Increase Job Opportunities

Pursing a college degree takes initiative, determination, and self-discipline. Each of these qualities are sought after by employers in a variety of positions across many different fields. Having a college degree significantly increases your marketability as a candidate for job opportunities. High school graduates may find entry-level positions in certain fields that do not require specialized skills but as a college graduate you will have been exposed to critical thinking, analysis, and different ways of understanding that will make it easier to step into a higher paying entry-level position and prepare you for greater opportunity.

Open Your Eyes to the World

As you venture through college, you will encounter challenges and create new ways of thinking. You will build your knowledge, investigate your interests, discover new passions, and increase your understanding of how the world around you works. Your critical thinking skills and ability to communicate are a primary focus in college. The refinement of these skills will help you better understand and interact with the world we live in today.

Life a Happier and Healthier Life

Yes, you will increase your opportunity and better understand the world, but more importantly, you will live a happier and healthier life! With a college degree comes better problem-solving skills. Developed problem-solving skills help you make informed decisions about how to stay healthy, take care of stressful problems, and continue to learn throughout life. Education has the simple benefit of helping create knowledgeable decision makers and critical thinkers.

So as you sit down and think about what you are going to do to better your life in 2016, think about college.
