It was 40 years ago, I haven't a clue what they do today. They didn't do much when I was there.

Big Questions, not much in the way of networking. Curriculum teaches you to learn and adapt rather than just memorize. Tools, life skills, time prioritization, etc...

It was too long ago. I played tennis every day, but the college had nothing to with it other than having tennis courts available.
