smart & eclectic?

probably all over the internet by now, Homeless NYU student documents life on Livejournal, gets a dorm room [site, homeless_at_nyu]

Commenting on the student who lived for eight months in the library, this quote from the NYU spokesperson is entertaining, if only for the definition of NYU student intelligence and eccentricity:
"N.Y.U. doesn't attract just smart students, it attracts smart, eclectic students," said Mr. Beckman, the university spokesman. "We had a film student who wanted to film a couple performing a live sex act in front of a class. We had students who set up a swimming pool in their dorm room. Now we have this fellow."

I wonder how uncommon this is (the homelessness, not the live sex in class). By the end of the week, will every campus newspaper have a letter to the editor from the local library sleeper?
