Most of us have heard the statement "college is not for everyone." But once I got thinking about it, I have to admit that it's probably a pretty darn good idea to get a college degree.

Going to college is like eating your veggies. Yeah, it may not always be the most fun or exciting thing to do. But in the end, it will be well worth it and you may regret it if you don't go.

First off, by just having a college degree, you are automatically more likely to do well in life. You will have more knowledge of the world and how things work, and employers will take you more seriously compared to those who do not have a degree. While some jobs may not require a degree, it's very likely that the person hired for the job will have one (especially in today's job market where many college graduates are looking).

Second, college doesn't have to be the world's biggest pain or a nightmare. Lucky for us we like in a society that allows us to choose. You can choose where to go to college and you can choose what you want to major in. If you find something that's fun and/or interesting, the academic part can be something you enjoy. A lot of people also make new life-long friends while they're at college. Join a group or organization if you find that you're having a hard time meeting people.

Third, the fact that college is expensive doesn't have a be a deal breaker. Many students can go to college for free if they qualify for financial aid. Others can apply for student loans, and if all else fails, you can work before and/or during college.

Overall, going to college is a pretty good idea. Even if you don't think you'll need a college degree for the type of work you want to do or if you're not thrilled about more school work, it's better to be safe than sorry. Going to college will only take a few years and it can help you during the many years of your future.

you'll need a college degree for the type of work you want to do or if you're not thrilled about more school work, it's better to be safe than sorry. Going to college will only take a few years and it can help you during the many years of your future. Or you may buy a degree to fulfill your need in the way of competition.
