5. But mostly what's happening

is that they just want the degree without the content, and a degree from a fashionable institution is inherently better.

As for the intellectual and social world, most of the kids have their own little bubble. That's the thing about social media, instead of needing a frat to get together and be pushed to have stupid views you can just hop into a little social-media world for the same thing. Instead of having a frat party where the brothers push each other towards increasingly reprehensible behavior it's an online group--with the same thuggishness or joy in violating and abusing others and ostracization if you fail to comply with the group-think.

As for schools affiliated with some denomination, usually you can't tell what denomination except at the margins. Rules on faculty conduct, some statue on campus, the presence of a chapel most students never go to or a symbol in the school's shield or logo. Liberty U is treated as an extreme outlier because it is.
