Ten things I have learned - Milton Glaser

> Iris Murdoch in her obituary. It read ' Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.'

College Advice I Wish I’d Taken - The New York Times
A professor looks back at how they saw college when they attended vs. what they see now as a teacher. Some of the comments also have good points - many in line with the articles', some contrary.

(I'd also add that college offers many sorts of opportunities, and the best ones to focus on are the areas you need the most practice in. If you're already great at academics but struggle with making friends and social situations, then yes, spend some focus on learning to be social at the expense of A's - it's not graded, but is sure something that will both enrich your life and help your eventual career.)
