Professor Turned Freshman

This afternoon on my KMOX show, I talked with Cathy Small (a/k/a Rebekah Nathan), a college professor who was so fed up with her students, she decided to become one. She enrolled as a freshman and kept track of what she experienced, which she has compiled for her book, "My Freshman Year."

She says that it's a lot harder now than when she (and I) were in college in the 1970s, although there's still lots of "drinking, sexuality, and craziness." But she says the drug culture is very different -- instead of yesteryear's pot-heads, today's college students are Paxil-heads.

Listen to the conversation here.
