Would you hire a remote college student developer or designer?

There are many college students that have a lot of free time on their hands and are good at software development and design. Would you hire remote student developers/designers if they produced quality work? What would you be willing to pay per hour or would you rather pay by project? If you were looking for multiple develops/designers would it be better to hire a small group of developers/designers from the same school (example: a team of two developers and one designer that attends Stanford)? If you want to start a project from scratch or create an MVP would you want to hire an entire remote student team (example: a team that consisted of a project manager, 2-3 developers, and a designer that attends the same school)? Please include what you would be willing to pay for these services, wether in cash or equity or a combination of the two. If you are not willing to hire remote students, what are the reasons? Thanks!

Definitely. The only thing that concerns me is the quality of the work. As long as the remote college student is focused on completing the project within the deadline meeting the requirements, it is fine for me.
