Why so many colleges are education-free zones

Melanie Kirkpatrick reviews The Five-Year Party by Craig Brandon at the Wall Street Journal: “If you have a child in college, or are planning to send one there soon, Craig Brandon has a message for you: Be afraid. Be very afraid. ‘The Five-Year Party’ provides the most vivid portrait of college life since Tom Wolfe’s 2004 novel, ‘I Am Charlotte Simmons.’ The difference is that it isn’t fiction. The alcohol-soaked, sex-saturated, drug-infested campuses that Mr. Brandon writes about are real. His book is a roadmap for parents on how to steer clear of the worst of them.”
