It’s the first of August.
And this marks my halfway point of the summer. For those of you who are just about to start college, going back to school in the fall, or are thinking, have gone, or know people who are in college this Infographic from DegreeJungle has some interesting statistics to keep in mind.
My take on the whole “to go to college to not go to college” debate is go to school if you have some idea of what you want to do. Or even if you have no idea what you want to do I still think there is value in pursuing post-secondary education. You’ll be exposed to new experiences, new people, new ways of thinking and at school you’ll have access to a wide range of resources in your professors, peer group and all the frills your university or college decided to spend your tuition money on.
Of course at the end of the journey you might feel the whole process amounted to nothing more than a piece of paper that symbolizes your diploma but you can always choose to change direction at anytime. That time might be half way through the first semester or one year to go in medical school but regardless, just like in life you can choose to change the course your taking.
Think on it.
