The Truth about College

You do not pay to go to school to learn what the professor teaches you. You can simply go to the library and read the books assigned and surf the web for the latest research to find the answers to the questions you have on a subject matter. (Unless you’re in school for an applied science…)

Why then do we pay thousands of dollars to go to school?

The people. The connections you make while in school are integral to your success. Do not get caught in the routine of introductions and forget that the real value of your education is not in the front of the room lecturing, but rather in what you can learn from the person sitting next to you.

See beyond the homework assignments and group presentations. See the relevance of each person in your life, not just now, but when you get on the outside of the walls of the college or university.

Highlight your worth to others by demonstrating your work ethic in what you do. The difference between an open door and missed opportunity could lie simply in if your classmate would recommend you or not.
