    Default Opinion of/Opinion on ?

    I had a question...when using a sentence like this
    "Zinsser's opinion of/on college life today"

    Would you use opinion on college life or opinion of college life...

    I know for most topics you use On, but wouldn't the use of 'Of' be appropriate?

    Thank you.

    'Of'can be used, but it depends on how detailed the opinion is.
