    Oklahoma university president: School is not a ‘day care’ or ‘safe space’

    An Oklahoma university president has an incendiary message to politically correct students: Grow up or get out.
    "This is not a day care," Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, wrote in a fiery blog post on the school’s website last week.
    "This is a university!"
    Thanks to a new wave of political protests on college campuses — like the recent upheavals at the University of Missouri, Yale University and Ithaca University — many colleges are scrambling to provide safe spaces and broader discussions about cultural and racial tensions on campus.

    Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper slams PC campus culture in a new blog post.
    Piper, president of a private evangelical Christian university with about 1,200 students, is having none of it.
    His post starts by railing against a student who said he felt “victimized” by an on-campus sermon about love.
    "Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic!" Piper writes.

    The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University said the school is not a "safe space."
    "Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims!...If you want the chaplain to tell you you’re a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you’re looking for."
    Piper insists the school is "not a 'safe space,' but rather, a place to learn....This is a place where you quickly learned that you need to grow up!"
    This hardly Piper’s first firebomb editorial against liberal values. As a weekly columnist for Bartlesville’s Examiner-Enterprise, the university president has written recent editorials criticizing transgender activism, defending law-breaking Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis and opposing the Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage.
    Piper could not be immediately reached for comment.

    I think it's a 'time out' for millennials

    Say what you will about religious schools, but every single one of the students that graduated from my catholic high school went onto promising careers.

    ^This x 1000. I was really hoping this would be coming from a president of a sizable school, not a wackjob from a 1200 student bible camp.
