College is not for everyone, it is primarily for people who are willing to go that extra mile studying and getting the help they need to make sure they get high grades. Many people do not have the determination to even study. So why would a student go to college and waste time knowing they are not willing to do the work? Next, students should not be forced to enroll in college after high school because some people may have different plans. Several students decide
With this in mind, without a college education makes it hard to compete for a high-paying job in the world that we live in today. A higher education comes with a price, and that price is high tuitions. Many high school graduates are discouraged from going to college because of their fear of going into debt like my brother. But a higher education is an investment that if done right, will pay off in the future like my sister. The growing economy makes not having a college education no longer an option to be taking lightly.
My primary goal is attending and finishing college. An education is the most valuable important thing for a person to have. Without a good higher education, a person doesn’t make as much money as they should in their career field. Success does not come easy or cheap, college requires a lot of dedication, effort, and money unless I receive a grant or a full scholarship. Which is just as hard as hitting the lottery.
Despite the benefits of a college education, such as a better starting pay in entry level jobs and some better opportunities to find world, these benefits are only individual and do not outweigh the price it takes to achieve them. College is too expensive to be paid for by every high school graduate because it throws students and their families into pools of debt and is not worth the money for those that do not even graduate. Attending college presents numerous risks and gambles, yet college is ultimately an ‘investment.’ Although it may not pay off right away, it will reward those with a degree financially in the future. Obama continued on to say that “higher education should not be a luxury,” but a crucial part to building a career and a future. (Obama).
“Why I Want To Go To College” Jimmy Dean once said “I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” There are many obstacles in the world that will lead you to a place where you wouldn’t want to be. These days without an education you can’t get nowhere in life. Furthering your education should be the most important thing that comes to your mind when you think about life after high school. Going to college is a big step in my life, more to say in anyone’s life. I think going to college will be a big step and major accomplishment in my life because it marks the start of a new beginning.
Why Do I Want My Diploma? Now days, it is extremely hard to move forward in life without obtaining a High school diploma or GED. I do not want, or plan to be, one of those regretful people who fall behind in life because they never dedicated the time to graduate. Also, getting my Diploma/GED is something I need to achieve if I ever want to get a decent job and build financial stability for myself and my family. Most importantly, I want to do things in my life that I can be proud of and know that I was a good role model for my children.
Once you graduate from high school there are ways to get money for college, but you cannot rely on student loans or grants, you are going to need to take money out of your own pocket and pay for college. You would not want to have to get a job after high school and wait to be able to attend college because of money issues, you might change your mind and not want to leave the job to further your education after that. Working a part time job during high school helps you knowing the meaning of earning something, so that you do not think that everything will be given to you. It also helps out with the meaning of responsibility. Now if you are not a student that academics come easy to you, I would say that the best thing to do would just stick with school and not have a job at all.
Without setting goals most people would not pursue their dreams because they see no reward in the end for having to go through some hard times. With this attitude, success for many would be out of reach, but with the idea of setting goals for self motivation, everyone can be successful with hard work. In my life I make sure to set goals and strive to achieve them but even though I may not reach all of them I can say to myself in the end that I have tried my hardest and have accomplished something along my journey. I believe I need this scholarship because it is a big step in achieving my goal of going to college and getting a career started in chemical engineering. With this scholarship that goal would start to become more of a reality because I would then have the financing for my college education and I would only have supply and apply myself to gain the education.
I decided to take college education because I know it is good for me, for my life and future. I have so many plans and dreams I would like to accomplish, professionally and personally and the very first step I have to take is my college education. Without a good education, the number of jobs I can get is very limited, and don’t present a lot of chances for me to succeed. I would like to have the opportunity to work in something I really like, because this way, my work will not be a heavy burden. People that enjoy doing what they like are happier; as I can see education is a precious gift.
College Failure It has always been believed that higher education is a key factor for success. Attending a college or university provides more opportunities for graduates, which are not as widespread to those who have not received a higher education. However, sometimes possessing a college diploma seems not to be enough for employers, who are more and more valuing the graduates’ job skills over their grades. According to Kathleen Parker’s article “Colleges are prepping students for failure”, colleges are not adequately preparing students for their future jobs. Thus, employers insist that students should increase their educational achievements.
