Peace University admits 1st class with men


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Men are now among the new students moving into the formerly all-female Peace College in Raleigh, which also has a new name: William Peace University.

WRAL-TV reported ( that men comprise about a third of the class that moved in Saturday and Sunday. It's the first class to be admitted since the all-women's Peace College was renamed and men were allowed to register as full-time students.

The sudden decision last summer to end the school's 155-year-old focus on educating women brought opposition from alumnae. Peace University President Debra Townsley says the university is moving past that controversy.
