That's the same thing I am here shaking my darn head to. they're condoling what is known to be an abomination (not that I have a personal thing against gays) but shit! They chose that over someone trying to better their life for themselves and children? That's a height of bull. I guess that's better.

That is very nuts. Your so right. A school that does offer it is Georgia State University. Families can stay in the lofts.

I am also so confused on how same sex couples are recognized as being married and single parents aren't even mentioned for housing. Unbelievable!!!

Why make a distinction in favor of "same-sex couples considered married"? Single parents have just as much right as anyone else to college housing. I would say that is discrimination. Something needs to be done about this.

Emory has something on their webpage that says roughly that they do not make allowances for non-traditional students, and the first two years living on campus is mandatory. I had my little heart set on going here for a very long time. Maybe I can find someone to pretend to be my lesbian girlfriend during the housing application process so I can get a place for my kid and me.
