Why do people study in college?
Some people say that studying in college is very important whereas others say that it’s just waste of time and money.
I think there are a few reasons to study in college. First one needs to have a college education to become a good specialist. People study in college to prepare themselves for their future jobs. There is an opinion that good education can get you a good job that pays a lot of money. It might be the foundation for a successful and happy life. It’s also a way to make a lot of friends and learn how to study.
Other people say that Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and others who didn’t graduate from college still became great innovators and businessmen. Why should one study things that are not really useful, instead of doing the things that one wants to do.
In my opinion, people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are more the exception than the rule. We can see a lot more examples of people who got a good education and went on to find a good job and made a lot of money.
So I believe that studying in college is mighty important. You make friends, develop good skills and prepare yourself for work. Remembering the immortal words of Steve Jobs, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” I think that that can also be applied to studying in college.
