Unanticipated Impact of Gender Imbalanced Campus

For my book research, I visited the University of Maine at Farmington to take a look at what happens to campuses that become more than two thirds female. I still remember the dorm tour when I popped into a room where three guys were snacking and playing video games.

What's it like for guys here? I asked. One student looked at me, smiled, and answered: sweeeet.

Well, life got sweeter for him, as some women marched to win the right to go topless (isn't it still chilly there?). From Inside Higher Ed.
