One of the benefits of attending college later in life is having the life experience to know myself better than someone just graduating high school.

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
Growing up, school was not a major factor in my life. I come from a hard-working, middle-class military family. My mother, a Filipino immigrant, was a homemaker. My father was a 21-year United States Marine veteran. They were my first impression of what I thought my future would be. Being the youngest of four children, I was expected to fall in line behind my siblings when it came to education. I was never pushed to excel in my studies, so I did just enough to get by. As I watched friends escape the grasp of a military town and ascend to their respective colleges, I was left wondering what was next for me. I attended my local community college for a brief period of time. I treated college no different than high school. I
During my years of service, I’ve received extensive training but it lacked opportunity and unfortunately not instantly adaptable to the civilian world. College was put on the back burner during my military career because I enjoyed being a Soldier and I wanted to be the best at what I did. Now that I have kids of my own in college and my own life experiences, I have come to understand the value of a higher education that my younger, less experienced self never understood. While pursuing my associate’s degree, I had always been the older and more experienced student than my peers, which has helped me keep things in perspective. I’ve encountered students who would complain about their school workload or teacher and it sadden me that young people today had no idea how fortunate they really are. As a Soldier, I have been in situations significantly more stressful than sitting in on a lecture, or passing exams and my deployments have helped me to fully appreciate the opportunities bestowed upon me and to welcome all challenges that come with it. My passion is to one day be a motivating teacher who can share the history I’ve lived, the lessons I’ve learned and the value of a great education if you work
College is a chance to be free and is a bridge between the real world and school. I’m an adult and expected to behave as such; I make my own choices where I have to decide what is important to me. I have an opportunity to learn how the world works, to explore the limitless possibilities and a chance to admire how vast knowledge can be. College will change my life in the way that I can develop life skills outside academics, to be fully
To begin with, my first reason regarding why college is worth attending are that college graduates earn more money high school graduates . In a video that our teacher, Mr. Thoma provided us stated that, “College graduates make $22,000 a year more
Growing up I didn't care much about going to college if I made out of high school I was fine. Now attending college and learning more and more makes me appreciate how important education is to me. School is very timely and precise everything is done differently. Little mistakes you make can mean a big deduction off your grade.
I wanted to return to college because I wanted a better life for myself. I have been in a slump the last 3 years due to increasing anxiety. For a while it consumed my daily life, but slowly I’m starting to enjoy the things and people I love. Attending the open house and hearing how accommodating the school was, it made me feel extremely confident and comfortable to achieve my goals. More personal one-on-one teaching is something
Many students decide to go to college to obtain a higher education with the expectation that it will prepare them for the work force in a field that interests now. However, most career opportunities do not expect the newly college graduate to know much of anything. The true purpose of a college education revolves around creating a well-rounded person and figuring out your purpose in life. According to Michelle Singletary of The Washington Post, “My daughter, a junior in high school, wants to be an early elementary school teacher. She gets outstanding grades in math and science, but she doesn’t have a passion for those fields. But we talked about her career choice and had her think it through and consider other options before we all agreed she’s got a gift for teaching.” (Singletary). While Singletary’s daughter may not end up becoming a teacher, this is the point of going to college.
To begin, one good thing about college is it makes you want your goals more. By this I mean, the hard work that you put into college becomes drive to make you complete your goal. In other words, college is like a videogame and your goal is the princess. The harder you work on the levels to get to the princess the more you want her. So in other words. One example of this is my mother, when I was younger my mom decided to go back to college.
