Smoking shisha in a modern apartment with wall to wall carpeting, yeah the coals fall off all the time and that's a pretty bad idea.

And some students, especially if they're failing, may just take off with no intention of returning again leaving damage.

It's not fair to charge more but I can see why they'd charge a higher deposit to be honest and someone driving a mustang can afford it.


Wouldn't that be an issue for rental laws and the lease. If a student can bring a good referral from a previous landlord, then there would be no need for a high security deposit. However, I would say that a security deposit that covers damages and also a lease agreement that respects local fire codes with the option of ending the lease if the lease agreement is violated is the norm for most states.


If they're coming from another country and are college students who've probably lived with their parents up until then it's unlikely they would have referrals.

No surprise here...

US university loses $5m as Saudi students stay away
By Arab News | 4 August 2016
Source: http://www.arabnews.com/node/964416/saudi-arabia

JEDDAH: The revenues of Idaho University are expected to decline by more than $5 million in the new academic year due to a drop in the number of Saudi scholarship students. This decrease has been attributed to racist attacks suffered by some Saudi students at the university recently.

According to the Associated Press, the level of registration at the university is expected to decline by as much as seven percent next semester, in comparison to last semester. The annual report of the university which was sent to all employees and the faculty members said that the number of registered students in the upcoming academic year will be less than 9,500 students.

Laura Woodworth-Ney, Idaho State University’s provost and vice president for academic affairs, explained that while the figures reflect the current period alone, the university is getting ready for a further drop in the number of students in the future. She added that the reason for the declining revenues of the university was the declining number of the Saudi students in addition to Kuwaiti students.

This decreased enrollment at the institution comes after Idaho University witnessed a range of racist attacks on Saudi and Kuwaiti students, which prompted the Saudi Embassy in Washington to reconsider the scholarship program with the university. The situation stabilized after the intervention of the mayor of the city and the rector of the university, enabling the parties to reach a suitable solution to the issue, with the university pledging to provide security for Gulf students by providing more police patrols around their lodgings.

In an email to Idaho State faculty and students in mid-April, the university’s president, Arthur C. Vailas, said the homes of about 50 Middle Eastern students had been burglarized over several weeks. “As a result of these crimes, some of our students are seriously considering leaving I.S.U. and Pocatello,” the email said. The burglaries followed reports that 17 vehicles, many belonging to Middle Eastern students, were vandalized last year, Vailas’s email said. Also, DVDs containing hate messages were left on a number of car windshields on campus.

Saudi and Kuwaiti students make up one-tenth of the population at Idaho State.
