Talk About Dumb Ideas

Ok, this is dumb for a couple obvious reasons.  But it also would allow the state subsidized college compete with the private hospitality industry.  Unfair, fellas, unfair.

News & Observer:

UNC Charlotte has offered to rent dorm rooms to nearly 1,500 visitors to the 2012 Democratic National Convention, a move that would delay the start of the fall semester by 25 days and cancel the traditional fall break.

[...]It's not clear whether convention organizers will accept the offer. [Chancellor] Dubois said the rooms could cost up to $500 per bed per night.

That's so the university can recover the estimated $3 million in revenue it would lose in housing costs as well as losses in such areas as food services, bookstore purchases and parking costs.
