Because most college programs since the early 1990s are essentially a chance for kids to party, drink, get stoned, etc..This is typical of college in the last 20 years: the School of Arts and Letters at SOU (I graduated twice from the School of Sciences, which was no-nonsense, by contrast. Bio and geol.) which made up 3/4 of the university was essentially a waste of parental and government money. An excuse to drink, party, fornicate, etc. The SAL kids would show up for class half the time, be intoxicated most of the time to one extent or another, do all sorts of dumb things under the influence, and then “graduate” with a worthless degree..What’s really scary is that many of them became teachers. Then people wonder why the typical teacher today knows less math, science, geography, etc. than high school kids were required to learn in the 1940s-1980s..Or they wonder why so many teachers now prey upon their students. Essentially, they are continuing what they did in college. Can’t have any morals today, right?.What’s funny is that SOU tried not long ago to get rid of its School of Sciences. Why? Because it was money that could be redirected to the party degrees.
