I was talking this past week with some recent high school graduates who are headed to college. They were asking me what the "true" scoop on college is. By that, I mean since they have no experience in the halls of ivy, they know only what others have told them about higher education and campus life, plus what they may have experienced on their relatively brief visits.
I guess they wanted to get the perspective of this crusty veteran of college wars, so to speak. In thinking about how to answer them, I remembered that I made several blog posts here about my opinions on college. I thought this might be helpful for them, so I printed out the posts and gave them my insights, for what they are worth.
