If I could go back in time and tell myself about what I've learned about college, it would be to not drag my feet so much and just get to it! I spent five years after graduating high school of being in and out of community college and I finally decided on a future for myself. But along the way, never did I ever actually finish my Associates Degree in Liberal Arts, or anything for that matter! Now I'm five years behind for starting my life and feel like I havn't accomplished anything. I would definitely jump out of that time machine and kick myself in the butt!
You should focused on the quality of the education you are receiving rather than the "college experience". While partying may be fun while it lasts, it won't make a bit of difference in you job prospects and if you're partying instead of studying it could actually decreased them. Whatever school you go to make sure it has a good program for what you're pursuing. While prestige is important, you don't have to spend $50,000 a year just for a degree. We all know that a degree in buttsniffing from Harvard is more respected than graduating Summa Cum Laude from almost any other university but you have to ask yourself "is it worth it?". Consider going to a community college. No one will have concerns over you spending a year or two at a community college in the long run (despite what some people say) as they'll be looking at where you get your Bachelors as a Bachelors cancels out your associates degree. Lastly, if you need help, don't be afraid to ask for some. There are plenty of services a colleges to get you through whatever problem you may have.
