Why Go to College?
More Opportunities. Attending
college opens doors to more opportunities, learning more skills,
and higher paying jobs. A degree puts you in the running for jobs
where as others without a degree may be overlooked. As well as
heading you off on a career path, college enriches your cultural
and social opportunities. You will become a well rounded individual
through academics, exposure to diversity and culture, and real-life
situations. This will enable you to interact well with others in a
variety of circumstances.
More Income. It has been proven that those who
obtain a Bachelors Degree live healthier -longer lives, have higher
employment rates, make more money, have more confidence, and have
more opportunities made available to them. Note: The average person
with a college degree will make a million dollars more than one
without a degree during the course of a lifetime. (Information
