Probably several factors involved. These are the older students so a higher percentage probably have apartments off campus. CU probably picked the worst dorms and made them the most difficult to get into.
That’s exactly what I was thinking. Besides the frat boys, students don’t really like living in the dorms (at least I didn’t) and most move into on-or-off campus apartments in their second year and beyond. Plus, like someone else said, the school probably limited the space to the worst dorm rooms on campus.
And you MUST have a gun? Even if I didn’t, I’d sooner live in the “shooting gallery.”
There's that and then what kind of dorky kid defines himself by his love of guns? The article is loaded with bias, of course, but the premise of providing gun-carrying dorms is questionable.
