My colleague, Heidi Schlumpf, wrote this past week about John Garvey, Catholic University's new president, and his decision to return the campus to single sex dormitories.

Laura Sessions Stepp disagrees.
Stepp is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, formerly with The Washington Post, who specializes in the coverage of young people. She has written two books: "Unhooked: How Young Women Pursue Sex, Delay Love and Lose at Both," and "Our Last Best Shot: Guiding Our Children Through Early Adolescence."
