That is such a great question and something that we talk about a lot in the workplace. Attending college can bring a lot of value to your life as a whole.
1. It helps you to expand your knowledge base for the area you are studying and therefore supports your career development.
2. You have the opportunity to engage in a variety of extracurricular activities that help you to network with others, through those interactions you can knowledge share, make new connections and support your school.
3. For some the overall experience of leaving home & gaining some independence in itself is a learning experience.
4. Depending on the career path you are looking at a degree is required and/or preferred. This also can at times be something that companies are looking for when making hiring decisions.
With that all taken into account, don't make a decision to go to school, to just go to school. Ensure you have a passion, a goal and that the school you choose fits in to your long term goals.
Best of luck!

This a very interesting question as I think people have different opinions on this particular topic. But as a college and post grad student I can assure you that attending college will really help building your future. The exposure you get not only in theoretical knowledge but also the practical ones is highly recommended before you join work. I understand that we learn everyday in our jobs but let me tell you the amount of struggle will be totally different if you are coming from a college. You would have an idea on how to tackle and approach a problem as you would have definitely gone through some similar kind during your college courses and assignments.
You will have broader knowledge on any subject you would like to pursue late in your life if you build your initials strong with a college degree.
Hope this helps you.
It all depends on what type of work you want to do. If you would like to be what's known as a knowledge worker (often business professionals), many times a college degree is a prerequisite to even be considered. If you want to be a lawyer, doctor, therapist, or researcher, you will need an advanced degree as well. Sometimes even if a degree is not required for a position, hiring managers want to know that you were willing to commit to something and follow though - which you can demonstrate by pursuing and obtaining a college education.
In addition to career considerations, though, going to college is a great way to meet people who have similar interests (and sometimes become life-long friends), stretch and challenge your ways of thinking and have experiences that are different from your family of origin. It can also help you determine what type of work you'd like to do.
