College can be summed up in many ways. It’s a time of growth, learning, time managing, and furthering your career. Many people will say that getting a degree today is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. But, is that necessarily true? Many would argue that it is, many would also argue that it isn’t, but truth be told it’s all about what you want for your life.
Of course, there are pros and cons to attending a University for higher education. Some of the pros are:
- Time Management
- Making Connections and New Friendships
- Resume Builder
- Improves decision making
- More Job Opportunities
- New Experiences
There are also cons to consider as well:
- Student Debt
- Time Consuming
- No Guarantee of Employment
There’s also a gray area, which consists of both attending and not attending college, which is:
- Earning Potential- There are many people who haven’t attended college and make much more than people with degrees.
- Job Opportunities- Technically College can help you open new doors, but, you can also reach out and make connections on your own.
- Success- is a big one. Your success, although is impressive with a college degree in hand, does not necessarily mean that you will be successful. Working hard and putting your full effort into anything you do is necessary in order to be successful.
So, going to college or not going to college has nothing to do with your success. You yourself have everything to do with your own success. If you feel college is the right step in achieving your dreams, then you should go for it. If college is not the next step for you, that is okay too, just make sure that you look at all your options and pursue what you want for your life, and I promise you won’t regret it.
