My ideal sentence is:
My college years represent a __________ journey through which I hope to attain plentiful wisdom about the world.
One candidate is epistemic. Thus,
My college years represent an epistemic journey through which I hope to attain plentiful wisdom about the world.
But this doesn't hit quite right because the purpose of my journey is not about understanding the nature of knowledge (which the field of epistemology is focused on), but to simply attain knowledge. Hence, epistemic seems too academic.
Is there a better word for this?
