The Columbia Spectator reports that less than half of residents at the CCNY dorm The Towers are actually CCNY students. Apparently, $775 to $1075 a month is too much to hack. (Now everyone take a deep breath and count to ten...)
Other residents are from different CUNY schools, such as Diane Teske, who was scared of having a "Laguna Beach roommate."
And to tickle Curbed readers' fancy, CCNY Director of Public Relations Ellis Simon has to throw in this little gem: "Now we can appeal to students ... who are looking for the residential experience at a public college and also be able to offer them that experience in a locale that's just minutes from midtown Manhattan." Sigh.
