Why College?

What do you truly want to do after you graduate from high school?

You've probably been asked that question more times than you can count. And whatever your answer may be, you're going to need a plan. And that plan may include college.

But how do you know if college is really the best choice? After all, it's going to take time and money. But college could also provide you with opportunities you may never have thought of. Whether exploring a new subject, meeting new friends or cheering on a new sports team — college can be a great time to figure out who you are and where you want to go.

In the classroom, you'll get to study subjects you find interesting and that could turn into a career for you. And with a college degree, you'll likely earn much more than you would have without one. Plus, you'll get to work on group projects that will teach you how to truly work as a team and learn from other people — some of whom may even become lifelong friends.

But college is about much more than just learning in the classroom. There's a world of other opportunities just waiting for you — student clubs, shows, performances, study abroad, internships and so much more.

So why college? Because you'll walk away with a degree and experiences that will help you get where you want to go.
