Colleges are “rushing to build high-tech classrooms and plush dormitories for a new breed of students,” the pampered children of the “Baby on Board” generation.
Kimberly Swygert calls it “Coddling the Millenials.”
I thought we were sending kids to college these days so that they could broaden their horizons, and learn something about the outside world, and be in a multicultural environment where they learn how other people think and act and live. But now colleges are spending like crazy to give every incoming freshman a upper-middle-class 90210 environment? What the heck is that?
Kimberly suspects “colleges with mystery meat in the dining hall and plenty of scunge in the hall bathrooms” are more likely to graduate students in four years or less.
