6 months later, i will graduate from my now school, and maybe i will leave campus forever. think back past 6 years in college, it seems no useful knowledge i had acquired, research, paper are all theoretic. and a student without work experience is no use to firms, especially is a disadvantage in fortune 500 company however, what can you learn from college?

Well, there are many colleges, and many different people out there. So I guess we gain different experience from our college. As for me, I just graduated from Taylor's University College which have gave me many experiences. In Taylor, things were very different compared to my Primary and Secondary schools. I learned many things, for instance, managing my money wisely since I had full responsibility on the money my scholarship agency gave to me. Unlike in schools, I didn't get full responsibility. Beside that, I get to know and learn more of other people of different races and nationality since there were many foreigners in my college. It is a great experience because it prepares me for my future undertakings. Moreover, I gained many experiences on the way to manage my fear of standing in front of many people and dealing with crowd. Since I enrolled in ICPU, where we had to do many presentations and group discussion it boost my confidence. Not to forget my dearest teachers who had encouraged and taught me to be a brave, confident person. Maybe there are more, but these is all I can remember right now. I hope you will be using the knowledges you gain.

I think the thinking way and style is the most important what the college has taught me. I used to be a girl always dreaming without much thinking, but the college life has really taught me a lot and stimulated much of my thinkings towards life.

I have been in college for the past years and what I have acquired is the knowledge which will help me get a work, infact it is not totally that, because we did so many assigments, test, exams just to be graduated and then when we search for a job they ask for experience which we do not have so it is a bit frustrating though. However I am lucky to have the experience of being in a college and to see how things evoluate over there. Maybe at some junctures in life you might use the knowledge you had acquired in college days.
