I've read quite frequently that the SJW crap is a requirement nowadays at most colleges regardless of degree. I mean, it's been what, 20'ish years since we were in school? Things supposedly changed a LOT.I get the whole "indoctrination" idea... but I honestly feel that's only a thing in liberal arts circles. In engineering classes, we didn't discuss politics, religion, or any other hot-button issues of the sort. The general idea pushed upon us is that math and the laws of nature don't give a shit about people problems.
In college, the people running for student body president and this council and that organization were ALL sociology, foreign language, and political science majors. Never did a single engineering student ever run for those positions. You know why? We were way too damn busy. No engineers had enough free time to take up a cause, march, protest, run for student government, or any of that other hippie-dippy baloney. Math has no causes!
No, that shit was reserved for people taking bullshit majors who weren't going to add to society in the end anyway. So, IMO, it really depends on what you're going to school for whether or not you're going to get the full brainwash treatment. You need college for STEM degrees.
My college is hard on indoctrinating it’s students but there’s also a small contingent of us republicans who hold out against protests. Funny two people I know were failed by professors just because they viewed things a little different than their own and one of them is now joining the marines for OCS because the professor torpedoed his chance at doctorate school for psychologyConsidering that they've turned them into indoctrination centers, I'm really surprised that they haven't made it more affordable as opposed to less. You'd think that they'd want as many malleable minds in there as possible. I guess that's what the push for "free" college is all about.
That kind of thing is another reason it's smart to go to school in an environment you are friendly with (i.e. conservative or Christian). While it's wonderful to "expand your horizons," having some jackass professor fail you because you don't share their world view is not acceptable, ever. It's no wonder the value of a college education has diminished rapidly over the past few decades. People who have any self/environmental awareness at all know that it's mostly just BS (pardon the pun), and by no means dictates a person's actual capabilities in an actual career environment.

I know just what you need..Sheeeeeiiiit, no. I've got a LEGO backlog I won't make any headway on. Probably just wait for Marauder to tease another WWII figure. It doesn't help that I long ago forgot what fun even is.
