Wasting no time

From the Lynchburg News & Advance:

It’s been just over a week since the school’s historic vote, and Randolph-Macon Woman’s College already is making plans to add four men’s sports teams next year.

The change is among several already in motion as the college prepares for its first class with men next fall.

R-MWC’s athletic department has decided to add basketball, cross country, soccer and tennis to its programs. Men also will be added to the riding team, which will be coed.

Is the opportunity to walk onto three or four varsity teams worth the poisonous atmosphere?

Incidentally, there's no need for the college to change its name, if this precedent means anything.

Of course the addition of the varsity teams is not worth the rancor of the student body, but the additional monies that sports add to an institution is deemed worthy of the tempory discord.
All in all, lots of collegiate B.S.
