I love to learn. And if possible I'd go to school forever. Not because I'm lazy but because there are so many many things to learn

This isn't an occupation, its a way to get one.

Anyone who thinks this is an occupation should be expelled.

If you can pull it off its a great profession. I've heard of students getting paid to go and other making bank on multiple scholarships.

There could not have been a worse student than me when I was growing up. I didn't like it then, and I more than likely wouldn't like it now.

I only prize my marriage more than my undergraduate and graduate education-but 'student' is not an occupation. If you pay for it- it's a passion or a hobby or a necessity. . .if you get a salary it's an 'occupation'. . .

With student loans and grants this is an occupation also financing from realtives. I have known many a professional student.

As many other stated, it's not a job, it's a way of preparing for a job. Doing homework, taking tests, going from one class to another, worrying about the report card, staying in a class room for hours on end, and studying for exams are not idea of fun and excitement. The only good thing about being about a student is going home afterwards and eventually graduating.

Sure, an occupation with a negative income. Pay for it, work day in and day out... but I guess what you give is what you get (hypothetically at least). Student is either an academic experience, athletic experience, social experience (if you're not home schooled), or a blank experience which you have no recollection of. I guess with a nice round touch of all of the above, it's a pretty sweet deal. Student as an occupation (in all fairness it is work) isn't bad if you find the place you belong in school/university. Basically it's a journey of self-discovery.

We all have to do it for a while. It can be a lot of fun, especially if you like learning, but it's pretty hard to make money this way. I still take a few continuing ed classes now and then just for the pleasure of learning new things and meeting others similarly inclined.

Being a student depends on your major. If you do not have a job or play any sports then being a student is pretty easy. if you play a sport it is like having a full time job.

A rewarding and interesting way to live your life, but once you get into your 30s, this gets old. Difficult to pay the bills in this way, and to start a family? Forget it. This is a good way to sleepwalk one's way through adult life, avoiding most important responsibilities and reneging on the essential purpose of life: to be productive in a palpable sense. Three stars because the pursuit of knowledge and the continuance of scholarly traditions is a noble thing, but if you're into that, you're being an intellectual phony if you don't graduate yourself up to the teacher/professor level.

I have to admit - for the last 2 years, I've been a pro student. Between the GI Bill, the Hope Scholarship, the Stafford Loan and the Pell Grant, I've been paid to go to school (not including the other scholarships I've applied for). You meet lots of other people from the opposite sex, you make new acquaintances and contacts and friends, and you learn something. VERY COOL!

Im a student in high school. I like it. But is it an occupation? No. Its like saying 5 year olds having to go to "work". Pretty silly.

Being a student occupies your time, thus it may be considered an "occupation"; it's not a job, however. It requires a lot of work (which the reward is a piece of paper that says you've been through 2-4 years of extra school rather than a weekly paycheck). Those who party too much typcially find themselves out of college fairly soon; most people just study, a lot, and work a part-time job to offset the cost of living (though most of us come out of college with great debt, anyhow). No, it's not all that easy, but it's certainly worthwhile.

It sucks because as a full-time college student, it's hard to work because you have to study and so there's no income and you feel like a schmuck asking mom and dad for money, sound familiar. That was my life as a college student.

Being a student is great, but only for part of your life. Right now, I'm satisfied just where I'm at right now as a student. Some of the people I know who work full-time say take advantage of the time you have as a student because it's lots of fun. I wouldn't say that it's fun to be a student, satisfying yes. It's fun for people that don't do nothing but party all of the time. The right thing for a student to do is study hard and prepare yourself for the real world. I probably am going to sound like a nerd (because I am a nerd), but I don't like it when I get a bad grade, so I work really hard and study up. At the end of the day, it'll pay off when I'm more competent than the person next to me who got drunk every night and woke up the next morning with vomit and cigarette butts in his mouth while he was in college.

If you enjoy reading and learning then being a student is great. It would be good to be wealthy enough to afford to take classes that don't count towards a degree. I went to college for 5 years and didnt get to learn about half the stuff I wanted to. How many classes can you take about the same subject? That's why I like those non-degree schools for adults (like the Learning Tree). You can learn about practical or fun stuff- like cooking, computers, arts & crafts, auto mechanics, etc. You get discounts if you join. You don't get a degree, but you learn alot of useful stuff.

As a current college student, I can definitely say it's not all the fun and games everyone makes it out to be, at least for me. I'm a computer engineering major and if I want to pull of decent grades, I need to study long hours everyday and be up until 5 in the morning working on projects. I don't turn on my television for weeks at a time. Also, I'm not one of those fortunate enough to have mommy and daddy foot the bill for everything. I got some of my tuition paid by scholarships, but the rest I have to come up with on my own. And summers off? Yeah right! Most students have to work some sort of a job to cover the bills. And even then, many are struggling to make ends meet, wondering how their next tuition bill is getting paid. There are many rewarding aspects of being a student, but it definitely doesn't make a good occupation. The only time it's wonderful is when you don't have to pay for any of your bills and don't need a part time job and your major is underwater basketweaving. All those things aside, I still feel that being a student is a worthwhile cause and I don't regret it one bit, it's just not all that it's made out to be in the movies.

Contrary to what some might think about college/university life, being a student isn't all that it's cracked up to be. More often than not, you're either studying or working part-time leaving little time to party, get drunk or get laid. Plus when you graduate, you have to worry about finding a profession that correlates to the skills you've acquired over the past four years. Oh yeah, and you also need to live up to your parents' expectations lest you get kicked out onto the street to fend for yourself. I certainly don't want to be a student forever. Who needs the stress? YOU DON'T GET PAID FOR BEING A STUDENT!

as an undergrad, i have mixed feelings on this. i mean, you pay 20K a year(at least) to put off joining the real world and enjoy summer vacations for a couple more years. but in the end you have the accreditation and knowledge to feed your unborn kids well 10 years into the future. heheh. it sounds like a worthwhile experience, but i hear you must have a great reserve of creativity, professionalism and stamina to make it thru grad school. of course that also depends on what field you go into.

This is not a profession; it is the preparation for one. Enjoy it while you can because it has nothing to do with real life. P.S. elegante19: Thanks for making me glad I didn't have kids. For what it's worth though and from the perspective of a baby boomer who is not emotionally involved in any way with your generation (unlike your parents) you have no idea how you sound almost exactly the same as we did 20 plus years ago. Oh, of course you're angry because they were too easy going and we thought our parents should lighten up, but it's still SSDD. You see, no matter what you do in life, someone is always ready to tell you you did it the wrong way. And so the years roll on and on.....

Ahh the life of a student. It sux sometimes, but overall it's pretty good. Sure you have assignments to do and you have to study sometimes, but it's not so bad that you don't have time for anything else. 99% of students will always find the time to go out and have some fun. Even when they've got an assignment due in the next few days. The worst thing about being a student is trying to juggle your school work and your social life. If you're young it's horrible because it's the time when you really want to just have as much fun as you can, but you know you have to get that work done. The other downside is that, unless you're lucky enough to already be rich, you often struggle with your finances because you only have the time to work part time. But other than that, the life of a student is pretty sweet, you get to hang out with your friends and learn new things, plus you're working towards improving your future.

First of all, let me explain something to you baby boomers out there. The world has changed QUITE a bit from 25- 30 years ago.Your children have quite a few more stressors.In short, they have much more accepted of them,( for example, have you taken a look at the advanced placement courses at your local high school lately?They are tackling courses that you wouldnt dare approach until half way through college!!!!!! ) they have ex-hippie parents who either helped distribute lethal diseases yet have come to preach abstinence and expect them to strongly adhere to it, or are just getting over the hill, but not capable of accepting their lost youth and give a terrible message to their children pertaining to maturity and accountability!....and their children's insecurity,drug and substance abuse are a result of this!!!!!!Their chidren are hopelessly confused, and emotionally unprepared for the university environment, yet are grateful just to have the freedom to be away from their either too laid back, or hypocritical parents and be able to "explore" the real " them" The result is tragic, most students wander aimlessly through their college years, and the agony they later feel over the wasted time far out weighs the pleasures!! ' Boomers PLEAAASSSEE stop whining over your days of " Glory" and understand the impact on young people's futures....so many terrible things can happen in the midst of these social diversions( addictions, loss of innocence, contraction of diseases, acceptance of liberal propaganda and agendas and so on.

If you have the financial means to pull it off, it gets no better than being a professional student. Surrounded by young carefree people, flexible hours, tons of resources at your disposal, and an active social life - what's not to like?
