Guy problems on campus

I appreciated the detailed treatment given by Elise Ureneck’s “Men in Question” cover story in the July 1 issue to the current crisis in manhood.

Having recently graduated college, I noticed many of the same problems described in the article during my four years on campus. While my female circle of friends seemed focused and dedicated when it came to exploring career opportunities and looking for a future husband, the “guys” we encountered (most of them Catholic) seemed less interested and, as the article puts it, “distracted” by things like video games and sports.

I think that there should be more research done on this phenomenon, especially on how it’s affecting young families. It’s important that we know the generation we are called to evangelize!
