Visitation/Intimate Relationships Policies
Hoping to get a little more info on how different schools handle these issues. Some members of the Exeter student body are upset at the new visitation policies announced in the handbook (namely, the policy forbidding sleepovers by friends from different dorms - only day student affiliates of a dorm will be allowed to spend the night), as well as the policy that forbids what some are referring to as “dormcest” - “relationships among dormitory residents and/or day student affiliates may not be intimate, sexual, or exclusive in nature.” Members of the student community had long complained that the visitation policies were too heteronormative; it now seems the school has responded with a big swing in the opposite direction, and some kids are upset that the school is forbidding relationships.18 replies
