firstname.lastname@example.org FREDERICK, Md. - Alaska native Craig Callender grew up in a state where the male to female ratio is 8:1. That table turned when he moved to Hood College in Frederick. Callender is among 43 men in a residential student population of 455. Hood began allowing men to live on the campus this fall for the first time in the 110-year history of the private college. The decision was expected to bolster revenue in the face of dwindling enrollments - the vast majority of female undergraduates today attend coed schools - and to add more diversity to the classroom and residential experience.
