Smart idea.
"I'll take Hawaii for $15,000 Alex..."

2 Princeton grads just bought out hotels in Hawaii and Arkansas and are betting on college students paying them $15,000 to study in a 'bubble'

SNIP:
  • Two Princeton grads have come up with an idea to "unbundle" the college experience from physical colleges: having students take their remote classes from hotels in Arkansas and Hawaii.
  • It's called The U Experience, and it's buying out two hotels this fall to house students from different schools in a "bubble."
  • Cofounders Adam Bragg and Lane Russell told Business Insider that they left their jobs to work on The U Experience full-time.
  • The cost is basically what room and board would cost on an actual campus, they said, with a $12,000 base rate in Arkansas and $15,000 in Hawaii.

As a student, I would love staying in Hawaii with a bunch of other college students from around the country, like an extended spring break.  As a parent, I think I would keep the $15,000 and keep them at home instead of doing that.

I sure if a girl is half way decent looking she can live in Arkansas staying at the Bill Clinton Memorial Library and Cat House for under $12,000.
