The system is definitely flawed and by no means perfect. I’m a firm believer in the transformative power behind Education. It definitely made a difference in my life and in the lives of many people I know. College taught me a very valuable lesson — you have to teach yourself and not depend on your professors or a certain course to learn. It exposed me to certain experiences that I could not have gained otherwise. Yes, at the end of the day we are all doing it for the diploma but college, a formal education, is so much more than that. I was a humanities major, and there’s a lot of shit that the average person doesn’t know but should know. Sometimes you need the help of someone more experienced to do that, and for that I am thankful.
