A Reminder That We All Need: The Benefits of a Higher Education

A Reminder That We All Need: The Benefits of a Higher Education
  • Opening Intro -

    Education is to freedom as a chocolate cake is to delicious.

    Attaining a higher education may seem by many, especially in today's society, to be a waste of time.

-------------------------------------

With the internet and so many social media outlets to support one’s lifestyle, it would appear to many people that going to college is now just a waste of time.

Although, it’s possible to become successful, especially in our society, without attaining a higher education. Our higher education still provides many individuals a massive amount of benefits.

There are many good cases why many people don’t want to go to college, the main reason being the amount one has to pay for tuition. However, there are many benefits of sticking to your higher education.

1. Opens your mind to new ideas

Going to college has the benefit of opening up one’s mind to new ideas and new ways of thinking. Depending on the university you go to (Some universities have devolved into babysitting institutions for young adults), there are many chances of discovering new ideas as well as a new outlook on life.

College has always been an institution that drove a country to a better and brighter future, hence the phrase ‘our best and brightest’.

2. Demonstrates Commitment

Getting your degree in whatever field you may have sought after shows a great level of commitment as well as dedication and determination. Sticking to something for a long time also aids in helping the development of one’s maturity.

3. Develops your Maturity

As stated in the former reasons – a higher education lends to a much more open mind and also lends to a stronger mind. The coupling between these two notions greatly helps to develop maturity in individuals. College now becomes a rite of passage from scared child to insecure and naive teenager to a young adult who is starting to think for themselves.

The first step to maturity is the ability to start to question and start to think for oneself.

4. Confidence Builder

Delivering academic speeches to your peers and under the eye of your professor may sound intimidating by many people. However, it’s in doing things that are scary where many people have later started to feel courage and bravery.

5. Secure your future

As elucidated in the opening of this blog, the internet has made it incredibly easy to be successful. However, successful only in terms of finances. Having enough money does not equate to having enough knowledge.

Although you may have your degree and a career to ‘fall back on’, what you really gain from college, or at least what you should have gained from college, is the ability to think for yourself and the ability to look at challenges not as an end but only as a challenge.

If you liked this blog and feel that you are doing the right thing in spending your time studying and becoming your greatest version of yourself, then share this story

We are strong because we were weak

Brave because we were scared

WISE because we were foolish

Educate yourself!!
