There are many methods for learning in a university such as learning from teachers, self-learning and so on. Learning with teachers are not enough so students must find knowledge by them from a library and other places in a university. This is part of learning for finding knowledge. However, I think a university is a place I can get a lot of knowledge for 3 reasons.
First, it is learning from a society. When we come to a university, we will meet new friends. So, we can learn together with new friends. This is the first thing of learning in a university.
Second, it is learning new technology. University is technology center for studying such as industrial device, computer and electricity as we call department of study. For example, studying production control in a factory by using PLC.
Finally, it is participating in activities. In a university, there are many activities for students such as sport competition, activities for social lives and so on. For example, 3 King Mongkut football. This is competition for relationship among students in 3 King Mongkut.
In conclusion, university is a wonderful place, which you can get social life, new technology and activity. This is knowledge from a university more over in class. So, you can bring knowledge in university to apply to use on everyday about working. What do get from a university?

Universaty life is supposed to be colorful and filled. Yes, what you could learn is a whole wide range of stuff and you demand more, you would benefit yourself more.

Wish I could have attended the university.

A lot of people I know view university differently. . .they see it as
A) a place to be away from their parents and do a lot of crazy things
B) a place to find their future husband or wife
C) a place to go through the motions of learning (and perhaps not actually learn anything) in order to get a degree, which gives them a chance at a good job. Because of the American emphasis on wealth and materialism, a lot of students don't care about the learning, they just want to make money.
