2013 Salaries

People who go to college open up their choices for jobs. Many jobs these days require a college degree. Plus, college graduates have less chance of losing their jobs. In 2009, there were 9.7 million unemployed high school graduates, compared with 5.2 million college graduates without jobs.
Employers value employees who can:
•work equally well either alone or as part of a team,

•think about and make decisions about complex situations, and

•suggest helpful solutions to both company and customer problems.

A good college degree program can help with all of these skills, which add up to a valuable skill set known as resourcefulness
This subject pertains to all the other in the sense that all the goods that come with a college education are opportunities.
For example you have the opportunity to make more money than someone who just has a high school education.
Professional organizations are significant assets as well. Many have chapters for college students to join and membership fees are fairly minimal. Joining one of these organizations gives you access to a vast network of connections.
Take advantage of on-campus organizations related to your intended field. From clubs to fraternities, there will definitely be something for you to get involved with to make connections – both with professionals and with other students in your major
a recent study shows, those who have a bachelors degree or higher live about 9 years longer than those without
studies show college graduates are healthier
people with just a high school diploma are twice as likely to be poorer in health
college graduates are less likely to divorce
People with more education have better access to health care.
Having a college education leads to more confidence.
People between the ages of 24-65 are more likely to be smokers if they do not have a college education.(31%)
Children have lower chances of being obese if there parents have a bachelors degree or higher.
It opens students to personal discovery: College can prepare students for what is to come in their lives so that they can have knowledge, understanding, as well as critical skills to meet challenges. College is a time for personal discovery. Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses can put you steps above the others. Utilizing your strengths to become more skilled at various things is extremely important. Once you learn a skill no one can take it from you.
If you go to college, your grandchildren will be more likely to go too: 71 percent of students with at least one parents who has a bachelor's degree apply to college themselves. Only 26 percent of first generation students ( those with no parent who went beyond high school) apply to college.
