College As Told by 'Friends'

College As Told by 'Friends'

Cheryl Nuzum

openerEven though it premiered around the same year most of us were born, “Friends” is a classic lastings generations. It’s a show about a group of twenty-somethings fumbling around their lives, trying to figure out jobs, relationships, setbacks and failures, all while being strung together by one-liners and inside jokes. How relatable is that?
(Bonus points: Now, we can all laugh at the 90’s hairstyles and the computers people actually used back then.)
 
Although the show begins it’s story post-college years for the characters, it still speaks to the college generation on multiple levels.
