Professors are teaching the concepts from the book. That makes you smarter and scholar. But from your fellow friends you can learn life lessons. You encounter many type of peoples such as true, fake or evil people and also the many type of events such as love, breakup etc., This hurts you but it actually sculpting you.
In former you learn the concepts from the others. In latter you create your own concepts of life. Be the great scholar and human being.
