Future of dorm life: Discuss and ask questions Thursday at 1 p.m.
Colleges are constantly making tweaks and major changes to campus housing -- adding more apartment-style halls, creating learning communities, inviting faculty members to live amongst undergraduates, expanding the roles of RA's, easing visitation rules and pushing for the use of "residence hall" instead of "dorm."
Last week George Washington University announced it would soon offer gender neutral housing to all students -- including incoming freshmen -- in nearly all of its halls. That means men can now live with women in the same dorm room. Many other campuses across the country have added similar programs or are debating doing so.
What's the future of campus housing? What does gender neutral housing look like at other college campuses? Why do students want (or not want) the option to live with someone of the opposite sex?
Thursday at 1 p.m. we will discuss all of those questions and more during Campus Overload Live.
My guest this week is Michael R. Komo, a GWU senior political science major and president of the campus Allied in Pride group. Komo has been pushing for gender neutral housing at GWU for several years and has done extensive research on the topic.
Both of us will be online starting at 1 p.m. to answer all of your questions about gender neutral housing, campus living trends and anything else college-related.
