  1. College isn’t just for career, it’s for the experience. So good on you, not going for the party or how you think it will impress others or set you up for a job. Do it for your own enrichment. Determine your own course of study. The 4 years to find yourself and bond with people in a way life will never afford you again – easy to gloss over when you’re young, but I assure you will cherish as you age. Unless you’re suckered in by a for profit ponzi scam school, no one ever says they regret the College experience, but many regret they didn’t go, especially when they were still young.
