Animal House at 30

Yes, it's been thirty years since Animal House first hit movie theaters, as noted in a front page article in the current (Sept. 5) Chronicle of Higher Education. An interesting part of the article is the attention given to the end of the "in loco parentis" role for colleges, a role in which college officers stood in something of the role of parents to the students. The article notes that student's rights were first addressed in a landmark case, Dixon v. Alabama in 1961.

What if you wanted to know more? To see the actual case for example? Just go to Lexis-Nexis, one of the databases we provide!
