why go to college?

If you are uncertain about going to college or if you just need some reassurance that you're on the right track, here are a few reasons to go to college:

  • Every bit of education you get after high school increases the chances you'll earn good pay. Most college graduates earn a lot more money during their working years than people who stop their education after high school graduation.
  • Besides good pay, the more education you get the more likely it is you will always have a job. According to one estimate, by the year 2028 there will be 19 million more jobs for educated workers than there are qualified people to fill them.
  • Continuing education after high school is much more important for your generation than it was for your parents' generation. Today, most good jobs require more than a high school diploma. Businesses want to hire people who know how to think and solve problems.
  • Education beyond high school gives you a lot of other benefits, such as meeting new people, taking part in new opportunities to discover and explore your interests, and experiencing success.
