College
    #3576562 - 01/03/05 10:11 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

For all of you people who went to college, what was your impression of it? This question is more oriented towards people who went and are no longer enrolled.

For me, it was a complete waste of time and money. I want my $30,000 and two or so years of my life back.

Strangely enough, all of the people my age that have a college degree don't work in their respective field and instead manage fast food restaurants and such.

Im still in college. Been that way for almost six years now. I gotta stop changing my major hehe. I agree with ya Randal, I want my time and money back. If I would have just started traveling after highschool, I could work my wat around the world without a billion dollars worth of debt looming over my head. Now I figure I might as well finish, seeing as how I've pumped so much of my self into this damn journey for a worthless piece of paper. Oh well, maybe next life I'll get it right.

college was stupid. i hated it. maybe if my professors wouldn't have been so lame. you can usually hook up with lots of drugs there but also alot of shadey assholes who would roll on you in a sec. but yea i enjoyed the acid. i did also meet a bunch of great folks too. i learned alot whether they thought so or not.

college was an incredible improvement over high school.

I met a ton of friends, made cash hand over fist, saw lots
of naked girls, took awesome classes and picked a great
major.

if it weren't for college, I wouldn't have gotten into the field
that I'm in now...and if I wasn't in this field, I'd probably be
picking strawberries in salinas or doing time in chino.

I've had mixed results with college. I'm like you
beejay, I've changed my major so many times I've got
a shitload of hours and no degree. I was determined
to get something out of it when I started and took a
lot of classes that I had no use for whatsoever just
b/c I thought the subject matter was interesting.
I've taken tons of art history, english, and writing
classes and I'm a fuckin' business management major
(this semester).

The worst part about my school is that it's a conservative
campus so I'm usually just walking around in la la land when
I'm at school. Conservatives aren't that hard to deal with
if you're really high. It's almost impossible to take them
seriously. My school actually had the opportunity to let
Tommy Lee come film a t.v. show and they turned it down,
those bastards.

I can't stop though b/c when I do they'll make me
start paying back my loans. I guess if I ever get
a degree I'll have to go to graduate school to defer
my loans. You don't have to pay them
back if you're dead do you? Just a thought...

Ok, I'm done rambling. I guess it depends on what you're
hoping to get out of it.

everyone that goes to college should just do themselves
a favor and get a degree in business.

anything else short of that, less pre-med, is a waste of time.

if you want to learn about art, literature, philosophy, do it
in your spare time while you're making a decent living.

otherwise you're going to be a broke ass deadbeat with too
much worthless information for your own good.

That's funny, I think I'd feel that college had
been a complete waste of time if it weren't for
the literature, art and philosophy classes,
when I'm learning it on my own I don't put the
effort in it that I have to in a class.

exactly how I feel... did somebody say PHD? That could take decades to attain :smile: Unfortunately the banks will probably stop giving us loans and even if we die, Im pretty sure sudent loans get dumped on your kids. Sorry kids.

all of that(literature and philosophy) if you enjoy it, do it on your own time and don't pay for it. get a degree that you will use, not one in subterranean basket weaving....
