I’ve always believed that college life is the best phase in one’s life! That’s when we start to steer the direction of our career, realize goals, weave dreams, gear up for the upcoming responsibilities and challenges, and aspire to achieve excellence in life.
It has often been said that school days are the best days of our lives. But the unsaid part lies in the fact that college life can be equally amazing, only if we're wise enough in making the correct choice.
