Tiny At College
You're a tiny who's only 1 inch tall, who got into the University giants mostly go to, you took the risk because of the lack of adequate Universities for tinies.However, if you want to receive your degree you'll have to survive.
Here's a brief history of the world so we don't have to go through a bunch of exposition to explain things. Tinnies were only considered pets or slaves (depending on who you ask) untill about 7 years before present days where buying tinnies became illegal. However it wasn't illegal to own one if you already did. There is a giant illegal tinny black market as a result, and since tinnies are so small it's not uncommon that tinnies that were born free get abducted. For reference you were born free.
