Things I learned in college:

1) A college degree lets others know you're capable of learning, nothing more.

2) The professors that are the most liberal have never had another job.

3) A good percentage of Freshmen that were goody-goody in high school aren't anymore. (Cheryl, Susan, Karen and Kim, thank you from the bottom of my heart)

Other life lessons:

1) Nobody gives a crap what you think except you.

It also proves that you're capable of accomplishing a long-term goal and overcoming certain adversity.

Hey now, not everyone in college has zero life experience outside of school. But I do agree with everything else you said.


I know some other exceptions to that rule with similar life experience like yours. They all tell me it's like being back in kindergarten.



I often feel like Happy Gilmore. The immaturity level of many college age kids is amazing.

Of course it does, for some. Some college students are there because they don't know what they want to do and don't want to work in the meantime. Still others experience absolutely no adversity of any kind. The point being that a prospective employer knows nothing about the job applicant other than what is in front of him in a cover letter/resume.

Welcome home my brother. I was also 0311... My son, being raised by a crazy marine must've decided he didn't want to be one of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children, so at this moment he's in week 4 of his Navy basic training. He's gonna be a corpsman.

My reasons; 1.) Liberal Arts Colleges, notice the irony 2.) College prices have sky rocketed that most are in debt up to their eyeballs without a concern on how to pay it off, notice the irony once again 3.) Once most finish college they expect a good paying job without really working for it, wow more irony!

Dont get me wrong, I have a B.S. and a M.S. and have nothing against colleges or college students, but in the past 10 years this society has changed dramatically and colleges seem to be pushing the liberal agenda full time. This full time push will without a doubt attract like minded people.
