    Dear native English speakers,
    would both sentences be used with the same meaning?
    (a) She was impressed by “universal design” when she was in college.
    (b) She was impressed by “universal design” in college.

    Yes. (a) is more specific but (b) would usually be taken to mean the same thing.
