There are many reasons why people say that college will be the best year of their life. Putting the obvious aside, you actually know people who are likely to stay with you for a long, long time. We make connections and friendships that prove to be real and can only happen in college.
We want to share with you exactly why many people think that our friends from college are some of our best friends in the world.
You Were Friends Around The Time When You Probably Needed Your Friends The Most
Most of us definitely know how intense and difficult college can be. There are exams, there are studies, we are taking out student loans and so many other things, that our stress levels are practically at maximum most of our time there.
Therefore, friends are one of the few things that help us keep them together and that is no small thing.
They Were Your Family When You Needed Them Or Were Feeling Homesick
When you were in college, you were probably far from home, away from your parents, siblings, and friends in your hometown. So you have found the closeness you are looking for in your new friends, who are usually your roommates.
They Have Seen You At Your Worst
Whether it’s a panic attack, exams, stress, or emotional breakdown, your friends from college are there to help you get through it. And despite seeing it all, they still liked you and wanted to be your friends!
They Have Seen You At Your Best
If there were bad times, there were definitely good times too! And your friends from college are probably out there too.
Like when you passed an important exam or received some kind of good news, most of the time, your friends from college are the first ones you share the news with and vice versa.
You Share Important Life-knowledge With Them
Living together in bedrooms can be a good thing for another reason: Basic life skills are taught. What goes into the microwave and what doesn’t, how to properly wash your clothes, and anything else you can imagine. This is an important part of preparing for “real life” after college.
You Probably Work Together Too
College students often have jobs, which helps throughout the process of “surviving college as a failed student.” In many cases, your friends have likely helped you get a job or even start a job with them.
How many of your old friends from college are still your best friends? Please let us know.
