Freshman year during orientation the dean of engineering walked in and was like
"So they say you're here to learn and become a more worldly person and stuff. That's all nonsensical ******** they feed the kids in stuff like photography. You all are here to get a degree so you can make money. So don't look at this as school. This is preparation to make sure you have a way to put food on the table. "
I am so glad that I am done with schooling. I hated it so badly and really all I felt I got out of it was a piece of paper that says I'm not stupid
yes, I got though college, stop staring like you disbelieve me
seriously... stop staring.
...dudes don't make me scan my diploma for proof.
I'm close to dropping out of school, I have a job opening up at my work which has an entry salary that's more than most jobs I would get out of college and the fact that I know all of the people at work and am pretty good friends with them is honestly making me consider taking it..
To be honest, I haven't learned a single thing in college, everything I've been taught in classes I already knew and studied on my own in high school. The only thing stopping me from dropping out is I have no job security if I get laid off/fired because I won't be able to get a new job in a company I'm not already involved with.
Pretty sad state of affairs that the American university system is, where you don't learn anything and go there for a piece of paper. Hell, I don't study at all and spend maybe an hour writing my papers and not going to class.
I thought it would be different but it feels like an easier version of High School because I'm not even graded on attendance so I can blow off all my classes unless something is due.
I had one of my professors write on one of my papers that I should come to class more often to share my views. Maybe if he taught me things I would. I haven't liked any of my professors so far.
