If you’re interested in student life, you’re either a former student who wants to remember how it was to study at college or you’re studying at school and planning to continue your education in college after a year or more. Future applicants who want to learn more about student life are very eager to enter the college; otherwise, they wouldn’t search for all possible ways to gain an insight into how it is to be a college student. If we ask you, “What can you recommend to prospective students who understand nothing in college life?”, you’ll probably advise them to communicate with friends who are close to graduation from college, or alumni. None besides them knows all hidden backgrounds.
But not all college students have such friends. What should they do? Of course, watch TV shows or movies. And despite watching TV was a harmful activity for young people all our life, nowadays, some experts tend to convince otherwise. So we should stop thinking of TV negatively: it’s a good source of useful information, just like the Internet. Therefore, watching TV shows to find out more about the students’ lifestyle is a good way to jump right in. The main thing is to choose a good TV show. Not all of them can boast of fair representation of the behaviors and events, so we decided to create a compilation of the best and the most truthful TV shows about student life.
