What are possible meanings for dreams of colleges?
Being back in college is a frequent dream theme for people who have already graduated, but you don’t have to have attended college to dream about it. The symbolism is often related to learning. You feel challenged by something or recognize a gap in your knowledge that needs to be filled. You are learning something new and feel challenged intellectually.
Consider what you learn, or need to learn, about yourself and life. Life is a continual process of adjustment and assimilation. You take in new information, have new experiences, and decide how things fit into the big picture of who you are. A college setting is a natural place in a dream to tell stories about what you’re learning about yourself and your life.
College is supposed to be preparation for adult life, specifically for occupation or profession. When situations are encountered for which you feel unprepared, it’s common to dream about being in college and unprepared for an exam, or needing classes to graduate. Graduation in the larger sense means “ready for the challenges that come next.” See: Campuses
Dreaming that you can’t find the classroom where you belong can indicate you don’t know where to get the knowledge, experience, or information you need to meet a challenge. Think beyond professional or work challenges to consider life challenges, personal challenges, social challenges, and relationship challenges.
Getting through college is comparable to climbing a mountain in the metaphorical sense. Many steps have to be taken and obstacles overcome. Personal and intellectual growth is required, as well as planning and organization. See: Climbing
You can dream about being in college if you face other sorts of mountains to climb, such as a big project at work or a big challenge at home. The setting can be used to describe situations that require strategy, skills, talent, and ability.
A college setting can be used to express feelings about missing college life, or missing the opportunity to attend college. Where would you be now?
Time in college is associated with freedom. For many people it’s the first chance they have to make their own decisions and set their own agendas. It’s where new friendships are made and high school reputations are left behind, giving fresh opportunity to reshape yourself and your image. If you missed that sort of opportunity, you might dream about college as a way of wishing that you’d had it, or that it would come again.
A college setting can be used to express feelings about meeting requirements and being prepared. We are told by teachers, counselors, and parents that college will get us what we want as adults. But what if you do everything right, get your degree, and it doesn’t lead you to where you want to be? What if you get into the work world and find out it wasn’t what you expected, that the way to get ahead has little to do with what you prepared for, or the occupation you chose does not lead to the adult life you want? You might then dream about college to think back on the roots of what led you to where you are now.
In a more general sense, dreaming about college can be a way of saying that you’re thinking about your life, or that you’re moving on from that time of life. You wake up one day and realize you’re no longer a young adult with wide-open possibilities.
Along the same lines, college is sometimes thought of as a step that leads to marriage and family life. You might dream about college as part of planning for your adult life, or as a way of looking back on the decisions you made and experiences you had that shape your adult life.
Of course, if you are too young to be in college and dream about it, it can be a way of looking ahead and planning your future. It can relate to the expectations and hopes you have for what that time of life will be like, or thinking about what you want to do with yourself, or even wishing for freedom and opportunity.
College can mean “informed opinion.” This use of the symbolism often plays out without actually showing a campus or college. Instead, college is referred to, such as through a professor or letter.
The symbolism can be based on the type of college. For example, a dream about attending a business college can be a general way of saying “taking care of business.” A law college can in some way tie in with subjects related to law, and law in the general sense means authority and rules.
Types of colleges include junior college and community college, which is a beginner step to getting a college education. A college dream can be a way of saying you’re taking remedial steps or going in the right direction. On the other hand, Harvard Medical School can symbolize prestige and preparation for tackling the biggest challenges.

Half a year ago, I died in a car wreck. After being resuscitated, I had an unconscious dream.
So, about half a year ago, I was in a technically fatal car accident. I was resuscitated by the paramedics but I eventually woke up in the ER while getting stitched up. While I was asleep I had a weird dream.
So when I got into my wreck, I was immediately knocked out cold. I dont remember the wreck at all. I had a "dream" where I had also gotten into a wreck but it wasn't bad in my dream. In my dream I also remember walking around my wrecked car and picking up some items that had fallen out. I also put my front bumper in the backseat. As I got back in my car, I woke up in the hospital.
The weird part is, thats obviously never happened.. it was all a dream. I broke my leg and had to get the jaws of life to get out. There wasn't any way I was walking. But I was knocked out immediately so there's no way I even knew I got into a car wreck.
Also, those particular items I was putting in my car (a charger, some clothes, my gym bag, and one of my college books) and my front bumper, were placed in my car how I out them in my dream, but it was done by whoever cleaned up my car wreck and towed my completely totaled car.
I've tried finding answers, but I usually end up with nothing.

Had a strange, but what I think is a meaningful dream relevant to my life last night
So last night, really the morning actually considering I stayed up until 6 am since I was playing a game with my buddy until then, I had a pretty interesting dream. Most of the time when I dream they’re so bizarre and make absolutely no sense whatsoever, but this one was different... I only remember bits and pieces, but something that’s been on mind since I woke up was this... Well before I get into it’s description let me give you a general background of where I am now. I’ve been out of high school for 4 years now, on my way to finishing my degree in forensic chemistry. I’ve kinda picked up vaping now recently in the last couple of months or so. Let me tell you how this relates to my dream. So I dreamt I was back at my high school, which by the way I absolutely dreaded and was one of the worst and darkest times of my life and I’ve never been more happy than to be out of there, but in it I was in one of the hallways and along with me was a bunch of old teachers as well as my mother as she worked at the High-school as the cashier for the cafeteria. I can’t quite remember who was all there exactly except one teacher in particular. My favorite teacher in fact, my global social studies teacher and for some strange reason I was on stilts or something that made me substantially taller than everyone in the hallway. Also keep in mind, I’m a very short guy in real life, only 5’3”. I went over to him and asked him how he’s doing and it’s been a while all the formalities. After that I give him quite a weak handshake when usually I give pretty firm handshakes in real life. Also, I was carrying a vape (a Hyde) but it was unusually very long and extended to almost the floor in a banana like shape. My mother tells me that’s a bad habit and I need to stop. That’s really all I can mostly remember. One last thing, (this is in real life and actually happened now) me and my old buddies from high school, one who’s now my roommate were talking about high school and they mentioned how much they miss it and loved it but I got annoyed hearing that so I left the room considering it was a bad memory for me, but we did mention my favorite teacher and I found out he was actually a big party guy almost like a college kid which I had no idea until then. He’s a pretty young guy for a teacher so it makes sense. Anyways, does anyone who’s a professional therapist or psychologist or anyone in general that ha thoughts on this matter know what this dream could have possibly meant or decipher about me or my life whether it’s of the past or present?
So last night, really the morning actually considering I stayed up until 6 am since I was playing a game with my buddy until then, I had a pretty interesting...

Had a dream that Billie Ellish was hypnotizing people by her songs and some seeds to do bad things...
I don’t know where to begin, I would assume it was a class because some of my classmates from my college were there and some characters from some songs that I watch and some from movies.
A classmate of mine was against something like she usually is in real life, this time it was Billie Ellish(I don’t listen to her music so idk why she’s the subject of the dream). She was talking about a conspiracy theory that Billie is a satanist while we were all on computers. Then she ends up leaving with my other classmates, the outside of this place looks our shopping mall.
I stay back for some reason and talk to one of the characters(I forgot who they were), but then people start running in panicking that Billie has come and is making people eat these seeds and people are turning evil.
I don’t believe it until it happens to the character I was talking to, then Billie comes into the room like she’s floating and shit. She starts spouting out her lyrics and making people eat seeds. For some reason, the two who starred in white chicks were there and telling me that Billie is going to attack my classmate(the one I mentioned earlier).
I somehow escape her turning me evil, but now there’s a flashback almost when Billie was a kid and her father who looks like dad from family matters, she apparently changed her brother’s name into Billie. The flashback ends and she turns her dad evil and his mission is to attack her brother.
The scene changes and it’s a Meijer’s/Target’s, I’m suddenly one who is possessed by her evil powers and have a cart. I see Spongebob and Mr. Krabs, they have carts too and are racing to get somewhere and are possessed. I’m one of Billie’s minions now and are racing to attack my classmate. Then I wake up.
I don’t know where to begin, I would assume it was a class because some of my classmates from my college were there and some characters from some songs that I...

Next morning, we were in bed and I told him that I had this dream and described it to him...He looked at me with a face as he had just seeing a ghost and said “ last night, I had a dream that I was back in college, partying at a bar, flirting and drinking with a girl I used to like and she was a short haired brunette”
