In a class, if you declare a method as static, you need not instantiate the class to be able to use the method. So , in your program, the method change() is being called directly by qualifying it with the class name.

You can read more in this link.

What bala is saying,

because not only change(), but also college, are static, they are class methods/variables rather than instance (object) methods/variables.

That means "college" will be changed for the entire class, not just for a single instance (object).
