To Answer Your Question (my perspective):

- College was an experience!
- It's about finding yourself.
- You go out of your comfort zone.
- Kind of fun? Any fun and all fun. Then you decide what kind of fun you want to spend your life enjoying.
- Yes, both fun and education.
- Yes and no. Have fun but don't forget why you're there.
- Yes, being in college is the best place to learn how to be an adult.
