Go Back To School

During high school, many students begin to question the importance of a college education. Attending college provides opportunities for graduates which are not as widespread to those who have not received a higher education. The idea of generating income immediately after graduation is also appealing to many along with the fact of rising costs/tuition. I was one of those students that felt like I did not want to attend college right after high school. I totally believed that I needed some sort of ‘break’ from learning and wanted to jump right into my ‘adult’ life. Do as I want, no rules, just flourish in my perfect world with all of my 18 years of intense life experience(Insert sarcasm…lol)  I believe that a higher education may be one of the largest expenses you will ever encounter but the earning potential with a degree has become quite evident in today’s economy. It serves as the gateway to better options and success. Being included in lectures from experts in the top fields will encourage and stimulate new ideas, additional growth/development and will provide college graduates with an edge over those who have not experienced a higher education. The more connections which are collected during your college career, the more options you will have when you begin your job search. The reasoning does not begin and end only with the job aspect but in enhancing your capacity and sharpening skills. Although a college education can be pricy, do not let that discourage you from trying to obtain your degree. While the cost rises, so are the amount of available local and federal financial aid options. It is imperative to make a solid list and calculate so that you do not make the error of over-borrowing when it comes to student loans. You want to make sure that you have the funds needed to complete a degree program and also keep in mind that when you start a specific course, try your best to see it through. Withdrawing may incur financial penalties and place you in a bind. Do the research beforehand so that you will be aware, this will mean speaking with a counselor and asking the questions so you can make a more accurate decision in your status(Full/Part time). I believe that the best thing a student can do is ask a question about any or all of your options. Most educators, instructors, counselors etc will find it refreshing to assist an inquiring mind. For many, this is why they entered into the education profession. The global economy is becoming increasingly more competitive and in order to give yourself the best chance for a quality, well-paying and suitable career, you first need to understand the importance of a higher education.
