quicko: colleges

The concept of "college" is very different in Australia and America. Australian colleges are not nearly of the same caliber as universities and not do grant bachelor's degrees. For example, the school I work at as an ESL teacher is called a "college." Thus, many American colleges, like Calvin, for example, would be considered universities here.

Quite so. Same here in B.C. I've found that it is much less confusing if I speak of attending university rather than saying Calvin College.
