College: Why Go

My colleagues passed on a great website about going to college. It is by students and for students and I highly recommend passing it on to any high school students you know.


What caught my attention are the reasons to go to college listed on the site. It’s not about just getting an education, there is so much more value found in that very pursuit. Here is what it says:

why go
