Chelsea Aragon Fresh Sem 101 D Multi-Draft 1 College: Is it worth four years of your life? College is worth the time and effort if the student is willing to put forth that time and effort in order to obtain knowledge and the experience. After high school, the next step almost every parent wants their child to take is college. Most of the kids appease their parents and attend college, but they often wonder if it is worth it. Is it worth four years of your life, the high cost, living on your own, completing a program to obtain a degree? There are also many pressures that college students face today that affect their decisions about their future According to William Zinnser there are many pressures that college students face while working on their degree. There is the economic pressure, peer pressure, self- induced pressure and the pressure of the parents. All of the pressures Zinnser describes are pressures almost every student faces when attending college. A main pressure on students after they obtain their degree is the job they can actually accomplish with this degree. Some students go to college and focus on the job-getting aspect and that is known as the can-opener approach.
