I know I did not want that, and that is why I wanted to go to college, even more than is the main reason why I wanted to go to college. Another reason was I wanted to get a better education other than just a High school Diploma. Not many places would take many serious if they just had a High school Diploma. My final reason for wanting to go to college was that I wanted that college experience. I was fortune enough to get into college, so why not take advantage of it, and get the real college experience, since I did not really have that, High school Experience, this was my chance, to make up for it.
Expressions such as “I can’t wait to quit,” “I wish I had a better job,” and “I don’t want to go to work,” are expressions spoken by nearly every person at some point in his or her lifetime. Individuals expressing these feelings can avoid these emotions by making the right choices in their secondary and post-secondary education. In today’s economy having a quality college education could mean the difference between getting a job versus having a career. Having a job can be defined as simply working to survive. Having a career can be defined as working in a field where the worker loves what they do and he or she is benefitting in ways such as mentally, financially or spiritually.
A good education by the right institution would open the window of opportunity by guiding me in the right profession to chase the better companies to apply for a job with a focused clear mind. With a good college teaching me it could help me understand diversity and a multitude of cultures, helping me build a better network circle of people which could be important in having a future career. Being more educated with such a larger way of thinking could help me be a more independent person also a self-starter instead of a follower. Another quote that someone told me was by Oscar Wilde (Berdichevsky) “You can never be over dressed or over educated.” You can never be over educated to me means that you can always add to your education. If you have an Associates degree you can always go to Bachelors degree and even higher.
In Barbara Ehrenreich’s article she theorizes that, “…Employers prefer college grads because they see a college degree chiefly as mark of one’s ability to obey and conform.” This statement in which Ehrenreich gives her theory on how employers think is outrageous. I go to college because I want to start a good foundation that will help benefit my career. Students should want to go to college to help their futures, not to just get a job. My second reason for disagreeing mostly with Ehrenreich’s article of college being a scam is college should create students passion for what students want to do. In Ehrenreich’s article she states, “…Most of what you need to know you’re going to learn on the job anyway.” I think this example of Ehrenreich’s opinion from her article is just being used to sway the audience to side with her.
Since this was the case, workers only needed to know simple tasks to get the job done. In today’s world, these simple tasks are now replaced by machines, which require people to complete more sophisticated tasks, only obtainable with a college education. A good job is hard to come by today, but a college degree can make finding one easier. The main reason why I am attending college is to obtain a bachelor’s degree, but also to learn independence, and develop a network of friends and contacts. The main reason why I am attending college is to obtain my bachelor’s degree.
Second, it will offer motivation to my kids. Not only will the degree provide me with a better position to take part in my children’s classrooms assignments at school, I will similarly be helpful in the life choices they will want to pursue being a role model for them. Attempting to get a college education after marriage with children may also be challenging and may require me to put off those decisions to raise a family. However, currently with the enormously fast progress in technology, attaining an education will be made considerably easy. Patty Murray noted "A good education means learning to read, write and most importantly learn how to learn so that you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up”(Vavrus, 2002).
Introduction “Why College Education is important to me?” Most people already know that going to get a College Education is very important; it opens many doors and provides many advantages and opportunities. Thinking about the compromise myself to going to college, maybe is not easy for me or for everyone, but it is even harder to take the determination to set a new goal for our life. First, start with a self-motivation and keeping in mind what is the best and right decision for my future. Advancing myself and obtaining an education, allows me not to be an ignorant and not get advantaged by evil people’s manipulation. One of the most important and obvious reasons to earn a College Degree is to increase my earning potential and better quality life for me and my family.
It wasn’t until I went thru my Divorce that I started to really think about the importance of college and thoroughly analyze my life and it was thru that experience that made me realize that for once, I needed to make myself and my needs a top priority. It took inquiring about employment for several jobs to really grasp the fact that
A college education is important to me because I can use that degree to get a job that I like and want, obtain a degree, and I will be able to improve and learn more then what I already know. * With a college education, I can apply and get the job that I have been wanting for a long time. There are many reasons that people looking for certain jobs don’t get them. It is because their resume may show that they have the experience that is being requested, however the person does not have the educational background to support that position. So for me to get a college education and be able to get my degree will open all kinds of doors for me.
Of course I want to learn for a job but to also be able to learn how the world works around me. Everyday things are happening in our government or cities and are left unnoticed and I hope while being in college I’m able to know why certain things are happening. So instead of just being in the dark behind important decisions I can become socially aware of everything. This in return will also help me to be able to think for myself and think more critically on decisions I’ll chose to make in the future for myself. Another thing I’m sort of forced to learn while being in school is independence.
