The nature of the college experience today is not a tangent to a thread about a college campus.

So be it.

Alternatively, emphasis on and respect for the military, trades, and manufacturing careers is long, long overdue. College is oversold today and not at all a suitable option for a large number of young people uninterested in its expanding downsides.
Not sure what you're talking about. The majority of students in universities are against hostile hate speech disguised as "free speech." For the few students who feel like they are "oppressed" on campus because the majority of students and faculty members are against their bigoted views, let's just say university are not having any problem sleeping at night about it.
