Dorm Locking Delayed: Starting next fall, all College dormitories will have an electronic door locking system which will require students to carry “proximity cards” to gain entrance. In today’s Daily D Dean Marty Redman says that he is “100 percent sure” the system will be functional by the fall. The project was initially scheduled for completion in the fall of 2001. “People initially had a very aggressive timetable,” Redman said.

The debate over door locks had gone on for a number of years. That changed, however, last February when Redman announced his plan to lock the dorms. Students received the decision with much dissatisfaction. Alex Wilson explains why the decision was a mistake.
