Columnist: Mix Genders, Mix Messages

However, this is with the state’s assistance. While I am sure our student body is doing everything possible to be “safe,” accidents do happen, and the state is currently working to prevent unwanted pregnancies and financially supporting single mothers.

Question: Is the University of Idaho sending mixed messages with its intention to offer mixed-gender housing?
