Survival of the Fittest in College Students (and in College Student Furniture)

Survival of the Fittest in College Furniture with University LoftIf you want to make the grade in college, you’ve got to be in tip-top shape, mentally and physically. You’ve got to want to succeed and you’ve got to do the right things to make it happen. After all, in college – as in life after college – only the fittest survive. So at University Loft Company (where, since 1986, we’ve been among the fittest of the fit in college furniture manufacturing), we salute those colleges named by as “The 20 Fittest Colleges in America.” In particular, we salute our fit and fabulous University Loft student furniture customers, including Washington University in St. Louis, University of Alabama at Huntsville, The Ohio State University, and the University of Connecticut.

These colleges and universities are making the right moves when it comes to student fitness. They are committed to giving their students superior access to exercise and training facilities, fitness programs and better nutrition choices. In other words, these campuses make sure their students have the “right stuff” to succeed. University Loft shares that commitment. Here’s how:

We start with the best ingredients for a solid core. We use Environmentally Farmed Timber that’s been proven stronger than the Northern Red Oak that most furniture makers tout.

We focus on joint strength, too. The joining techniques we use – mortise and tenon, and English Dovetail joints – are the best in the industry.

And we sweat the details on flexibility, too. Our Tool-less System makes it easy to configure your modular ULoft furniture to fit your dorm room space and your lifestyle!

Strong core, superior joints and day-to-day flexibility; sounds like the perfect formula for fitness in student bodies and in student furniture. No wonder University Loft has survived as a leader in university furniture for more than 25 years.
