a high school in New York that had two bathrooms that were for both men and women. Because there were so few bathrooms in the school, sometimes five or six men and women would be lined up outside the door of one of the facilities. The other facility was in addition quite gross. There was poor ventilation so the odors remained. Further, there was no lock on the door. People would forget to knock and step in to the embarrassment of both parties. I am deeply disturbed by the coed dorm and coed suite trends, and as a college advisor in my high school, I remind parents to check to see on whether these living arrangements are in place in the colleges where they apply.
This coed topic is quite interesting for Germans. German students often live in appartments (usually with only one bathroom) and share these with other male and female students. And nobody thinks about what could happen - and actually nothing happens. Universities or colleges providing rooms or appartments for their students do not separate male and female floors. If you want to live only with male or female students, you have to care for yourself. As a christian, you certainly think different about a 'coed appartment', but nobody would accuse you sharing a student's appartment with men and women.
