In addition, people who pursue and finish a bachelor degree have demonstrated to their employers a passion for learning, and an ability to adhere to deadlines and produce work that is of satisfactory quality. Employers often look favorably upon potential job candidates who have proven that they are capable of committing to such tasks and responsible enough to fulfill them. People who have earned bachelor degrees are also in better positions to take on jobs with higher levels of responsibility, in particular those that require professional licensing. Individuals who wish to become doctors, lawyers, or teachers, for instance, must have a college degree. A bachelor degree is also necessary for those who wish to pursue graduate studies and obtain higher levels of qualifications.

Also, a lot of jobs actually require you to have a BBA degree at least as part of their requirements, even if you do have a specific certification for the job.
1. It shows that you have the stamina to handle the rigors of a college education.
2. It shows that you have a foundation of more knowledge in a particular field of study than would be obtained by only finishing HS.
3. You are an alum which means you are part of a network of people who should be willing to help you reach your goals.
4. There are many benefits such as friendships, student activities, athletics, being a fan, participating in clubs and intermural sports
5. Another benefit is that you begin a life of independence away from mom and dad and thus begin to grow up and begin having to be independent.
6. Along with this is increased responsibility, perhaps financially and personally and emotionally. You will have to most likely begin budgeting and making hard choices for time management and learning to say no to some thing so you can say yes to what you believe are the most important things.
7. This is basically time management but it is a very important life-skill.
8. Also, you will need to learn to be organized; many of these skills will be necessary where you go to college or not, but in order to do well in school, you will have a structured environment and many free resources to help you along the way to be a good student, etc
9. Also, depending on where you grew up and what you were exposed to, College offers wonderful new exposure to a more diverse student body and international students and more lifestyle views, etc. You will certainly need to make good decisions, but you will be given many views to choose from.
10. Another benefit are exposure to opportunities that you may not be able to get elsewhere, like the chance to study abroad and participate in student exchange and living with another family in another country.
11. More practically, a Degree is often required for a job; not always, but often. Of course, it depends what job field and type you are looking for, but often a college degree is a basic qualification for many jobs, a bare minimum. This is not always the case, but it often is.
These are just a few of the benefits and I would do your own research and ask your family and friends and your school resources as most people associated with your school will have gone to college.
Higher annual income (about $25,000 more per year vs high school only).
Much lower unemployment rate.
More likely to be at an employer that offers a retirement plan & health insurance.
More likely to exercise, volunteer, vote, & not smoke.

A bachelors degree teaches you the foundation and technical capabilities needed for the career you are preparing for post-college. These days companies have been announcing the removal of college degrees as a requirement for acceptance but in reality if you look up the statistics it is still unbelievably difficult to even land an interview. Some jobs such as medicine or law require you to have a bachelors degree before you get into the many years of post graduate education.
It all boils down to what you want to do with your life and what is the path you need to take to get there. If a bachelors degree will get you there then that is the benefit of a bachelors degree.
