Why consider college?
A college degree means greater opportunity and choices. The knowledge and skills you gain can be used for the rest of your life.
A college education will increase a person's ability to understand developments in academia and in society, think abstractly and critically, express thoughts clearly in speech and in writing, and make wise decisions. These skills are useful both on and off the job.
The world is changing rapidly. Many jobs rely on new technology and already require more brain power than muscle power. In a person’s working life, more and more jobs will require education beyond high school. A college education will increase the number and variety of jobs from which a person can choose.
A college degree is synonymous with higher income, a better standard of living and a more satisfying job.
