Back when our moms were in college, dorms were single sex and gentleman callers had to wait in the “beau room,” under a house mother’s watchful eye, till their dates were ready. Now, an increasing number of colleges – Penn State, Wesleyan, Brown, UC Riverside and Oberlin – are offering not just coed floors but coed rooms. It’s not about hanky panky, students say, although when that happens, it’s called “roomcest.” Idea is, the coed option allows best friends to room together even if they’re different sexes.
