New England is full of expensive liberal arts schools. Most of them are populated by trust fund kids who treat college as a pilgrimage to ski and smoke pot while majoring in English Literature or Philosophy.
Liberal Arts schools tend to attract baby-boomer hippie professors who’ve settled into their safe space and are given carte blanche to mask their political leanings as curriculum.
Nothing is more conformist than drinking a good ole American beer like Budweiser. Instead, many of these kids opt to spend $10 on a six-pack of IPA or heady brown ale.
Unless you’re one of these aforementioned trust fund kids these universities can leave the average student with a mountain of debt. Good luck trying to capitalize on the political science degree when you’re chest-high in crippling student loans.
Marijuana is a staple of every liberal arts college. It’s easy to find and prevalent even among faculty.
Walk around a New England college campus and you will see people wearing “Boston Strong” shirts and tattered Red Sox hats.
