I tried to write a long response, but was foiled by this UI. Basic gist, college is valuable beyond the academics and the degree-leading-to-a-job. For better or worse, it offers experiences and relationships through its four years that one may never have outside of college. For this main reason, I think colleges will survive.
I’ve been following what you’ve been doing recently. You’re an inspiration, Eden. I’m proud of you.
(Shout out to your homie, CVSPPF, for making it into that picture.)
