Plus, very little drug use. Too much drinking still, but students are consistently disparaging and critical of dope and ridicule it without mercy.
Really? Not even marijuana or banana peels?
It is funny. I always thought that for this generation to rebel they'd have to be more conservative.

I've always thought that the best revenge was to be more Conservative than your parents. Kinda like Michael J. Fox in that old TV show.
In my case the college where I teach is populated by students who often are the first in their family to attend college. That makes it a serious business. Combined with the fact that it is an extremely expensive and specialized private college, it seems that they take it very, very seriously.
Oh, a banana peel or a little bud probably slips through the cracks...
All in all, very career focused.
