Why College

Why College?

An investment in a college degree is an investment in you.

College provides an excellent opportunity to grow personally and professionally as you explore your interests, gain new knowledge, develop essential career skills and collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds.

These connections and unique experiences can lead to valuable networking opportunities, internships and job offers. With the job market becoming increasingly competitive, having a degree sets you apart from other candidates and increases your chances of landing a job that aligns with your passions, values and aspirations.

95% or 8.4 million of all new jobs created since 2010 require a bachelor’s degree or greater

A college degree boosts your career advancement and earning potential

Nationally, those with a bachelor’s degree will earn $1 million more over their lifetime compared to those without a bachelor’s degree.
