Why College is Awesome

College is a place of learning; nobody continues their education unless they really are curious or serious about their field of study. This higher level of maturity makes a world of a difference, because teachers don’t have to fight for the respect of students who don’t want to be there.

Case in point: beer in class. If you have never experienced this, and I assume everybody who is not in that particular class of mine has not, it is a most amazing picture. It is a typical scene of education: the professor is at the blackboard lecturing, the class is seated, scribbling notes and asking questions, and a bottle of beer is on every desk. Except the professor’s, which has two bottles.

That’s maturity.
