Students sue school over admission of men

Wells_college Two Students at little Wells College who claim they were promised that the women-only school would not go coeducational during their time there, have sued for breach of contract and deceptive trade practices.  The students, a freshman and a sophomore, have asked a state court in Cayuga County, New York, to prohibit the school from bringing in men until 2008, after present students have graduated.

A lawyer for the students says that the Auburn school deliberately misled the students, because plans for admitting men were being made even while the school was assuring prospective students that it would remain a women’s college.  It is alleged that those giving tours to prospective students were instructed to answer "no" if asked whether men were going to be admitted.
