Villager Life

No this isn't the college experience for most people.

Students aren't all perfect. They're young and dumb and occasionally irresponsible the way that people that age often are, but most students I interacted with didn't have the luxury of treating college as a perpetual party. When I taught at a still somewhat affordable (no longer) UC school, it seemed (anecdote, not data) most students had jobs, and when I taught at a small liberal arts institution, most students were aware of just what it was costing them.

Ah, it all make sense.
