Truth be told, it is the place where you will probably learn the most about yourself as you slowly realize what is it you desire for yourself once academics are behind.
It's the place where you will new things, expand your horizons.
It is also the place where you will probably fail the most and be the most financially unstable.
College is where you learn things, both inside and outside the classroom.
It is not everyone's cup of tea and that is totally ok, and as we all know there are so many examples of successful businessmen or women being a college drop out but doing pretty well for themselves. My friend's dad dropped out but he is still able to provide for his family
So I suppose if you are on the fence about College, ask yourself this:
Do you want to give yourself more years to grow and learn but also make many mistakes to learn from? College will probably be what you're looking for.
But if you're looking to just work a job, any job, and just have plenty of money, then maybe now is not the time for college for you. But that isn't to say that college will forever be out of the question because who knows, at age 25 or whatever you may decide now is the time and that's totally ok.
But to answer your question once again: College is the place where you could quite possibly have the best years of your life. And it's a once in a lifetime opportunity that sadly not everyone gets. So when you get that opportunity, don't waste on just studying and stressing, enjoy yourself.
