Several tiny cubicles crammed into one office as desks for graduate students. Like calves being fattened for slaughter, graduate students confined to veal crates can experience chronic stress so extreme as to require medication. Veal-crated students frequently drop our of graduate school after paying tuition for several years, thus helping to ensure that the university's coffers are filled while gaining nothing from the graduate experience but horrible memories and a few useless ideas.
Graduate Student: THIS is my office!!!?? I can't believe it; I'm a PhD student and this is supposed to be a great university. These cubicles are only four feet wide. I'll go insane.

Second Graduate Student: Welcome to the veal crates.
