College is when a child develops into an adult, a child gets out of school, faces a completely different world. This world possesses different challenges and forces him to take up responsibilities.
Indeed, I completely agree that college life is the best time in a person’s life.
In college, as a student we are exposed to an ocean of challenges. Each individual learns to accept these challenges, work on them, develop strategies and plans, and motivate themselves to achieve success. A student learns to become a self-motivator, independent, strong and the will to take up responsibilities.
Personally, I learnt a lot of lessons in my college life which I believe made us a better person. For example, we were given a project to complete within a stated deadline. We had to plan out our time, so we could complete the project on time for submission. Through this, we have learnt an important skill of time management. I also learnt to believe that any well planned goal is easy to achieve.
Additionally, college life also gives us a chance to meet new people. It makes us develop a good communication skill. It introduces us to people having various backgrounds, including cultural and academic aspects. It helps us in opening our minds to various thoughts, views and opinions.
And yes, college also gave me a lot of freedom. I have been in a position where I had a variety of choices and important decisions I had to make. Choices included following the crowd blindly or standing up for myself as an individual and have a confidence to against the crowd, like for example, deciding to drink or smoke like my friends did or not to. But we gladly and confidently decided never to smoke or drink. Some friends did mock us initially but that never mattered. As I was confident with the decision I made and I had my basics of the to-do’s and not-to’s right!
Thus, college life indeed is the best time in a person’s life. It offers us freedom and a chance to learn various lessons. It makes us a better individual by making us a strong responsible being capable of motivating ourself. I’m proud of the person I’m today and I’m grateful to my college that gave me the opportunity and thought me my lessons well. I really admire my squad on the picture because they have rocked my college journey. It surely was the best part of my life.
