This Is What It’s Like to Be Homeless in College

“I was at a bar awhile back with some of my university friends, sharing beers and relaxing, when a homeless man approached us. He had a deck of cards, and was trying to entertain us for money. Everyone laughed him off, making the usual jokes about homeless people trying to bum change for drugs. I didn’t say anything. After a few beers, I quietly excused myself. I had a curfew that night at the homeless shelter.”
