Summary
"During the college years most students face the three most important decisions of life: the choice of a vocation, the choice of a mate, the choice of a way of life. Their experience in the college years may help them move toward the crucial decisions, or it may bog them down in indecision. But colleges afford resources to help students make decisions that can open up a happy and effective life. For instance, the college curriculum offers courses that develop interest and skill in various fields of knowledge related to many occupations. College courses are organized in sequences that lead to the choice of a major field in which to specialize, and to an occupation in which the knowledge and skill can be applied. The student has a course mapped out for him to follow, leading to an occupational choice and a career. The college years also provide close and frequent association with students of both sexes. On a coeducational campus, or during weekends at a men's or women's college, association with students of the opposite sex offers unsurpassed opportunity for acquaintance to ripen into friendship, friendship into courtship and marriage. Perhaps never again will a student find so many people of his age and of like abilities and interests so conveniently grouped together. Even the inevitable rules and regulations, the organizations and committees, that seem so confining or boring, help students develop enduring patterns of living and working with others. The values found in college life also endure as a foundation of the way of life followed in later years"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)
