I think the best thing I learned was that I was an adult and had to make my own choices not only in school but it life.

In high school you're basically told what classes to take. In college you choose a major and then have to take the best classes for that major. There is no one there to hold your hand.

In a sense, college taught me what life was going to be like. You make the choices best for you and then hope that you did the right thing.

I loved college because it taught me how to be an adult.

Everyone has a different experience in college. It depends on your personality, your desire to learn or lack thereof, and also the school itself.

When I went to college, I learn great skills, I learned how to study, and I learned some very important life lessons.

I would have to agree that the best thing I learned was how to take care of things myself. Not to mention the great life long friends you make in college.

I also made friends in college. Many of them.
Now I don't see any of them on a regular basis :(

life just took us by surprise and kind of mixed us up and around

I had a long time Austinite tell me that this weekend that they just went to Austin Land and Cattle this past week and that it was the best steak they had ever had. It is next on my list.

I learned how to write better and more coherently, and that sometimes people who're older than me aren't right about everything, and that sometimes studying on your own is better than taking a class on a subject. :geek:

So far I've learned a lot and I'm not done yet. Like others have said, making my own choices was a big shock. I learned very quickly that I needed to actually choose to attend class rather than choose not to. Temptation almost got me for a while. In terms of actual academia, I've learned to write better than I used to. I've also learned a lot about people in general. I've been taking too many psych and anthropology courses maybe!
