Every year, tens of thousands of college applications pour into the nation's top universities. The demand for a college degree has skyrocketed in recent years and will only continue to increase.
Not all colleges are created equal. Not every student will get in. The competition is fierce. So the years before graduation are critical.
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
There's no argument that college is an expensive endeavor. Many students take out big loans that can add up fast. Meanwhile, many question the value of a college degree in the age of Google and Youtube. After all, there are more ways than ever to find success without a college degree.
But college is more than just a degree.
While academics are the main focus in college, the campus life is where connections are made that will open doors. There's no substitute for the memories and personal growth that will come with a college degree.
Over 80% of jobs in four of the fastest-growing occupations—healthcare, STEM, education, and government services—demand postsecondary education.
Not to say that college is the only path to success. However, our mission is to put each student in a position to make that choice with the right tools in place. At a minimum, our students will graduate with the skills necessary to compete in an increasingly complex workforce, with or without a degree.
