Was college the best four years of your life?

People always tell me college is the best four years of my life and that I should enjoy it while life is so easy. I frankly think it's not the case - I like college, but I think I'd rather live on my own with my partner (who currently goes to a college 2 states away) than in a smelly dorm by myself.

I went to community college while living with my husband and raising two kids. I don't think most people mean that the schooling itself is so great, rather that it is the last chance you will get in your lifetime to be (relatively) free of responsibilites that come with the next stage of you life.
While I can't blame your feelings one bit... I echoed that sentiment myself not so long ago, but now that I am where I am, I do wish that I had appreciated my youth more.

People always say that high school or college is the best time in your life. Personally, I hope it's not. I expect to live a good long life and to peak at 21? Lame.

Not for me. I went to college twice, and they numbered among my most stressful and sleepless years.

No, college was fun but I much enjoyed the time after when I started working a 9 to 5 and had more time for myself and sleep. And I still think there's a lot more fun to come. Enjoy the stage of life you're in but don't get trapped in it!

College was definitely NOT the best years of my life. If I had to pick between high school and college, I'd pick high school as being better 100 times over.

In college again, so I can't say. I hate any environment where they allow people in with the word '-teen' in their age. I want amnesia of my teen years.

Besides, it's depressing to think that 'the best years of my life' are behind me, and they totally sucked to begin with.

My best years are being arranged right now.

College would have been the best four years of my life if it hadn't been for the classes!

It was the most life-changing and exciting 4 (well, 12 actually) years of my life. I'm not sure it was necessarily the "best" 4 years, though.

I think people say that to keep you going. The best are marriage and having a family.

I'm inclined to say no, but there were parts of it that ranked among the best of my life. I'd say my last semester was one of the best times in my life, as was a study abroad trip during the summer. The first 2 years sucked, and I didn't have a 4th, but I think that it gets better the longer you're there.

Grad school, on the other hand, is the reverse. Awesome at the outset, but it gets old quickly.
