There might be a time where people ask you, “why are you in college” or “why to decide to go to college.” People might reply by saying that they want a degree, that they want a higher paying job, or they need that for a future career that they are pursuing. Those responses are the most typical reason of why people go to college. Sure you can say that having a degree means that a person can get a better job with better pay rather than working in the manual labor fields with minimum pay. A college degree is the fundamental stepping stone to the future, it lays the foundation of where to start. College is everything to me; I’m in college so I’m able to unlock more potential in myself, to be able to make my mother proud with everything that she has done and hopefully becoming the first.
Many people love going to college because they want to be succeed in life. Education makes people successful in life. People have different reasons for going to college such as they want to make money, more opportunities, make connections, build confidence, make their family proud, want to be a successful and love getting an education, these are some reasons why people go to college. There are three reasons why I decided to attend college.
Noted authors, Brandon Chambers, is quoted saying, “If you are going to fear anything fear success. Think about what you are doing and when you succeed what life you will have.” There are several different reasons why I could stay home, work and not go to college; I could go to work every day and make more money for the house, it’s easier, and I would be less stressed. Now, on the other hand there are many reasons why I should go to school; such as further my education, make my family proud, and make myself proud. I am attending college for several different reasons. One reason is to further my education. I hate feeling like I don’t know something, I like being the person everyone comes to for information. Also, because I want to
This is my first year in college and I'm currently an exploratory. At first, I had an idea of what path I want to take after high school. I didn't know what exactly I wanted to achieve, but I undoubtedly want to do something in a medical field. Human's body is quite fascinating to me, but after spending time volunteering at the hospital, taking medical-related classes, and dissecting, I was unable to picture myself in the scrub, working breathlessly in the frantic hospital hallway. I am clueless about what I what to pursue in the future, but I believe that the eighteen years old me still have a lot of potentials and opportunities. This is why I'm in Santa Fe, I deem that community college would be a better option for me to slowly explore and finding out about what I want to proceed in the future.
In the beginning of the term the class had a discussion about why we are attending college and why they choose the major we are in. Many of the students answer that because they wanted to gain knowledge but also other responded because without an education you cannot get a lot of money. In the article “Making college relevant” by Kate Zernike quoted that in a survey done in Los Angeles, California to 400,000 incoming freshmen in 1971 their answers were that only 37 percent went to college to get money and 73 percent to gain knowledge. The same survey was done in 2009 but the percentages flipped 78 percent wanted money and 48 prefered to gain knowledge. Our percentages were very similar to the 2009 ones. We are in a society where you are expected
Education is key. My parents have always taught me that whatever you learn stays with you for the rest of your life. College is my aspiration. I want to attend a four year university to maintain a better lifestyle. I love learning new things; it’s like an addiction and you just want to absorb more knowledge. I witness my parents arrive home everyday tired because all they desire is to give me a better life. They want me to succeed and I have just opened my eyes and realized life is harder than I thought. My parents want the best for me and I want the best for myself which means if I try my best I can achieve my goal into making it into a four year university and graduating.
Throughout my entire life--or, only as much of it as I can remember--my family struggled financially, as we still do. I had become so accustomed to my family’s penny-pinching tendencies that I would constantly compare prices whenever I went to the grocery store to see if I could find a cheaper price.
After four years of high school, there is only one goal I have in mind. That goal is to attend college. This is the next big step in my life. All the late nights I stayed up to complete school assignment was for this moment. All my hard work was has lead me to this point in life. College will open a whole new to me. A world where I can meet new people while working to improve my future. Why do I want to attend college though? Well I have three specific reasons for this decision.
I am in college because of several reasons. Neither of my parents went to college and they constantly remind me of how much they regret it. I would be the first person in my family to receive a college degree and that motivates me to continue my education. My dad is in the United State Air Force and he has transferred his Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits to me. Receiving the benefits gives me a large percentage off of my tuition and it also allows me to receive a check every month to help pay for housing. I have one goal for being in college and that is to finish. I have had many setbacks in my four years of college because of how many times I have transferred, but now all I can do is finish what I started.
I know exactly what I want to be become. I want to become one of the greats, and discover things that could change someone’s entire life. I do not want to go into medicine for the money, or even the praise that would come along with being titled a neurosurgeon. I have decided to pursue medicine because I know that it will continually challenge me and push me past my limits.
Education is very important to me and it is something that I want to continue with as I head into college. I am seeking funds that will allow me to progress my journey directed toward helping me have a brighter future. My accomplishments have led me to the person I am today and have shaped me for the better at church and school. One of my dreams is to become a nurse, and with this money, I will be able to attend the school I need in order to fulfill my goal.
In the eighth grade, I didn't really ever want to pay attention and to listen to a teacher who´s talking about atoms and molecular molecules. I was a teenage girl who was mostly focused on boys, clothes, and other stuff that would capture my attention. I didn't want to do math equations, I wanted to gossip about who was dating whom and when. I didn't want to study, I wanted to watch movies and tv shows. The only time I admired school was lunchtime because it was where my friends were and you didn´t have to do work.
Call me Missy but if you have to know my real name is Michelle. Of course, similar to all the other thousands of essays you’re going to read, they will be about why a student desires or strives for college. Well to be honest, there is no easy way to explain why someone craves to go to college. I am wishing to be different excluding all the other essays you’ve read.

Now that you understand what a typical day looks like for me in college, let me explain to you why certain people in my life would say that I don't have a life because I attend college to better myself .The reason people say I do not have an interesting life because I am currently enrolled in community college,but my response to their hurtful rhetoric ,is that they do not see the underlying reason on why I am attend college.The reason I decided to go to college to expand my mind more and explore new horizons and be able to learn form the best in best in my career field and apply it to my future career.If I did not attend the college I would not be able to expand my mind and expand and be able to break into my career field in the future.
Transferring colleges is a stressful and difficult decision. Some do it because it is too far away from home, too much work, or too costly. For me, it’s completely different. I am transferring because I want to take my academic studies, preparation for a career, and development as a person to the next level with a top academic institution. I also have the opportunity to move closer to my family in Wisconsin and cannot pass that up.
