After more than a generation of transforming nearly every male-only institution in America, now a formerly female-only institution finds that its survival depends on going coed, and the women are up in arms. In my time, I've seen the military and naval academies go coed. I've seen warships forced to accommodate females. I've seen all-male clubs forced to accept females and the list could go on for pages.
Now, the shoe is on the other foot and some students believe that it would be better to see the school close than to see it go coed. Of course, this is not a new trend. Those who have chosen to break down barriers have often selectively chosen which barriers to attack, leaving their own domains intact.
All I can say is that it's a brave new world, ladies. Welcome aboard!
