Earning Housing in College - An interesting concept:)

At Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., campus housing assignments after freshman year are based on merit. Students are given points for high G.P.A.'s, campus involvement and good conduct (like not being written up for under-age drinking) and receive deductions for infractions (like leaving a damaged room). Groups with the highest average scores choose first. At an all-day event in April, students gathered in the gym to learn the housing consequences of their actions and friendships.

This is most definitely an interesting concept. I'm still not sure how much I like it but hey at least it's an attempt to promote good behavior and good grades among Freshmen. What do you guys think about this?
