Is a four-year college education valuable?

College is the best investment that you will ever make and you will see it after four years of effort on a stage getting your diploma.                                                                                         A four-year college can be very expensive but it’s very worth it and helpful. College can help you in many ways such as socializing with people, preparing you for the real world and many other ways. College is very worth it because graduates are more likely to have a higher salary, more likely to have a better job and less likely to be unemployed.

A four-year college is worth it. College graduates are more likely to have a better job or career. In paragraph four it says, “perhaps, it’s also worth remembering that there are companies that are bursting with college graduates”.                                                                    If you want to work with Facebook, Apple, Microsoft or any of those big companies you need to have a college degree. You might not want to work with Microsoft or any of those companies but you want to be a doctor, you will need a college degree for that, that’s why college is very important.

College graduates are also more likely to be in jobs with better salaries. Paragraph five  states, “the median weekly earnings for someone with some college but no degree were $712. Compared to $1038 for a college graduate”.                                                                           All graduates have a big chance of getting a better salary and a better future for their kids, and even to buy a house or save the money.

The economic gaps between college graduates and those with less education are getting larger everyday. In paragraph five it states, “in 2010, the unemployment rate was 9.2 percent for those with only some college and more than 10 percent with just a high school degree but it was 5.4 percent for college graduates”, these numbers show that a person needs a college degree because it increases the chances of a steady job. Becoming a lawyer, doctor, or a teacher means that your job will always be needed. This helps to prove that a college degree is valuable.

Some would say that a four-year college degree is not valuable because it’s very expensive, there are some jobs or careers that don’t require a college degree and you can still be successful and make a lot of money. However, this is wrong because if you have a college degree it would be easier for you to find a job anywhere, and more likely to have a better salary than a person without a college degree.                                                                 More students would be like these college graduates if they realize that it was a good investment and they will get more money than they invested after they graduate the hard work will pay off. More over the higher education will provide more opportunities.
