exploring avenues
as the collegiate
gates open
discovering that
field of study
leading to a career
some may have wanted
others found intriguing
through difficult exams
hours of lectures
all-nighters of study
while gaining
independence of self
for friends found
help you
hone and develop
personality traits
through events
sad with disappointment
mad with betrayal
hilarious with laughter
enduring closely all the
happy memories
forming the
individual you are
as an adult
after those collegiate
gates close
