Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. Many students have similar question. In fact, the college days is more my most memorable period in my life.
In terms of learning, you have wide variety of subjects that you can choose the interest one to attend. You can learn via the interaction with the professors, tutors, classmates and doing projects. The knowledge you can learn is not only via the instructor led lecture but also in doing projects and research, It also trains up your critical thinking skills. It is essential for your life time.
There are wide varieties extra curriculum activities you can participate and you can join the committee to organize the events. These are valuable experience to you and have benefit for you in your career.
On the other hand, you have plenty of opportunities to establish wide people network in the same class, faculty, extra curriculum activities, in the dorm, etc. These will be become your asset in the future.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Francisco’s Answer

Hi Valeria!

That´s definitely a question that recently people my age and younger are answering with a no or that it wasn´t worth it.
What I would say is that it depends on where your interests and motivations are. Is a college degree an absolute necessity? Definitely not, you don´t have to go to college.
Do you want to pursue an specialized field that most likely requires a degree? Well, then definitely yes. Do you want to pursue a trade or start a business? Then maybe there might be other equivalent options than going to a college degree.
College however, is a great experience that will allow you to network, grow and discover your passions. And whenever you find something interesting in your classes and projects, try learning a bit more outside of the curriculum, that´s how I discovered what I liked to do!

Mohit’s Answer

Indeed, it does.
For the majority of careers, there's a basic requirement, and having a degree can be beneficial.

Moreover, every job demands specific skills, and the more proficient you become, the better you'll fit in. Enhancing these skills might take as much or even more effort than obtaining a degree.

So, while it's not essential to possess a degree, having the knowledge certainly is.

You might come across stories of successful drop-outs, but remember, they left institutions like Harvard. Additionally, they had well-defined plans for their future endeavors.

Wishing you all the best in your educational journey!
