Does anyone sync their Dropbox to their Ubuntu?

So I am trying to create a lab environment where students would sync their dropbox accounts to the Ubuntu lab machines and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this and have any tips that may be helpful and things that I may have overlooked. One thing I noticed is that because dropbox is mounted locally, it can fill up the Hard Drive very quickly if the students have a lot of files stored in their dropbox. I noticed one thing is if I do selective syncing to fix this issue, but this can only be done user to user so I was wondering if there was a way to force the app to have a maximum storage space for each dropbox account, to prevent someone with 150 GB Dropbox account taking up all of the space from their first sync.
