Initially I disagreed with you. So much of the college experience in CS is competing with friends and classmates. Learning from each other, sharing what you know and learning from them. Yet with the internet, you can now do that. maybe not as well. But it can be done.
Also, college forced me to learn subjects I normally wouldn't have. Database design, AI, etc. It's more than just a piece of paper.
