Pet Peeve: College vs Collage

This is something that really annoys me. I hate reading about a kid that’s going to “collage” to study something that they don’t want to learn. It bothers me to think that someone let this kid graduate and admitted them into something that they can’t even spell.

The difference, is simple:

  • College: is the place you go after high school to learn about a subject that you’ll probably never use.
  • Collage: is something that is made out of a patchwork of many different things.

Although you can make a collage in college and you can turn your college years into a collage of pictures/experiences, the two are not the same.
