Hi there. I think college is a place where you can get out of it whatever you want to. It's a great place to meet new people and exchange ideas. Sometimes you are thrown into situations (as in dorms) where you have no choice but to meet and learn about new people. And, with an open mind, that can be a lot of fun.
So, I think the most important thing about college is being open to new experiences. It's a place to learn, and that can be about subjects you study, people you meet, places you go, and yourself. Maybe that is the most important thing--you learn about yourself. And, you learn how to LEARN. You learn skills that will help you inform yourself about anything that interests you, for the rest of your life. You learn how to be a constant student.
In college, you learn how to make decisions for yourself (what classes to take, where and when to eat, when to study and when to take a break and have fun). And that can really help you understand yourself and what matters to you, and how to apply your own interests and talents to a career--to a happy life.
I don't know if this answer was helpful. But I hope so! I wish you all the best in whatever you do.
College is the place where you get to know most of the things on your own. When in your school life, you only learn what you are taught.
You get to know the mindset of different students from different schools.
Its a great platform which prepares you for your graduate life.
Do remember you make the best of friends and memories in you college life which you cherish forever.
All the best for your future!
In my opinion and life experiences there are a few important things about college for you to consider.
<h1>1. Ask yourself do you need to have a college degree for the type of job and life style you want to have? There are many career paths and small business opportunities where you do not need a 4 year degree.</h1>
<h1>2. Go to a college you can afford and do not take out student loans. Work through college to pay cash for tuition, books, food etc. Treat applying for scholorships and grants as a second job.</h1>
<h1>3. Get a degree that the market place values and will pay you for in the form of a job :).</h1>
As someone who went to college at the first time at 35, I would have to say make sure you know why you're going first. Decide what you want to do as a career and don't just go to college for the sake of going to college. There's no point in wasting your time and money just to get a piece of paper that may not even help you get a job. You can be successful in many fields without a degree and some careers where you can start working and then get a degree later if you want to advance, sometimes your employer will even help you pay to take classes. Also, if you aren't planning on getting into a competitive program right out of high school take a year off to travel abroad before you start.
Remember to embrace the experience! There will explore new subjects , learn more about your interests and meet new people. Put you best into it and it will be completely enjoyable and you will be amazed at the person you become form the experience.
College give us the opportunity to gain capabilites of analysis, so we can use it in our jobs.
Also give us the chance to begin to create a network, the impresion that you leave in you companions could influence them later, they could be your employer or give a good information about you.
College is important because companies see you as being disciplined enough to get a degree. Experience is also just as important so if you can do internships that would help tremendously with getting into the career of your choice.
Learning Basic, fundamental and practical knowledge is most important part of college life.
Having good college life is want molds you to a better human
More than knowledge what lessons of life you learn is important
