College experience models individuals by making them develop important life and professional skills. When joining the college, most people expect to have good in their education, but mostly the reality turns out to be a sour experience (Bush 16). I present unique expectations, as I am motivated to complete my college studies and be successful as my role models. The paper highlights my expectations from the college education and education.
Initially, I expect to get social gains from the college experience. The college highlights a networking centre since it comprise of individuals who come from diverse backgrounds. Many people meet new links at the college and the future networks in the corporate life come from college links. My friends at the college come from many disciplines. I prefer having friends from different disciplines because I need these connections in the future. This is essential in improving my capacity by enhancing development of a multifaceted personality. However, some social disadvantages also come from the college experience. This may include emergence of conflicts especially when I encounters people who believe in positions that may appear wield in my view. After college, the developed social links will enable me to grow more socially and economically.
Furthermore, from the college life and experience, I expect to get professional and economic gains. For some people, this is the main reason why they come to college. From college, some people will ply their way in employment in order to earn a living. At the same time, other people will venture in entrepreneurship as a way of earning an income for their daily lives. I expect to get similar gains from the college experience. However, the soft skills I get from college will help me more in employment and employability, as they will be able to form themselves as attractive in the job market.
I also expect to learn life skills and other life situations from my experience in the college. Life does not involve a soft run of events. Challenges face people in life and the people must solve such challenges. The college is the best place to get experience in dealing with such issues. College life teaches me self-confidence through challenging me to interact with the greatest minds. It teaches me to be assertive and to take an initiative through challenging tasks that require that I make decisions. Decision-making is a skill that challenges in application hence it is imperative for me to get them from the college.
The college life provides us with an important experience that enhances our development. I expect the college experiences to help me in life solving and problem handling by developing essential life skills. This will help me to live well with other people in the society and tackle life challenges with ease. I also expect the college life to boost my economic life, as I will attain skills obtain a good career or become a successful entrepreneur. Furthermore, the college will help me get networks that can enhance my welfare in the future. The challenges in the college experience only provide the chance to learn how to handle threatening situations in life. Concisely, the college life and experience remains a prerequisite that I need to develop a better future.
