Quote of the Day

“It’s not just that people are arriving on big, anonymous campuses, but the homes these kids are coming out of are more isolated. One of the problems in American society today is that people don’t eat together anymore. It’s the whole bowling alone thing, and co-ops are one of the few places where people can really come together.”
–Jim Jones, former executive director of the North American Students of Cooperation , and a historian of trends in communal living, discussing the rise on co-op, or communal living, on campuses, in an article in the NY Times.
