University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill is moving toward the front of the pack in this year’s race to the bottom. Last year, the student newspaper, the Daily Tar Heel, revealed that students were using Craigslist to arrange casual quickies in the main library. The school has made a serious response to such inappropriate activity: It is installing free condom dispensers at ten locations around campus, just in case amorous couples can’t make it back to the dorm room in time and have to duck into the nearest empty classroom. None of the dispensers are located in the library, but there’s one right next door in the student-union building. That should be close enough should any sudden urges arise while cruising the bookshelves.
