Remember kids, if you're born after 1981 you're automatically a libtard spoiled brat with a sense of entitlement who got participation trophies for breathing and you should be dragged into the street and shot.

On the bright side, it seems kids today are getting the safe sex message.

That's what happens when you do things in a state school.

Go to a private school, they can afford staff to clean things up.

Or go to Asia or Europe, they understand the concept of moderation.

Or, go back about 25 years in time, before we decided that university was supposed to be an extended high school graduation party with an open invitation list...

Northwestern is the most expensive private university in the country.

He's an adjunct. I'm surprised he doesn't have to clean up campus as part of his contract.

a Northwestern University professor has quit his job because of the campus's hard-partying culture.

I was a TA at Texas for two years.  The first thing they told us was that 20% of the student population had a mental illness.  My sections had a total of 400 students.  I believe he was underestimating.

It sounds like he's got a job at Loyola, and he taught a class or two every now and then at NW because, what the heck? It's right across the street, and it's a few grand a semester, and he could use the same material he had to prepare for his real job anyway. Now he's moving, it's no longer convenient, so he won't do it anymore.

In much the same sense that Jabba the Hutt is a cute little alien.

Northwestern is practically the 51st state.

Why in the world would any college professor choose to buy a home so close to campus? Find a place a few miles farther away and you won't have to worry about these kinds of shenanigans.

Unless, of course, your students really hate you and are deliberately targeting you and your home.

Adjunct Associate Professor?  Adjuncts are ranked at Northwestern? Can you go up for adjunct promotion to Full Adjunct Professor?

It's not that college kids party any more now then they did in the past, it's that they have no respect for anything these days.

I have a feeling it's the latter. The sort of douche that buys a house that close to campus, then  quits his job because his yard is a mess, is probably the sort of douche who annoys the fark out of his students.

Yeah, that's my suspicion, that he's sort of a douche and brought it on himself. But even if he's not, he should be smart enough to realize living close to campus frequently means dealing with a lot of loud, drunk students who party all night long.

I lived close to campus just after I graduated and before I found a full-time job. It was pretty miserable, but then, I didn't have a whole lot of money to spare and living in a student ghetto apartment was all I could afford. A professor shouldn't have that limitation.

No, there's nothing wrong with being annoyed about idiots. There  is something douchey in expecting your college's admin to control off-campus behavior of frat boys, then taking your ball and going home because they don't.

Well, no matter what the situation, schools do not control off-campus behavior, especially for adults. Unless you live on campus, STFU. You're not a farking snowflake.

Maybe.  I just sort of got this instant rejection of the notion that at any given time, a given subset of the population is allowed to be complete dickheads and if you don't like it, it's your problem, not theirs.  I've just never put that one in the cart and made it to the checkout line.

He got good ratings in his main job at Loyola.  And the adjunct job he quit at Northwestern was pretty marginal compared to his tenured department chair position at Loyola.  It doesn't take much incentive to quit that even without troglodyte students ruining your yard.

If you choose to live in a desert, but have the option of living somewhere else, then you shouldn't complain about the heat. Anyone who's ever been to college knows the area close to campus is usually populated by students and students act in a certain way. I'm a pretty liberal guy, but there's no way I'm going to see this guy as a complete victim.

Kinda what I was thinking - thanks for expressing it.  However, they do have a point.  Even though burglary is illegal, we all have locks on our doors.

So this is really about enforcement, and teaching young adults how to behave in a lawful society.  Unfortunately that burden falls on the property owners on or around college campuses.
