  • A clarification on the gender-neutral dorms

    Dear Editor,

    In regards to the article "Residential Life announces gender-neutral dorm option," I have two clarifications: 1) There are no "gender-neutral dorms," and 2) I'm not Jedda. First, the first: We already have co-ed housing. Men and women can live together on the same floor. The change for next year is that men and women can now live together in the same room, too. This option (co-ed housing, *not* gender-neutral housing) will be available in all rooms for 3+ people, as well as in a few doubles per floor, except on all-male and all-female floors. It is not restricted to a "gender-neutral dorm." Room draw will proceed as always, expect that there will now be rooms designated co-ed in addition to male and female rooms. Co-ed rooms can be drawn into by men, women, or both.

    And, second, I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you confused me with Jedda on the basis of our orange Crocs.

    Em Harris

    In last week’s article titled “Students participate in selection of dining service,” members of the Dining Task Force were misquoted. The article alleged that certain food service providers have decided against providing for Carleton because of the condition of Burton Dining Hall, but members of the Dining Task Force have denied that this was a factor in companies choosing to work with the College. Members of the Dining Task Force also wish to emphasize their complete impartiality in the process of choosing a food service provider.
