If you can transition well to a college environment right out of high school, then that might be the path for you. I believe continued education is the best. Upon graduating high school, students are faced with reality of attending college right away or waiting to try and find themselves in the real world. Those who are not academically nor financially prepared to attend college right after high school will most likely take a break. Taking long breaks from education can distract one and may lead to taking more than one year of a break.
Is the interest in school present? Does the job the student wants require a degree? These are some of the many questions people ask when deciding where or if they should go to college. It is a depressing thought because college no longer the only option for higher education, but a business. A four year college is not for everyone.There are many jobs that do need a valid college degree, doctors being the first-rate example.
Getting a college degree is considered as a must. However, more and more students are now opting to join trade schools instead of colleges after their schooling. It is increasingly being considered as a better option than college. This is partly due to high costs of college education these days as well as the students wanting to learn more and better than they can in colleges. College education is lengthy and a bachelor’s degree usually takes four years to complete.
Hierarchy depends on what college you choose to attend as well as your major. Going straight into a four year university after high school will grant you the satisfaction of achieve a milestone rather than pursuing a community college. Community colleges are seen as a secondary high school for those that did not score proficient enough to join a university. Although many might see community college as an average school, but it gives you the ability to choose your major without being rushed. According to an article on Borderzine, it states “On average, college students change their major at least three times over the course of their
What's more, your degree or certificate can act as a springboard, providing your career upward mobility.” (http://www.aie.org/) .When you go to college you gain knowledge and things you must need in life. You are able to meet new people and learn from others as well. It says “Plus, college graduates have less chance of losing their jobs. In 2009, there were 9.7 million unemployed high school graduates, compared with 5.2 million college graduates without jobs.” (http://www.greatschools.org/). This shows that not only will you be able to get a job but you will be able to keep it.
There are many benefits to staying all 4 years in college. In this essay I will be talking about the importance of staying all 4 years in college. I will be giving three main reasons why you should do that. One reason why I think athletes should stay all 4 years in college is because college degree is more important than millions of dollars.According to espn it says, “I must point out that a college diploma is more important than ever for those who sign a contract for big dollars.” This shows that any type of diploma is more important than some contract that you get for signing with a team. The money you get can't even help with lifetime security for superstar performers.
My experiences while serving in the military were amazing; however, I don’t feel that everyone should have to make such a sacrifice just to get a college education, which is required by most jobs if you intend on obtaining a decent salary and a stable career. Many students must take out a student loans and depend on financial aid or scholarships to help them pay for their education and that ends up haunting them financially long after they graduate and start their careers. It’s a hefty price to pay for improving yourself. I believe the government granting two years of free college to students would aid students, while they’re on this journey of self-improvement, by decreasing or eliminating the amount of debt acquired; but also, by opening doors for the students who would never be afforded the opportunity due to they’re financial circumstances. I believe that the environment created from the two years of free schooling would give each student the adequate time needed to determine what occupational field is desired, and enjoy college without the stress of financial hardship.
Opportunity cost for attending a four-year college (full-time) can vary and the decision can be based on whether or not the outcome causes a deeper debt or higher income compared to people who chose to start a career without further education. Some consider losing four years of salary while getting your degree and hope to earn more when your career officially starts. Examples of expenses when attending a four-year college: 1. Added tuition (not covered by scholarships and grants) can accumulate as well as housing, books, food and travel expenses. 2.
Fast Forwarding to today, I realize the importance of life and how quickly something can go wrong. I now plan on attending college with the hopes of becoming even more inspired to help people everyday. I am not the only one embarking on this college adventure, but my brother is too. Furthermore, this scholarship would help benefit my family’s financial situation because my brother and I will both being starting our freshman year of college this fall. My parents will be faced with a huge financial burden because they will be putting two children through college.
As my Freshman year begins, I am starting to realize how important certain things are in my life. Freshman year is full of distractions that could lead to many bad things, such as putting popularity and friends before grades and education. Many people are unaware of how easily this can happen, and before they know it, they are in jeopardy of not graduating to go on to college. However, It is important to also have a life outside of grades, and to get involved at school. I plan on accomplishing three different goals by the end of freshman year and high school in general.
College is Worth the Cost College is the next higher level of education after high school. Many students go to college to get a bachelor’s degree for his or her major, and some students go farther than that to get a masters or a doctorates’ degree. The argument between people in today’s society is whether college is worth the cost. College is worth the cost students pay because people, who attend college get better jobs, make more money, and college improves his or her worth ethics and character. When students attend college at least four years they leave with a bachelor’s degree in his or her major.
Debt is another thing I would not want to have to worry about for many years after i’m finished college. Sure, by then you may have your “dream” job and you’ll be making vast amounts of cash but there will still be the stress of debt from college weighing down on your shoulders. Honestly, if my future after high school doesn’t turn out like I want it to then my best bet would be to attend a community college. This isn’t really a terrible thing though considering many of the same opportunities are still granted to you for your future job or career

Clayton – you deciding to go to college is the same reason I decided to go. I do well at the job I am at, but I am limited as to how far I can move up. Getting my degree will help me find something else in a different field and make more money. The short story “Everyday Use” reminds me of my mother because she did not go to school passed eighth grade. This did not keep her from going after what she wanted and it made her push me, and my two siblings to graduate high school.
From the time we start our careers as students in school, we are told that in order to gains success in life we must attend college. That after high school, college is no doubt the next step we should be taking. Yet, for most students that are not wealthy this goal is almost unattainable. If the majority of students can’t afford tuition, then why is the tuition rate so high? Its certainly not an accident.
