Dystopia College is an imaginary institution in an imaginary location, its features an amalgam of the the worst attributes of American colleges and universities.
It is all about satire and parody, and though I hope it makes some points about the state of higher education today, it is meant to be taken with a grain of salt and a healthy sense of humor.
Any resemblance of any of its characters to actual people is totally unintended.
