I go to an extremely strict college in India. We have restrictions on everything - we aren't allowed to wear half sleeved clothing, have certain shoes, have to wear our hair a certain way. Talking to the opposite gender (let alone having a relationship with the opposite gender) is frowned upon. Teachers are extremely nasty and will try to get you into trouble for any small inconvenience. Students will also try to throw another under the bus. They're extremely nasty. Punishments can be physical abuse, verbal abuse etc. What can I do to enjoy myself? I've heard colleges aren't like this in the West. I honestly can't wait to leave and my concentration while studying is weakening.
