Article "Trustees Alter WC Dining Hall Policy"

Description

According to this University of Richmond Collegian article, the Board of Trustees has passed a Westhampton Senate proposal allowing men to eat at the court dining hall during dinner hours. The court dining hall was the all-female dining hall intended for Westhampton College students. The proposal, explained by Amanda Debusk, resulted partly from a student survey which found 237 students wanted a change and only 38 preferred the present condition. Additionally, the Senate report states that the concept of “separate dining facilities” as stated in the Coordinate Education Report has not been realized because the court dining hall, designated for women, is available on a limited basis only. This has resulted in the loss of a “sense of college” by some students. Many students also believe Richmond College is “in violation of the present system as interpreted by University officials,” since the amendment states that the enforcement of this rule at only one college is “not generally accepted by Westhampton students.”
