 I believe that college should be a personal decision that everyone needs to make depending on what you would like to do for your job, Personally I’m a senior this year, and I’ll be attending college in the fall. People always tell me  that if I don’t go to college, then I won’t be able to live a good life. However, I don’t believe you have to go to college to be successful. My father left high school when he was in the 11th grade, but he now owns his own construction business and makes more money than my mother who did go to college and works at Grand Strand Hospital.

People will constantly pressure you to go a four year college because that’s how their parents raised them. Society constantly tells us we won’t make it in life if we don’t continue our education after high school. Do they not think about all the factors that are connected to this?   College can be very expensive, and some families may not be able to afford to send their children to college so they will have to find other jobs that don’t require college.

People should not be able to tell you that you have to go to college. It is your own choice; no one else’s. Follow your heart.
