WILL SINGLE-SEX DORMS HELP CATHOLIC STUDENTS LEAD HEALTHIER LIVES?

Today more than 90 per cent of college housing is co-ed.

No more at the Catholic University in Washington, D.C.   The president, John Garvey, has just announced that coed dorms and rooms at Catholic U. will be phased out this fall, to be replacedby male and female separate student quarters. President Garvey says virtue and intellect are connected so  helping students make good ethical decisions and permits them to better learn — and stay safe, healthy and out of trouble.

President Garvey also cited several recent studies showing that students who live in coed dorms drink more heavily and have more sexual partners.

Are coed dorms a breeding ground for drunks and sexual promiscuity?

Will single-sex dorms help Catholic students leader healthier lives?
