why do people attend college or university?
College or university is the place that students can learn more and obtain new knowledge. Different persons have differences reasons to study in the university. Some people hope to acquire new experiences, increased knowledge, and so on. In my point of view, I think that the aim of those people who continue their further studies in university is just for preparation for their future life.
A top of all reasons for studying in university is that the students are able to learn new knowledge and experiences. In this era, it is the society of knowledge. The more knowledge people have, the higher position they are. During studying in the university, the teachers or professors who are abundant theories and practical skills will teach their student to solve the difficult problems. When these educators graduate, they will go to work in society and contribute to different fields.
Not only learning new knowledge and experiences, the students can also learn how to arrange their own time reasonably. When they were children, their schedules were controlled by their parents and teachers. From my experience, this is different from university student’s life. The university students have right to manage their life. They can wake up anytime they want, however the teachers and parents are also behind them. This management is another lesson for preparation for future life which they have to spend their life alone.
The next important aspect of studying in the university is having opportunity to know with other people and how to cooperate with others. While studying in university, the students meet the other persons who have different backgrounds and ideas. Usually, they feel uncomfortable with some strangers, but for long run, they will adapt and learn to work with the others. This is preparation for future life to associate with the other ones.
All in all, the students will learn only the academic knowledge but also learn how to deal with the situations which are similar to real society. No matter what the university is, the student uses this period to prepare for future life.
