When it comes to college, what’s not to like? Well, maybe there’s something — like the long hours studying, the exams, and freshman dorms. But for every downer, there’s definitely some major advantages. College gives you some of the best friends and memories you’ll have.

And we’re not talking about the huge words and lengthy equations you try to read in your textbooks. The real tools come from outside; they come from abroad.
