I completely agree that the college years are the best time in a person’s life. Actually, college
often correspondents with a time when people are young, healthy and physically strong. Those
attributes are held in high regard in any cultures. Obviously, college years are also viewed as a
period of high stress and certain hardships and trials, but there are several pleasures that put
college years on the book of unforgettable memories.
Pleasures converge on college from many directions. First, this is an important turning-
point in choosing a major field to study, ultimately, to select a career, choice that will affect the
rest of student’s life. This is also the first time he has had enough manner and capacity to make
his own decision on future, to prepare himself and by himself for making his choice a success
later. May be, the pleasure of freedom in choice is a valuable encouragement that motivates
him to go ahead to better his life.
For another thing, although the workload in college is pretty heavy, there is no pressure to
get work on schedule. It is really easy to put off studying in the beginning of each semester and
work hard later so long as he can catch up on his assignment. This is very preferable to student
who works his way through college.
In addition to academic pleasures, the one of being partially financially independent is highly
appreciated. At college years, student is supposed to be mature, intellectually capable enough
for working and earning his own way so as to free himself from asking money for money, the
circumstances are rather uncomfortable to any students. To take part –time job, he may create
chances to apply, consolidate what he has learned at school, simultaneously, to improve his
knowledge by practicing and learning more in realily.
A college student myself, I view this time of life as an opportunity to prepare for the next, to
get used to self-reliant life. If I can go through my college years successfully, a prospect of
being a well-to-do man will open widely to for me.(349 words)
