Ever wonder what’s the purpose of going to college? Once you graduate how will a sheet of paper help you survive in life? Well, let me tell you, there are a lot of benefits to going to college and getting an education.
Here are the TOP FOUR benefits of going to college…
Better Job Opportunities:
With a college degree you will have a variety of career opportunities and better chances of landing a spot in that field. If you only achieve a high school diploma, you can still get a job, but probably not the best. According to Answers.com, if you don’t have a college degree you will be working harder and longer, with less pay. So, my advice would be go to college, and attain the best career out there for you.
Get More Money:
If you have a college degree you get better career opportunities, with better careers you get more money. The better your career, the more benjamins you bring home in your pocket. Even if you have the same career as a less educated person you will get more money because you have a higher education. According to Eduguide.org, college graduates earn about one million dollars more in lifetime earnings as compared to a person with only a high school diploma. So, don’t worry about all the money you spend on an education in college, it’ll pay off in the future.
Being a college graduate, you also have a better life according to Benefitof.net. With going to college, studies have shown that you are in better health, exercise more, and smoke less. Don’t get me wrong you can still have good health, exercise, and not smoke at all, but college students have a better chance because of the type of environment. Being in a civilized environment helps to steer away from trouble, oppose to being in the streets around more violence and drugs. When you go to college it’ll change your mindset.
Improves Your Skills:
Depending on what college you attend, it might be diverse and you will meet many new people, this helps with your social skills. Going to college also helps with the way you communicate with people; you learn not everyone speaks improper English. You learn what to say and when to say it. Social relationships are key to a successful future aside from going to college because if you know someone and that someone knows someone, they might hook you up with a job and something beneficial for your future.
So what are you going to do? Yep, that’s what I thought…go to college!
