"Trying to get them to look at college as a chance to make lifelong friends/connections not just going to class."

I met a guy on the very first day of class, during my very first college semester a LONG time ago - 40 years this coming September. We became lifelong friends and see each other (with a few other guys from back in the day) at least once or twice a year. We even (amazing for a bunch of old timers like us) use our sell phones to text/call each other once in a while. It is true that those friendships can last a lifetime.
