Why You Should Go To College

Life, Success

I often go back and forth with myself on the debate of whether college is living up to the promise.

And while I still have mixed feelings, I must admit there is tremendous value in being able to call yourself a “college student.”

That value comes in the form of help and open doors that would otherwise be hard to come by.

The label of “student” enables you to take advantage of the world’s innate desire to empower and uplift the future generation.

You often hear, “the kids are our future.”

But what you don’t often hear about is how this mindset enables the youth to create and take advantage of hard-to-come-by opportunities.

It has created a culture where most feel inclined to provide help and guidance to any young person reaching out.

And what more defines someone “young” than the status of “college student”?

While this status is a very short-lived one, as it only last 4 years, it is very underrated as to the number of opportunities it can provide.

As a student, the world has handed you opportunities, more or less on a silver platter, that others struggle to get access to.

But there’s one small catch. To take advantage of these opportunities, it is your job to take the first step and reach out to open the door.

There’s no shame in exploiting the world’s desire to empower students. In fact, it’s a travesty that more students don’t take advantage of this pivotal time in their lives to open doors and build the life and future they want.

If you can internalize this idea and put it into practice, then you can (1) make the most of your time as a “college student,” and (2) set yourself up for success beyond college.
