If you have concerns that a college's "political correctness" has gotten to the point where it would impede your ability to receive a well-rounded education, where people are allowed to ask questions, and raise issues that may be hot button issues, but don't want to fear being expelled, suspended, or ostracized for during so, then yes. If you want to go to college, just be nasty or rant about how you hate somebody, then free speech laws won't protect you from that. What people should realize is, is that free speech is only for the government. If it is a public college, then you're only protected from the college itself, restricting your speech, and there's many exceptions to free speech laws. And then, even if you go to a college that doesn't restrict your speech, but the people who go there tend to be more easily upset by things you say things that could piss people off, there's always going to be consequences from your peers, if you upset them, and that's not something you have a right to be protected from. First Amendment only applies to government action, so public institutions, not private schools (unless they receive federal money or something).
