“Typically textbooks and tests run some 5–10 years or so before they are revised or replaced.”

-I had previously thought that tests get replaced pretty much every year and not 5-10 years therefore this quote had caught me out of nowhere as an unexpected truth.

“In consequence, when a university becomes established in a town, the presence of this constellation of discourse communities influences the wider urban environment; as a result, the urban environment provides services that are helpful to the university, such as cheap student housing, cheap restaurants, museums, and more”

-This quote had me thinking on a deeper level on just how much the relationship between the city and colleges are as they both Carrie’s a symbiotic relationship in which both of them benefit in more aspects than just financial aspects.
