What is College for?
What is College for? There are many answers to this question. I feel college is for people that want to succeed in life. You can be in any wage bracket, depending on what you’re majoring in. For example, you can go to school to be a doctor or a registered nurse. We all know doctors make more than a RN, so a doctor is in a higher wage bracket than a RN. As a student, you have the choice to be whatever you want to be. You might be in a major you like and end up changing majors because you found a major you like better.

I began working for myself painting cars, doing body work, and studying in the Heating and Air program simultaneously. The class consisted of primarily book work. I can count on one hand how many times we worked on the ac units. I did receive my Diploma in Heating and Air and decided not to go further because of limited learning. Afterwards, I enrolled in the Barbering Program, which also consisted of limited learning. The program’s curriculum was primarily centered on cosmetology. I was 3 classes short of completing the Barbering program before quitting. I felt it was a waste of my time because I learned very little. I then decided to enroll into SCAD as a Photo major and minor in Film and Television. After taking an intro to Film class, I decided to change my major to Film and Television.
In life, you may make changes to what you want to do or be. My experiences in comparison to those of other people are nowhere near the same. This is why I talk to my children a lot about life because I don’t want them to experience the same things I have. It’s imperative that children hear these things so that they’re abreast of how it really is in life. There are a lot of challenges we all will encounter in life, not just kids but adult also. Life is a learning process, you have to go through obstacles and learn from it. Unless, you have someone to give you guidance on life. Sometimes, it takes someone to give you valuable information to help you in life. If you don’t have that guidance, you will have to learn the hard way, which is trial and error. Sometimes you can give someone valuable information and they don’t listen. Then at that point they have to learn the hard way. Later, they will see what you said to them comes to past.
Some may think College is a waist of time and they may prefer to learn a job on- line doing research. Rather, than going to college to learn that job, they would save money by learning it through research. My neighbor learned about Photography on-line from research, because she didn’t have the money to enroll in SCAD to learn it. Also, I read a blog about a guy who said he would not go to College and waist his time. He said, why waist your money on classes what you will not need like Math, History, English and so forth. He learned Photograph on-line by doing research. I understand what he was talking about. The only reason I’m inCollege because I need hands on training. It is hard for me to learn some things by reading. Some people are good at learning by reading things.
Humanities, English, Math and so on are not helpful in all majors. I was reading that there was a drop in Humanities from the 70’s to the 90’s. What they don’t understand is that everyone cannot be a teacher or a doctor. I feel that it does not matter if there is a drop in humanities. If it was an increase in humanities, there would not be any jobs. I would only worry about it if there were not enough work for that field. Really I don’t know what kinds of jobs...
