First, it should be stated that the vast majority of degrees are completely worthless and are going to be the number one cause of poverty for generations going forward.
Second, if you must attend college, choose a degree that is worthwhile and will make your lifetime income one you can live amply off of.
Third, ideally, attend college online so you can not only save fees, greenhouse gases, tuition, and rent, but the horrific time that is spent wasted commuting to a physical campus.
Finally, if you're going to attend a physical college AND major in a worthless field AND have a career in "academia" preparing for psycho-shit like this to happen as you are working among insane people who are manically-ideologically driven.
Finally consider purchasing the books below so you don't end up like the generations of worthless and marginally employed professors and liberal arts majors.
