    I get a general education so I won't seem stupid. When I graduate (Im going for a Civil Engineering degree) I will be making $60,000+ right out of college, versus making a max of maybe $20 an hour with no degree. I won't be the first person to get laid off. People without a degree are expendable because anyone can do their job, with a degree I have more value, thus make more money and don't get fired (as soon, still might happen). I will be able to retire a lot sooner (or at all) compared to someone with no degree. I will have extra spending money (goes back to higher pay check) so I won't always be living pay check to pay check and be able to live well. I will be able to get farther for my jobs because of a degree. Society in general will hold me in higher regard because I went the extra step after high school for a degree. There are also lots of girls I can easily talk to in college. The list goes on, but that is the primary basis for most of it.

    To get the education for their future careers. You can't become a lot of things without college! Like a teacher, librarian, doctor, etc.

    Statistics show that the more education you have the more you will make in your lifetime, so if money is a big thing college is the way to go.
