Why go to College?

The main reason that most people attend college is to prepare for a career. By gaining knowledge in a particular field of study, you can prepare yourself for a career that is more satisfying, more fulfilling and more enjoyable. With a college education, you are also more likely to have a career that pays well.

There are many other good reasons for attending college. Some people want the satisfaction of earning a degree or certificate. Others attend college for personal development or just for the enjoyment of learning. Some students start college without a clear vision of their goals. That is OK, too. Community college is a good place to explore your goals.

Whatever your reason for being here, it needs to be worthwhile to you. If you have a clear vision of a worthwhile goal, you are more likely to commit to doing whatever it takes to achieve that goal. Commitment and persistence are the keys to success in college.
