This is a step backward that:
- Further limits interaction among the sexes
- Indirectly manages university risk re: substance use/abuse
- Undercuts South Bend property owners/landlords and general town-gown goodwill
It does little for student independence and decision-mkaing, engagement with the local community or generally students encountering realities beyond the bubble.
I'd be curious to see how many of the other, oh...top 100 universities...impose such byzantine rules.
