I know that some people out there would say that there are programs that could help students pay for college and help with study for classes but those programs are not always available for all students. These are the reason why I believe that not everyone, let alone high school graduates should go to college. Tuition cost over the years have continued to rise in cost, with the introduction of new technology. Some students would have to work a full time job in order to pay for their full course load. If a student has to work a full time job and go to school, either one could suffer from the overload of stress or lack of sleep.
Long ago, there have been massive arguments about whether or not community college should be free. Nowadays, a college education has become fundamental in today's society. Each year, education is becoming challenging in today's marketplace. Thus, many people, including students question whether community college tuition should be free given. I firmly believe free community college should be provided and financed by the U.S. government.
Do you ever wonder what college students fears might be? Do you ever wonder what is going through their mind? In the article “The Student Fear Factor” by Rebecca Cox, it explains many different factors that a college student might be going through. The article gives many point of views from other students and what their thoughts about college was.

People who are thinking of college would typically include parents who want to know if college is best for their child or children, high school students, adults looking to complete their schooling or even enhance it, and even people who have dropped out of school entirely. In order for Delbanco’s article to be well supported and robust, he would need to go over the cause for why people don’t think highly of college as a wise educational plan in life. He explains the basis of people not going to college, he says, “Some on the right say that pouring more public investment in higher education, in the form of enhanced subsides for individuals or institutions, is a bad idea.” This is important in an argumentative article to have a refutation; otherwise, the argument is weak and fails to support the claims that have been made by the writer. Introducing a counter argument in an argumentative article is an intelligent decision to do when writing; this provides insight on others thoughts that oppose the statement, which has been made by said person. In his refutation he also includes more information why people oppose college, he says, “Other thinkers, on the left, question whether the aspiration to go to college really makes sense for ‘low-income students who can least afford to spend money and years’ on such a risky venture, given their low graduation rates

The vast majority of students enrolled in a college campus are extremely unprepared for the environment. Many students do not begin preparing themselves for the college setting until they have completed high school; however, this decision may be harmful in the overall success of the individual. While early college preparation can cause burnout, physical or mental collapse due to overwork or stress, parents and administrators should encourage students to begin preparing for college ahead of time because preparation will result in students beging ready for the vigirous course work, allow students to be aware of the expectations prestigious universities anticipate, and introduce students to the wide array of opportunities that are available.
One of the major decisions that high school graduates face is the choice to attend college or not. Why do students decide not to attend college? For many it is due to economic factors, poor standardized test scores, previously dropped out of high school and received their GED.

The advantages to attending college outweigh the benefits of taking time off.

The guidance counselors had set up several different college meetings with me as a junior and senior to see if I had any ideas of what I wanted to do about college. These meetings consisted of useful facts and information on colleges, universities and majors I was interested in. Once I got to senior year I started to feel as if it was a lot. I actually started having doubts about attending college right after graduating. As the year continue I started doing applications for different colleges and universities.
As adults who are responsible for making sure we are put on the right path to succeed, it can be a very daunting task. According to New Haven Independent, “21.0 percent of kids in the Class of 2012 dropped out” (Bailey, Melissa) of our high school. With the intense efforts of making students go to college immediately after graduation, it is very evident that schools are pushed from above (aka the school system) to justify their existence and are forced to compete with graduation rates. These pressures are not about the students but simply just politics, or a way of redemption for New Haven Public Schools. However, the burden of requiring us to make a decision is still unreasonable.
