College life is one of the most wonderful phases that we come across. The 3-4 years of college life is something that most of us have cherished. Usually, college campuses are bigger than schools and there are various departments where students can pursue courses of their choice. You’ll also find playgrounds, canteens (bigger and better than your school canteen), libraries and above all, ample places to hang out inside the campus when you have your classes off or you’re in a mood to bunk!
