Response to wilt the stilt (Original post)

18. That's fairly typical for public colleges and universities.

It's based on a desire to keep freshmen on campus to help them adjust to college life. At most schools, students who live at home in the surrounding area are exempt from the requirement.

This rule was in place even back in the early 1960s, when I first went to college at a state college (later renamed to a university). Dorm residence was a requirement for both freshmen and sophomores, unless you lived with parents nearby (horror!).
