A college campus is more comfortable for students, as here they don’t feel too enclosed within the four walls of classrooms. It is their free world to express their minds and exchange ideas. Here, they are not constantly monitored by teachers and professors.
The scholars, here are adults and they are free to attend classes or discard them according to their wish, obviously up to a limit. Though in a college, students stand close to a thin line of being responsible or being free to do whatever their mind demands.
