Why college is like prison and how to escape
British slang for college is “prison.” That’s one definition, anyway, and those Brits are bloody right. College can feel like prison with highway robbery tuition rates, campus confinement your first year and cafeteria food worse than inmates at Folsom State Prison get. You might as well strap on a house arrest ankle bracelet, hang out in your dorm room and listen to Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.” That’s what traditional college feels like — prison.
But what if you could escape your collegiate incarceration, especially the first couple of years? What if you could start a prison break among those attending or sentenced to attend a traditional university?
