George Washington Housing Applications Are Up

School receives 6 percent more applications from returning students.


George Washington University is already facing an onslaught of housing applications, with 300 more applications from nonfreshman than last year, the Hatchet reports. School officials attribute the 6 percent increase (to 4,833 applications) to the bad economy, a larger senior class, a new dorm, and lower rooming costs (in some cases, the price tag will decrease by $2,000). The figures so far do not include freshman applications.
