Top definition
a place or area where rules, regulations and behavioral norms are subject to strict enforcement or scrutiny. A person responsible for maintaining order in a controlled environment will normally strive to appear consistent when out in the open, but may enforce rules arbitrarily behind closed doors.
Kids who grow up in excessively controlled environments often fall behind in college, having all that freedom to cut loose but not knowing how to manage it.
