A lot of people seem to have a negative idea about college for some reason...Either they are pretentious fuck
s, or all the students they know do arts.
College, or university
, is a large institute of further learning which one attends after secondary school. Often, students leave home and live on their own with other students, learning how to pay their own bills and keep up a home on their own without calling mum and dad every time some little thing goes wrong.
While at college, it is traditional to consume large amounts of alcohol
, and sex
. Students must also attend lectures and, for the sart people (ie those doing science and engineering) there are labs as well.
College is not like school
. In school, the emphasis is completely on memorization, while in college, it is very much on grok
king. Also, the lecturers are actual professionals (such as scientists, engineers, lawyers, artists, etc) rather than mere teachers.
After three or four years, the student graduates with a degree. An arts degree is pretty useless, but most others are handy for getting a good job so that the former student may pay back whatever debt they may have accrued.
