#2 Single sex dormitories were the norm here when I was a young guy. I'm actually sympathetic to the idea. Seems there was more education and less humping back in those days.

If I had a daughter about to college I wouldn't be happy about moving her in with a bunch of horny guys.

Where I take issue is having the government "one way or another supervise the situation."

#3 Ditto Fred.

Long ago when I was in a dormitory there were also no TVs allowed other than in the Student Union or Greek Houses. Education was much more important than anything (except maybe B-Ball).
