Things Said By Actual Students and University Professors

As I stand triumphantly on the finish line and wave goodbye to three years of screenwriting at university, I thought I would share a few gems with you.

What were we fighting for? The right for younger generations to attend higher education. Education is for everyone, not just the rich.
