Not Separate Just Equal

George Washington University is going the extra mile to make its students comfortable. “A year-long push to add a dramatically progressive option to student living came to a close Thursday, as the University announced it will offer gender-neutral housing next year,” Emily Cirillo reported in The GW Hatchet. “The ruling, which will allow students of the opposite sex to live together, will take effect in all but three of the University’s residence halls next year.”

“An administration-led review committee reached the decision after months of analysis and debate over whether the option was a smart move. Students wishing to live with a member of the opposite sex must directly request the option and select a specific roommate to live with.”

The housing may be gender neutral but students rarely are.
