Should I Go to College?

Before one can even think about how to pay for college or what classes to take, a person would need to decide if they even should pursue college at all. With tuition costs rising, some people wonder if it is really worth the money and time to go to college. To top it off, there are some who finish college and end up doing something totally different then their intended major. Therefore there are quite a few that have decided to skip college completely and face the “real world” straight on. Are these people at a less advantage than those that go to a four year university?  Is there other alternatives to a four year university that can give the same results? If one decides to go to a four year college, what can they do to make sure they don’t waste time or money?

To answer the first question, maybe not. There are some people have been successful without graduating from a college. Some learned on location, others may have started their own business. Whatever the case is, just because you graduate from a four year college doesn’t mean that you automatically get a job. But certain jobs do require that a person have some sort of degree. It just depends on what you would like to do or what job you would like to obtain.

Is there other alternatives to a four year university that can give the same results? Maybe not the same results, but some different results. Do you know another language? Some have been able to become translators. Do you have some sort of talent or skill? Some people are artistic, music oriented, or talented in sports which helped them obtain their desired career. There are also many online colleges or vocational schools that one can attend that will deal directly with what they would want to do. Also it is common that there is a nearby community college that can offer good education at a more affordable price.

Still want to go to a traditional College? Well there still are ways to make sure that you don’t drown  in debt before you can start in the work force. Have a goal, be organized, and stay motivated. Don’t invest in an education that you don’t want. Not having a goal in mind is like driving to an unknown destination, you waste time and money that could be used to actually get somewhere.

So in the end, the choice of whether or not to go to college is left up to you. Keep in mind that a college degree alone doesn’t pay the rent, but dedication and determination will. If you decide to go to a traditional college, make use of your education! The harder you work, the better the results.

Do you have any questions about college that you would like answered? Would you like a whole article dedicated to one or more of the questions above? Please leave a comment below with your thoughts.
