For many people, attending college or university means leaving their houses and starting to live alone without parents and their rules or the time that they must be home at night. But in my opinion this feeling of freedom is only a consequence of the decision to go to university for a career preparation.
In our lives we usually have a lot of dreams when we are children, some people usually say "I want to be a soccer player" or "I will be a doctor" and so on. But we grow up and start to change these dreams until a final decision that can be our childhood dream or a new profession, totally different from the first one.
The next step is to choose a university and it is almost aways in another city. In this moment people start to think about the new experiences that they will live, and the new people that they will meet. And if these people never had made the decision of what they want to be, they will probably never go to a university. And those experiences and new friends won't probably make them go to a university only for it.
Therefore I believe that people who attend college for a career preparation and the feeling of freedom, the new experiences, new friends even being good motivations are just consequences, not the main reason.
