On the other hand, quartz counters, stainless-steel appliances, hot tubs, swimming pools, and rent starting at $779/month are definitely conducive to success

The sprawling complex, with 418 beds, is typical of American Campus Communities’ latest offerings. Apartments have one to four bedrooms, with private baths and the type of accouterments more common in luxury condominiums: quartz kitchen counters, stainless-steel appliances, in-unit washers and dryers, and cable TV and internet. U Centre will also provide amenities that include fitness and recreation centers, a swimming pool with a hot tub, along with a study lounge and “academic success center,” stocked with iMacs and printers. (Monthly rates start at $779 for a bedroom in one of the four-bedroom units.)

482-A Allenhurst Drive, Amherst, NY (formerly off-campus housing for SUNY-Buffalo students).  One of my roommates earned a 4.0 the 1st semester of his freshman year (1968).

And here's where my younger son lived during his freshman year at UW-Stevens Point.  He also earned a 4.0 his first semester.  (2009)

Allenhurst.  Baldwin Hall.  So yesterday.
