My son recently had his (wet) hoodie sweatshirts stolen from the laundry room at college. The jeans weren't taken, just the sweatshirts. The couple of people I've told say this is a fairly normal occurrence. I don't think this will convince him to stay in the room while he's doing laundry, and I took this opportunity to stress the importance of LOCKING his room, which they still may not be doing regularly. Is theft really that normal? I don't know that it matters, but this is a private school that's quite expensive.
