College and University Enrollment Remains at High Level. Could Today’s Dorm Room Furniture Be a Reason?

College Enrollment Stays on UpswingAccording to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, college enrollment levels remain at near-record highs. In spite of a difficult economy – or perhaps, in part, because of it – the college and university experience remains popular. In fact, despite the availability of online learning opportunities, it seems that actually going to college is a goal that many still work hard to attain. At University Loft, we’d like to think that the presence of University Loft student furniture in the college dorm room is both a reason to go to college AND a reward once the student gets there!

I’ve said before that when I went to college, my experience there was less than it could have been simply because I did not have University Loft’s solid wood furniture in my residence hall. (Yes, feel free to pity me. I was, indeed, deprived.) I remember visiting my college for orientation and trying to think how I could personalize my dorm room. Without University Loft bunk beds and accessory furnishings in the room, there was only so much I could do. Mostly posters and photos and plants. Too bad I didn’t have the ULoft Tool-less System at my disposal to configure the dorm room furniture to my (and my roommate’s) liking. But of course, again (cue the violins), we didn’t have ULoft furniture on campus. Ahem.

For today’s college students, finding University Loft student furniture in the residence hall and dorm room must be another compelling reason to choose one school over another. Knowing what I know today, it would definitely be a deciding factor in my college choice. After all, any college or university smart enough to outfit their dorm rooms with University Loft furniture probably has a lot of other attributes going for it, as well.
