College- worth a shot life

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
As a kid, many people get asked different variations of the same question: “What has been your best experience?” And even at that age, there are many joyful moments to consider-birthday parties, trips to the local amusement park, and bicycle-riding lessons. But often, it is not until your adult life that you go through many of your most valuable events. Some, for instance, may find their time in the hostel to be of utmost importance to them, while others sometimes find that their experience as a parent was the most rewarding one they have had. Personally though, I consider my time in college as my most valuable experience.

Right from the day first of my college life till the day last. Although, initially I thought my school days were the best, but frankly speaking, college has its own charm.

Those of us who are college veterans will never forget our freshman year at college. Some of us may like to forget our freshman year, but in general it is a time filled with anticipation, some anxiety, and wonderful discoveries.

During my second year, I enjoyed to the core. At that time, I was neither new to conform, nor old enough to feel like soon we will be leaving our college life behind. At this time I realised, you will learn that there will be people who inevitably dislike you — sometimes with good reason but other times without. When you’re away from your family, your friends become your most important support network. These are the people you turn to on campus when something goes wrong but also when something goes right.
Finally, as the final year approached, I learn how to trim my social circle. I started to think about my future. Remained on the lookout for role models. . If some area of study attracted me, I found all I can do about it.
In summary, my time in college has enriched my life in many ways. It has provided me with the necessary tools to enhance my skills more, taught me valuable knowledge about this diverse world and people and concepts in general and eventually will enable me to hopefully become more successful in life when I finally graduate and get my degree. It also has stressed to me the importance of thinking critically and asking questions in many situations. All these aspects of college have also made me more well-rounded as a person. It has been easier for me to achieve these opportunities than if I lived in some other countries, especially third-world ones. These experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them for anything. If I could go back in time and speak to my much younger self when I was first asked the question, “What has been your best experience?” the baby-faced version of me would certainly have been surprised by what my answer is now.
