CJ Woods Mr. Corbett University 101 Section 03 September 8, 2013 My reasons for college are probably just like everyone else’s. I went to college because I wanted a better life for myself. I wanted to find a job that I would not be living paycheck to paycheck like my parents have to. I mean, who really wants a life like that? 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.
I have future plans of becoming a counselor or a life coach, I plan to make the final decision on which one when I have had a chance to practice as an intern; That is how I think I will learn better which one is more suitable for me personally. I also chose to attend college because I want to set a good example for my children. It makes much more sense for them to see me going to college, rather than for them to just hear me tell them why I feel it is so important that they go. I understand that, by my choice to attend college, there will be obstacles and fears that I will need to overcome and work through, but my goals and strengths will help me through this. I chose Lackawanna College because I felt that the programs offered here would help as a starting point towards achieving my goal to further my education, and to eventually transfer to another college after getting a degree in Human Services at Lackawanna College.
There are many reasons and factors that helped with my decision to go back to college. A high interest in psychology, and a potentially better job in the future are my reasons. My plan of action is to take “baby steps” and go as far as I possibly can in CCRI’s program. I will then find a Psychology program at another school that will satisfy my goals, if necessary. There were prerequisites/factors to overcome before I could achieve my goal to attend and succeed in college and then find my dream job”.
What is College? College is a key to success in life. Why is college education such an important these days? In order to success in life with little or no struggles financially one has to go to college to get an education that will lead them later on to an Career of their choice. A two- or four- year college degree is becoming more and more important to unlocking doors to economic and educational opportunity in America today.
To get a higher education is perhaps crossing the biggest milestone of your life. A college education is a very valuable thing and everyone should get one, so that we can all be enlightened and help make our society a better place. A college is a place where people come together in an environment that helps nurture their educational curiosities. For example, a college student and a high school student have a lot of differences when it comes to doing stuff like work because a student from college can rationalize than a high school student.
I am in college to prepare for a career and not a job, my education is the difference between being happy with my work and working to live, as of now I am not fulfilling my duties as a student. I often ask myself why am I here, sometimes I ignore the question other times my answer varies from “to make your dad proud” or to “prove your mom wrong”. Neither of those answers is honest or is a product of consideration and deep thought. The actual reason why I’m here is because this is the only way I can get to where I want to be in life. I want to teach preschool and I am here to prepare and educate myself on what it takes to be an educator.
One of the main reasons I have chosen to ho back t school is my family and their well-being. I feel like if I go to school and get an education then I can take care of them the way I need to take care of them. I feel like going back to school will have many good advantages as well as some disadvantages . Some good things is that I will be furthering my education and in the world we live in it’s almost required. Another advantage is that many more job opportunities will come and I will have a better selection then I do now.
A College education means that my daughter will have a good example to follow. A college education also means that I can finally make my dreams come true and have a better quality of life. As I desire to return to the workforce and one day have my own business a degree will be necessary for me to succeed. (Nelson Mandela quote) Upon graduating from high school in 2000 it has been an ongoing struggle to get a job that fits my career path. Obtaining a college degree is important to me because it would enable me have many opportunities to provide a secure future for my family.
So, students who want to “work with their hands” and gain experience quicker can look into trade school where they would be taught specific skills geared towards their ideal job. Hands-on experience through trade school is a great option for those who already know what they want to do. However, for people who do not know what they want to do going to college will give one multiple opportunities to network. Networking is an important factor that is essential in building
A college education will greatly improve my career options and financial wellbeing. It will give me the knowledge and skills to be successful in my chosen career field. Even though I have continued to learn throughout my life experiences, a formal education will equip me with the ability to form better opinions and expand points of view in everyday life. Furthermore, education will help me to build on my work ethic and values to develop a more mature stable future. College education will provide a clear direction that will help motivate me to make better decisions in all aspects of my life.
