ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (AP): An all-women's Catholic college in western Indiana has called off a planned meeting with graduates and the parents of current students as some are opposing the decision to enroll its first male undergraduates on campus this fall.
St. Mary-of-the-Woods College officials decided to allow only current students at Thursday evening's meeting about the decision announced Tuesday.
Kelsey Hollis of Terre Haute says that many of her fellow students disagree with the decision and believe it is unfair to take away the all-women's college experience they were promised.
School President Dottie King says the change is needed because studies have found fewer than 2 percent of college-age women will consider attending a single-gender institution.
King says the college will have meetings soon with graduates and parents.
