A college is an institution of post-secondary education.

In the United States, the word "college" is both synonymous with "university", and also may describe a component (including a graduate school) under the umbrella of a university (e.g. a "College of Nursing"). In some cases, though, the term is used to denote an institution that only offers undergraduate degrees, or to denote a two-year institution (i.e. a community college).

However, in the United Kingdom and some former British territories, the word may used to denote a school for post-secondary, but non-degree education, defined as Further Education. Many UK secondary school students will go to a college (a Sixth Form College or a College of Further Education) after the age of 16, to study academic, business or vocational subjects up to pre-university level.

The word college is also used in a few non-educational applications, such as the Electoral College in the United States, the Royal College of Nursing in the United Kingdom, or the College of Cardinals at the Vatican.

Many colleges and professors have been known for their strong liberal biases, and for promoting liberal propaganda.[1] Depending on whether or not the student selects one of the Worst College Majors, college can leave the student in suffocating debt and delusional; the effects of which may take decades to undo if it ever happens.
