The steps begin, as everyone walks in a single file line to the cold seats we’ll sit in.
Sitting there, reflecting on the past twelve to thirteen years of our lives.
Last, many high school graduates decide not to strive for a college degree and join the work force right after graduating.
Choosing not to further education past high school doesn’t give a person the earning potential a college graduate has by graduating from college, although they will also not incur school debt.
This means they will not be forced to pay back expensive school loans and will be able to have more financial freedom in the short term.
A person joining the work force has the ability to stay in touch with friends in the area they live in and can either live at home for a few years after graduating or find their own place to reside.To begin with, many graduates run from their parents and desire to go to college as far away from home as possible.When graduates move away, they get their first taste of living away from home which brings added responsibilities.Most grade-schoolers intently dream about the day they will walk across the stage on commencement day and receive their diplomas.They are under the impression they will be free from all work in their life, and be able to finally live.A person majoring in marine biology will find a job in marine biology because they went to college for it because it is what they enjoy doing.Going away to college can be a wonderful time for a person to mature and start their adult life, but it can also give a person the opportunity to go downhill in life decisions.Next year, we’ll be paying for school, living off of Top Ramen, and awaiting this last step that determines how the rest of our lives will pan out.Some being something as prestigious as an MD or lawyer, some heading to community college or trade schools, some just heading straight into careers.The influence of peer pressure is not as great to a commuting student because they will not be on campus on the weekends unless they choose to be.Commuting to college can be a great way to save money, while still earning a college degree.
