Not just colleges...Shit..the HS up the street from me has a 5000 seat stadium...and they suck. Huge new scoreboard, that mixed type astroturf field with the ground up tires or something. My HS was lucky to even have an actual field to use.
Did you also have to walk uphill both ways to go to school?
It's funny you mention that. So back when I was 7 my parents finalized their divorce. We moved with our mother to downtown Toronto, but for some reason she decided we still needed to go to this Montessori school, 20 miles north. For the first year she would drive us, and then a teacher who lived close by would drive us home. After 1 year she decided it was too much. So the 2nd year I was 8, and my sisters were 7 and 5. We would take public transit, 2 buses and a Subway to school each way every day...@ 1 hr 15 to 1 hr 30 minutes each way depending on wait time for buses. Even by kid commuting standards it sucked ass.
