students with less knowledge and preparation would be left out. Great minds such as Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs, who did poorly in high school, would be electricians or plumbers. Taking this opportunity away will result in a less educated society and possibly a worse economy. Another reason why everyone should have the opportunity to go to college is because it is better for your credentials. Sandy Baum agrees that, “Further education or training makes a better life for the vast majority,” (Weber). Even if students do not do well in college and do not earn a degree, attending college is a great resume builder. In fact, Baum also concludes, “On average, men with some college but no degree make 22% more than men with a high-school education,” (Weber). Having college credentials shows your determination and willingness to be educated, as well as show future employers that you have acquired skills that maybe crucial for a job. In the long run, receiving higher education will help increase your budget and standard of living, improve personal growth, and lead to a successful life. In conclusion, going to college can be a fulfilling and beneficial experience, but it may also not be the right choice for some. More students going to vocational school instead of college, attending college to learn skills that you need in life, students that learn irrelevant rather than what they need to know, and everyone getting the opportunity to go to college are important to understanding the aspects and defects on higher education. Everyone has the capability to succeed in life and do their part in improving society, whether it’s receiving a college education or not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
