Brian Michael Posted 11 months ago Is college really as important as our society today has made it out to be? Go to college if you know what you want and know you have the talents and real desire to persue that dream. Do not go to college if you are totally clueless about some kind of future direction you want to take with your life. If you enter a college and drift from major to major, all the while wasting time and money, you will regret your decision. If you don't have an absolute passion for what you are going to school for and don't want to turn it into a life then college may not be your best bet. A trade school or just finding a job might be the best alternative. Who knows, simple beginnings can lead to greater things.
