Post above says: Freshman year you live on single-sex floors, but every year after that, almost all floors and bathrooms are co-ed (unless you petition your residential college's housing committee to live on a single-sex floor).
Question: What is the perceived wisdom of coed bathrooms? Society evidently thinks this is not a good idea, as you see this nowhere else, yet it is thought to be wise for folks who should spend most of their time studying (that's why you are there!), and who happen to be in a very hormone heavy part of their life cycle(19-22)?? The wisdom of this escapes me.
I can see why the guys would dig it for the most part, but doesn't it creep the ladies out? Do guys and gals literlly shower a shower stall apart? This seems to make no sense, but does create many apparent opportunities for mischief or worse. Didn't have these in "the day" so would be interested in hearing from students who have experienced coed bathrooms(especially interested in hearing from lady students). Thanks.
