Good News! Drinking, Hooking Up, Still Thriving at Catholic U.

Glenn Ricketts

At least, that's the tone of this article that's in today's IHE. Although the author of the piece, Elizabeth Murphy, notes that opinion on CUA's campus is split 50/50 on the issue, she apparently saw fit to interview only those who felt that "if they're gonna do it, they're gonna do it," as she quotes from a couple of new freshmen.

It might have been worth noting that the change, to be gradually phased in over the next four years, is halfway into the Autumn semester of the first year, so firm conclusions might not yet be justified. Murphy probably could also have found a freshman somewhere on campus who liked the arrangement and was willing to say so. It's hard to come away with the impression though, that she made much of an effort in that direction.
