Hey Karen, I meant full time tertiary education students.
It looks like your college must have been pretty grim. One of mates did a photography degree, back in the day, and his course included not only access to stuff like fully equiped darkrooms, large format cameras and a comely student body more than willing to act as models, but also 'field trips' all over the UK and Europe.
Nowadays, at the very least you have access to the model pool and Photoshop at an affordable price, whereas normal amateurs have to beg acquaintances to pose and have to shell out 6 times as much for what is considered to be a basic tool - more than I have lying around, I can tell you.
So not all photography students are created equal, but they are a lot more equal than the rest of us
