People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge). Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
---------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------

Depending on my friends' and my own experiences the answer of this topic is: to learn things you don't know yet. For a regular person, education of schools seem to be the most efficient way to learn knowledge, and a college or a university is a good place where you can start to learn the advanced knowledge based on the basic materials you have already learned. Besides, a university or a college is also a place where you can learn about how to maintain relationships with your friends, your boy/girlfriend, or your classmates. One of my professors once told me that there are three credits you must take when you attend a university, which are credits of your school works, credits of your clubs' activities, and credits of developing a relationship with girl/boy you like. And the later two terms can be simplified into getting along with other people.

Once you attend a university or a college, which are normally classified to be a higher education of a country, you must be prepared to face different challenges that you've never met before. For example, I major in electrical engineering, and the most obvious difference I notice is that stuffs I learn now are more pragmatic and more realistic. Teachers used to tell us to ignore some inevitable losses such as the heat produced when electrons go through the transmission line, which now I know will dramatically influence your design and implementation. I wouldn't have the chance to learn knowledge about electronics systematically, if I didn't attend the university, so I believe to learn new and well organized knowledge is one of the important reasons why people attend a university or a college.

In addition, people can also learn about how to deal with other people. A university or a college is just like a small size of our society. You will meet people who come from different areas, people who have different values, or people who speak different languages. And this is our opportunity to learn to deal with people that are not like you. We human cannot live without others, so how to get along with other people become an important issue. We can adjust our attitudes to be less subjective after every argument, and we can try to understand other people's standpoints whenever we have conflicts with them. I think this is also a reason why people choose to attend the university instead of other form of educations.

Although, there will certainly be somebody who disagrees with my points of view, I still believe that most of the people will agree with me. Because there are some significant issues we have to learn in our life, and improving your knowledge and dealing with other people properly are sort of these important lessons we should take. If you ask me where you can find a way to improve yourself, my answer will be : Absolutely, the university!

Thank you for your respond!!!

I mention my friend because I'm afraid that it will be arbitrary if I write arguments depending on my own experiences only.

( the topic asks "why do you think people go to a college...", but not "why do you go to a college..... ")

So if I added some experiences of my friend's, would it be OK? Or still not a good start?

Thank you :)

why do you think people go to a college..."

It asked your opinion, so you should be tell about your experience instead of friends. You can use general term like people views or opinions.

... prepared to face different challenges that you've never met before. ---If you say different AND "that you've never met" it is too much... so I took out "different"...

Great sentence here: We can adjust our attitudes to be less subjective after every argument, and we can try to understand other people's standpoints whenever we have conflicts with them.

I think this is also a reason why people choose to attend the university instead of other forms of education.
