What are you looking to do at college with your vehicle? The answer here really will help you make the decision going forward.
Cheap Honda is a solid choice for getting to/from daily. Good gas mileage, cheap parts for repairs, etc. Cruise control is also a big advantage for the long drive.
MJ or Eagle are vehicles to do things with/enjoy while you are at college. If that’s what you are after then it’s an easy choice.
Also remember that college brings a whole new group of unknowns that you’ve likely not seen yet. This includes where and how you store your vehicle. Make sure you have a vehicle that you can park any place for days on end and not worry about how secure it is.
That said - I enjoyed my college experience with my MJ. I walked to campus each day and I had a garage to secure it in through the week. I drove it every weekend and had all of the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan as my playground. As a college kid with little budget, I paid at the pump to drive it 8 hours one way each time I went home. It was also not the most comfortable choice for a long drive. I was very confident with it as I had done plenty of work on it prior to college and while I lived with my folks during the summers. I did have some things that I needed to do at college and I made friends that I still have today from wrenching. Lots of good memories.
