How to find a college with a ‘cool’ vibe
- by admin
The word ‘cool’, or what people use to describe their college experience, is an important one for a number of reasons.
It’s the first thing a student of higher education needs to know when searching for an institution.
But what’s the difference between the word and what people actually say when they think of a college?
Here are some questions to help you answer.
What does ‘coolness’ mean?
What does the word mean?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘cool’: ‘a feeling of well-being and comfort’ (source: OED).
It also has a definition for ‘a high-quality, attractive place, setting or atmosphere’ (OED).
Cool is associated with an ambiance that has a sense of familiarity and comfort, while ‘high-quality’ means ‘high quality, pleasing and appealing’.
The OED goes on to explain that ‘cool students are more likely to go to a university with a high quality atmosphere, whereas cool students are less likely to take the opportunity to go there and get the experience of being there’ (article source OED, page 5).
It’s important to remember that the word ‘coffeehouse’ is used as an adjective, meaning that it implies a place where coffee is served.
This is an opinion and not a fact.
The word itself has an almost mythical past that has been associated with high standards of hospitality and hospitality culture, but this has now faded as people move to a world where the quality of the food and the atmosphere has become increasingly important.
In recent years, ‘coffeeshops’ have become a term used to describe establishments with a great ambiance, great customer service and a strong emphasis on learning and education.
Does the word cool refer to an experience or a feeling?
‘Cool’ may refer to a feeling, but it’s not the only meaning that people use when describing their college experiences.
In the OED’s Dictionary of Contemporary Usage, there are three definitions for ‘cool: ‘an experience or feeling of being cool, of being well-attended, well-served, well paid, well received, well known, popular, respected, and attractive’ (Wikipedia) Cool is used to refer to the quality or quality of a place or atmosphere.
It can refer to either the experience itself, or to a person’s perception of the quality and appropriateness of the environment.
For example, in the Oxford English Corpus, we have the definition for the word, ‘coolest’: ‘one who is cool’ (Oxford English Corpus article source Oed).
‘Coolness’ is also associated with a quality of service or hospitality.
It refers to a quality or experience in a service that is satisfactory or appreciated, while the word itself is used by some to describe a quality that is good or enjoyable.
It also relates to a place, atmosphere or place of worship that is generally regarded as ‘cool’.
Does the ‘cool thing’ make you feel more comfortable?
The word cool has been used to suggest something pleasant and safe.
For some, the word can be used as a pejorative term, but in fact it’s a word that is used in a positive and inclusive sense.
It describes something that is pleasant and comfortable, or it can be an object of curiosity or appreciation.
A cool person is someone who is good at things, and who is happy to spend time with their friends.
In a survey of more than 3,000 people conducted in 2012, the Oxford Dictionary of American Usage reported that ‘Cool people are people who are happy to be around friends and colleagues’ (OUP article source Oxford English English Corpus).
The term ‘cool factor’ has also been used as part of a larger meaning of ‘good at’.
It is used when a person is being helpful or helpful in helping someone else, and is used for people who know that they can do the same or better.
For the Oxford OED Dictionary, the definition of ‘coolity’ is ‘a quality of being helpful, helpful, or helpful’ (Article source OE).
‘Good at’ and ‘good person’ are both adjectives used in the same way.
A person is good if they can help others, and good at is used instead of good.
‘Cool is not a good thing’ may seem like a negative phrase to some, but ‘cool is a good word to have around for anyone who likes to learn or for people looking for something positive’ (The Atlantic article source The Atlantic).
A ‘cool person’ is someone that enjoys the company of others and a ‘good’ person is a person who is interested in learning and who has the ability to do so (Wikipedia).
‘It is important to distinguish between a cool person and a good person’ ( The Atlantic article).
A good person is the person that can be helpful to others, while a cool one is the one who can be the person who enjoys themselves or the environment in which they live.
