3. TO FIND YOUR VOICE—College is the last step into adulthood. For most students, it is the first time they’ve been on their own, away from their parents’ watchful eyes. With the world at their feet, they can explore any subject they want to learn about and form opinions on their own. Their personal beliefs may be explored, tested, and firmly established. The freedom to express these beliefs can instill confidence, and sometimes leads to the creation of movements with the power to change a society. I can think of several moments in history, where university students have fought for change in their own countries, Occupy Wall Street being only one of them.
