Things Not Taught In College But We Should


College is the dream destination of every student. Every student after finishing their schooling wish to move to college, the graduation. We all want to live the college life. We want it badly. But college life is tough, different from your schooling. It seems like life has changed, it turns around completely.

Once you are out of school, you start missing your school a lot more. This is human nature. When we are in schools, we want college, now when you finally are into college, you start missing your school badly. Anyways, School and College both are important. Both have their own importance, pros, and cons. 

Both institutions educate us. They are serving to educate and train students during their lives. Both fulfil somehow the same purpose only with a slight difference. While schooling prepares you for higher education, for college life, College prepares you for the afterlife. The one step ahead in your lives.

The question is does college really prepares you for the afterlife. Does it teach you everything required to take the next big step? The answer to this question will be yes for some, depending upon their experiences and it will be no for some who do not have a good experience. And there will be some who do not know what to say. They are neutral.

Although college is a fun place, you enjoy, you are treated as grown-ups with a lot of freedoms and responsibility. There is also excellent education provided to students which help them make their career and achieve greater heights.
