They can also be disastrous. I saw a lot of property destruction when I was in college. And, I wasn’t a frat rat. (I wouldn’t have joined a fraternity if my life depended on it!)
College students can be very destructive. Especially in this day and age when most kids have never been away from their parents before moving away to college. They have no idea how to behave without a parent to tell them what to do.
It was not that different in the late 70’s when I was a student…at UC Davis. The immaturity and complete lack of self sufficiency of so many of my cohort in college remains one of my great disappointments in life.
