Weird question, I know, but I've seriously been thinking and questioning this for a while now.
So many people I know (myself included) know they want to go to college, but they don't know exactly why they want to go to college, other than it's expected of them to receive a higher education.
I want to go to college because of the opportunities it will grant me--yes, I want a good job, but it's not so much of the personal gain factor more than me wanting to help support my little brother if my mother, a single parent, passes away suddenly, and my future children, so they have the opportunity to do whatever their hearts desire. Oh, and I want to meet and talk with some amazing people with whom I'll keep in touch for the rest of my life.
So why do you want to go to college? Your thoughts? I'm curious.
