You'll find stories prepared by the Post-Gazette's education team dealing with coed residence halls and the latest twist on that idea -- official coed rooms.

You'll also see articles on how much high-tech gear students pack into their dorm rooms today, whether students should buy laptop or desktop computers, what the current college policies on cell phones are, and how some colleges (none in this region, though) are beginning to allow cats and other high maintenance pets into dorms.

There's also a story on what student cooks can and can't keep in their rooms, with a few easy microwave recipes thrown in.

It's just a snapshot of some of the main facets of campus life -- but we hope it's a revealing and entertaining one.
