I am kind of surprised that neither The Campus nor MiddBlog has commented on this story, but I think it’s worth a mention and it beats the heck out of reflecting (some more) on the CORE survey results.
The story concerns a new policy, now in place at Tufts, that “prohibits any sex act in a dorm room while one’s roommate is present.” That’s a quotation from a story in The Tufts Daily, but other college newspapers have weighed in as well. The Harvard Crimson condemned the policy earlier this week, and the Swarthmore Phoenix likewise expressed reservations. The policy has also prompted stories in US News and World Report and The New York Times.
Which leads me to wonder what Middlebury students make of this policy and whether they believe it would be a welcome addition to our campus. Needless to say, comments are welcome.
