It's not even as if college students can go to campus and party these days.
Colleges and universities are facing a serious threat from sky rocketing tuition, watered-down degree value, and a sense of radicalism that is making campuses across the country unattractive to many students.
And they have no one to blame but themselves.
The Federalist's Spencer Brown has a rundown of classes that rival the old stereotype of basket weaving or drum circles. But these classes are real.
To make matters worse, it's not that many of the traditional courses are much better for students.
A recent report from the Center for American Progress says about half of college students take essentially high school classes when they get to campus.
That only adds to the cost of a college education. A cost that a growing number of young people are choosing to skip out on.
