Theo Jones is set to graduate from Sojourner-Douglass College with a nursing degree in November, but instead of celebrating as he nears the finish line, he's left wondering if he should transfer to another school. Sojourner-Douglass was ordered this month by its accrediting body to "show cause" or prove why it should not lose its accreditation, and Jones is one of the many students who are deeply worried about their futures. Jones said he's made inquiries to five potential employers in recent weeks, and all have asked him about the school's accreditation status.

The latest salvo in the campus ideological wars is Antioch College's promulgation of a ridiculously specific code of sexual behavior for students. Why did this Ohio school think it had no alternative but to micromanage co-eds' sex lives by means of a written code?This latest attempt to deal with the fallout of the sexual and political revolutions of the 1960s is another example of how the American campus, once the domain of angry radical protesters, is now the domain of angry radical litigators.

It's the most powerful tool for any writer of narrative fiction. Who in his or her right mind would relinquish it?" In 1964, Updike won the National Book Award for "The Centaur," his third novel.
