Re: Going to College

Yeah, but try finding one that fits for me. Chances are not so high.

I'm sure whatever the Rebbe said he didn't mean that we should all not go to college, because then we would all be like robots. Some of us fit better in Yeshiva at youth, some of us just don't quite make it.

Re: Going to College

I will try to find sources, but while there was a klal that the Rebbe was against people going to college, I believe there were some cases when the Rebbe told certain people to go.

Re: Going to College

Why don't people read the threads they post in before they post

Re: Going to College

Excuse me LION, but why don't you read the above posts?
The ones in the beginning of the thread only talk about people who went to Yeshiva fully, and then want to go to college. Nice try though.

However, I will agree that college is a waste of time, like the people who quoted the Rebbe said earlier. If they had an "express college", I would do that instead. But that's why I am working on college now, at a younger age (Well, Iv'e actually been going since I was 14, but that was only one or two classes at a time, and mostly computer classes). I just want to get a transfer so I can go to Eretz Yisrael.

Re: Going to College

Re: Going to College

Why would I read all the letters? Why don't you just grab a quote from it, it takes up less time for the both of us.

Re: Going to College

We're not exactly arguing. LION has a point, I'd just rather if he/she can grab the quote instead of me having to read all that stuff in the beginning which I don't have time to do.

Re: Going to College

I know you would rather I do that put I think it would be a good idea for you to read the whole thread, instead of starting the whole discussion from the beginning, if after you read it you still want to discuss it then fine...

Re: Going to College

a person can go to college with out actually having to be on college campus theres degrees through the internet, jewish institution that give degrees or just living at home and goin to classes. in my community many yeshiva students go to community college while living at home

Its still college! The campus isnt the only reason for not being allowed to go to college.
