College is a time when students explore the world around them , and when they start to discover the many possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead. For many students college is a whole new world, one that is less structured yet more demanding than high school. Many students are expected to be responsible and to take care of themselves without help, often for the first time ever, and independence is expected.
If you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you're talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn't work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons
