Texas College Tells Female Students-Pose For Playboy And You'll Face Discipline

That is such a great point-do they discipline the male students who are caught reading it? I respect their religious beliefs but that truly is a double standard if they don't. They can control what happens on their campus but I wonder what would happen if any students posed outside of the school situation on their own, in an issue that had nothing to do with the school. I would think perhaps Playboy is interested the the "shock value" of getting students from such a conservative school.

(Reuters) Baylor University in Waco, Texas, which bills itself as the world's largest Baptist college, has threatened to discipline female students if they pose for Playboy magazine, which is trying to recruit models from the college.

Playboy photographers came to Baylor's hometown seeking models for a photo spread on women of the Big 12 college athletic conference, of which the college is a member.

Baylor Vice President for Student Life Samuel W. Oliver sent an e-mail to women students this week warning that any who "associate" with Playboy would be subject to the university's disciplinary processes.

"Playboy is clearly antithetical to Baylor's mission and associating with the magazine would be a violation of the code of conduct," Oliver wrote in the e-mail. University officials said punishment could include suspension.

Baylor, known for its conservative outlook, did not allow dancing on campus until 10 years ago.

A spokesman for Playboy, known for its nude centerfold pictures, declined to comment on the e-mail.

The threatened punishment was met with a yawn by students on campus.

One woman, who professed no desire to pose for Playboy, said Baylor officials had "more important things to worry about" and wondered if male students would face similar punishment if they were seen reading an issue of Playboy featuring Baylor women.

They suspended a fraternity for a year, for posing(clothed) in an issue about college fraternities back in 02.

Probably something identifying the university. The students probably violated some school regulation by using a logo or other identification of the university.
