It would be interesting to know how retention rates might be affected by residence hall "blender mix". E.g., are first year students more or less likely to return if they are all coralled into halls with the other incoming students? Might the positive influence of a few upperclass mentors on their floor inspire them to return? Do upperclass students feel they have earned the privilege of living on a floor without any first year students raising the occasional raucous? In a perfect campus environment with no residence halls having significant accomodation and/or location advantages, I would try to distribute the classes across all residence halls. We are not perfect and I dont know who is.

I hope the administrators are buying lottery tickets. This is a good week if you need to come up with 30M for maintenance.
