Living in a university college is often described as the best time of your life. The media on the other hand, usually tells a different story. One of brutal hazing ceremonies, dangerous initiation games and serious mistreatment of women. But what was it really like for the students themselves? How did three people who experienced the same type of community, in their own way, feel about it? We asked three students to paint their own picture of college.

Produced by Selena Shannon and originally broadcast on FBi Radio as part of All the Best episode #1605: Temporary Communities. Opening narration by All the Best host Pip Rasmussen. 

Music: Springtime by Podington Bear
