look up any word, like swag:
 
1.
A magical place where it is rumored that learning takes place, although to those who enter it is often described differently afterward, as a beatiful land in which beer flows in amber currents next to a golden pasture, where virgins lie naked with gentle smiles upon their calm, inviting faces; but more precisely, a Shangri-La rite of passage into adulthood which involves rampant consumption of alcoholic beverages, flagrant and promiscuous sexual behavior, and a general and fundamental disregard for any form of responsibility by its habitants.
Thank you sir, may I have another?

An overwhelming excuse to go out, get drunk, get laid, and soak up financial aid while everyone thinks that one day you may be a great leader of the world

A place you go to to complete your government brainwashing.
And you pay for it too.

A huge waste of money. You'll spend assloads to get a worthless degree. Once you get out you will spend every single second of your day being harassed by the AES nazis while you're struggling to find a job. Don't laugh too hard at the guy at McDonald's flipping hamburgers you'll be there too once you graduate and more than likely he'll be your manager.

You also get the joy of listening to a bunch of dumbass ex-hippy professors try to fill your head with Communism and pointless dogma that's as worthless as tits on a bull in the real world.

Spending your student loan on lottery tickets is a more realistic goal than hoping to land a decent job with your degree.
Jim went to college and was a pompous ass thinking he'd get a great job out of it. Now he mows lawns.

Where your family tells people you're going when you're really going to prison.
"Well, he's going to college for 18 months."
~or~
"Maryville? I went to college there for 6-10..."

n; (1) A place for students to gather to study their respective academia, meet new people, and engage in learning and intelligent conversation.

(2) A convenient way for parents to burn 40 grand+ so their children can drink (or smoke, or both), play frisbee, and major in a default subject so they can afford to do the previously mentioned more frequently.
(1) Douglas majored in guitar and music, which really shows because he is a phenominal player now. He also seems to be reading a lot and engaging in intellectual discussion.

(2) (Parent, at home): "Yes, we always knew Blake had a knack for business management systems, and we're glad he's following his dreams."
(Blake, at college): "Dude whatever you gotta drink that shit, thats like the second time you and Terry tried to restack the cups and not drink. Shah, seriously dude drink up."

1. High school redirected in a very expensive facility, concentrated with thousands of other crazy drunks, potheads, nerds, and hopeful virgins. It's the center where young adults feel free to do as they wish considering booze, drugs and sex are beknowngst parents, and only until holiday vacations are when their precious sons and daughters come home clean and sober (most of the time). It's the namesake of a heavily financial burden and longterm debt paid by the attendee soon after they (hopefully) graduate.

2. The Real World meets Animal House.
Girl: College is going to be awesome! I can't wait to meet all the guys!
Nerd: I will graduate with a B.S. in Physics.
Boy: I'm a Sigma Chi.
Professor: I hate these little bastards.
Parent: It's as if they're suckling on my retirement funds.
