Safety has become a growing concern on college campuses. Students need a thriving institute that will challenge their minds, and not intimidate them into a corner. Schools like the University of California Berkeley is a prime example of a school that offers safe spaces, but isn’t safe at all if your viewpoint is seen as “destructive.”
Where can you find universities where the students and facility are willing to agree to disagree? Where is this multi-faceted realm of learning and understanding? College can be constructed as a very fulfilling institution that can help you expand as a person. But if your safety is challenged then you’ll have one more obstacle besides mountainous debt and a mocking public.
