For the sake of promoting “diversity,” New York University housing policies will no longer allow incoming freshman to choose a roommate based on religious compatibility, raising concern and anxiety among Sabbath observant students. Roommate assignments, said NYU, will be primarily based “on geographic diversity" rather than personal choice. Upperclassman, however, may choose to have roommates of the opposite sex, even if they share a religion.
