A College education is a once in a lifetime opportunity where an individual learns and experiences new things every day. I am enthusiastic to become academically mature in my work environment. I am presently a Customer Service representative at ABI Bank Ltd located in St. John’s, Antigua. I have been with the organization for over five years. I am eager to complete my college degree because I know it will open doors and provide opportunities for me which are presently out of my reach. I wish to work in the Human Resource Department of my organization and at present I am not qualified for the many positions that become available over time. A college education serves as the gateway to better options and greater promotion opportunity. A college education is the only way to obtain a good job and the type of job that will allow for a comfortable lifetime income and a secure future. I think it will help me develop my skills in analysis, acceptance, expression, and communiqué. These skills will in turn aid me in resolving variances and solve crisis that come up in the course of my personal and professional life. I think that education is a prerequisite for getting a good job because of the fact that the world is changing so rapidly and most jobs require qualifications that are essential for the position. It helps in the process of getting a good start on life. I have seen more often within my organization that recent graduates get hired quicker than a non graduate. Also, most organizations require at least an associate’s degree for entry level positions, because they think that they would have already possessed the specific skills to perform detailed tasks. I also believe that doing this course online will aid in my time management skills, and I would not have to worry about having to quit my job, I will still be able to work fulltime and complete my degree. Neither would I have to miss spending time with my family.

THE IMPORTANCE AND BENEFITS OF EDUCATION 3
Parents having or not having a college degree should not determine if their child will go to college. Some may say the amount of money the parents make should determine if the child will be able to attend college. If the parent’s income is low that should motivate the kid to try harder to at least earn a scholarship to college. On the news there was a teenager about the age of 18; she was a senior who is getting ready to graduate. Her parents had no money to put her through college. She told the reporter that she was not going to allow that stop her from going to college. This young lady is now going to University of Notre Dame on a full ride scholarship. There is no reason not to attend college,...

Benefits of a CollegeEducation
Going to college is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. College is where many people make the decisions that will mold them for the rest of their lives. In college you meet the people who will leave the biggest impressions on your future. Challenges in college will make a person question life. When will you graduate? How will you make more money than when you started? These challenges are what will shape and form students into the new working generation. So what exactly is a challenge?
A challenge is defined as something that by nature or character calls forth special effort. This is a reason why college is beneficial: it challenges you. It expands the normal range of thought. By influencing a person to think different thoughts. How does this pertain to higher educational learning? Say a student is taking a first level Spanish class, and they walk in to realize that the teacher speaks only in Spanish. What should they do? Or when a student is late for class but their teachers locks the door on late students. What should they do? These situations are common amongst college age student’s whether at work or in school. The way that these students handle these situations will determine how they deal with situation throughout the rest of their lives....
The Importance of Early Formal Education
Early formal education refers to the education that children obtain during early stages of their childhood. Early childhood is a crucial time period for the development of the mental functions of children. This development, including the emergence of the abilities and skills in areas such as language, motor skills, psychosocial cognitive, and learning, is now known to be greatly influenced by exogenous factors, including the nature of the educational environment to which the child is exposed during the first eight years of life. The benefits of early childhood education have long been disputed. For many years it was believed that children who receive early formal education have an advantage over those who start school at age five or six. Today, some educators challenge that view. They speculate that intellectual and emotional harm can result from putting very young children into structured learning situations. It is hard to deny the opponents opinion that children have always grown up to be intelligent and reliable young adults without the benefits of early childhood education. However, in my opinion, I feel like children who receive early formal education will have advantages over those who start school at age five or six because early formal...
...As a little girl my mother had always told me that education was very important. She’d always emphasize that she wanted me to be the first one in my family to go to college right out of high school. Of course, I didn’t really understand or care because I was so young. Now that I am in high school I take into my mothers words and realize that college is important. But now the question is, “What college do I want to attend?” I have taken into consideration many other colleges. I believe that the University of Oklahoma is the best college for me. OU can offer me a wonderful education, a path to success, and a chance to major in Interior Design.
One reason why I believe the University of Oklahoma is the school for me concerns the significance of my education. I have always heard that OU was a great school but in all honesty I didn’t really know why. I began to do some research on this university and found out that it is ranked 101 nationwide out of over 1,600 schools. I have always known that there are over 40 sororities in this school. This university also has over 300 student clubs and organizations. In all case, what isn’t there to do in OU?
Not only will I get an education but I will also get a path to success. The faculty and staffs of OU is loyal and trustworthy. I know that they will lead me to the positive direction to success for a better...
...Why Collegeeducation is important to me.
One of the most important things in live that humans normally start to lose when we get older, is the ability to get surprised. Everything around us is not exciting anymore and tends to be all around a routine, mundane and repetitive. However, and luckily for us, there is one part in live that always come to the rescue: the ability to learn. Education is my most useful personal source in order to maintain and improve my ability to get surprised, learn to think, and, during the process, maintain my mind fresh and updated, keeping myself curious and hungry for more.
The most important advantage in getting collegeeducation is to keep the ability to get surprised. It comes a time in live when everything starts to turn into a routine, and the mind starts to get really comfortable with the environment and the issues around it. This is a critical stage in which you tend to lose the capacity to feel astonished. When you get surprised, curiosity unties your interest and open doors to new possibilities, maintaining your mind hungry for more information, and learning ways to do things differently. This, is ultimately a good way to improve your job performance, increase motivation and inspiration while following your passions, or simply solve daily tasks issues. When the mind is surprised, it fuels curiosity in us.
...todays society, having a collegeeducation is one of the single most important factors when applying for a job. Employers expect at the minimum for applicants to have an Associates degree. However, many employers prefer hiring individuals who have obtained a bachelors degree or higher. In “Are Too Many People Going to College?”, Charles Murray discusses the importance of Americans sharing the same basic core knowledge (223). Having acollege degree makes an individual more money than an individual who just has a high school diploma. It provides people with a wide variety of opportunity regarding career paths and educational experiences. Those who obtain a college degree often times have a more secure future regarding their job and if they decide to advance to a different job. With a degree individuals have the will power to move a different job without worrying about not meeting certain job requirements.

...dramatically and the prices of college increased steadily. The State of California unemployment benefits offered paid vocational training in college courses to those that qualified and jobs were no longer in existence. Some even applied for scholarships and government grants to help pay for college tuitions or they worked at minimum wage jobs to pay their way through or their parents paid for college. From 1994 to 2014 there were many changes for a higher education, tuition costs, housing, transportation, and registrations from students coming from other countries.
Even though unemployment continued to increase during 1994 to 2014, collegeeducation continues to be valued by many people. In an article published in 1994, according to author James J. Duderstadt, “Nationwide the money invested in a collegeeducation results in one of the highest returns of any investment a student or family can make” (Duderstadt). Author Duderstadt, compares a student with a college degree is valued more than a student that is a high school graduate. Also, author Duderstadt states that a person with a collegeeducation, the person’s life long earnings will increase. Consequently, according to author Richard Perez-Pena, “College enrollment fell 2 percent in 2012-2013, the first significant decline since...
The Importance of College
Higher education can be very beneficial to the individual and to the broader community. The common conception that higher education would mean higher pay is proven to be true. Not only is college beneficial to the individuals, but in the long-run, it helps their communities as well. College-graduates can provide their communities with new businesses and a better skilled work-force. Therefore, it would be an advantageous for people to attend college as it will promise a brighter future.
Collegeeducation was said to be beneficial even in the earliest years of American history. One of the many people who advocated college was Thomas Jefferson, “The less wealthy people… by the bill for a general education, would be qualified to understand their rights, to maintain them, and to exercise with intelligence their parts of self-government…” (88). His writings about education has shaped the early decades of America’s schooling system. He thought that education would help to ensure the equality of all people in the country. Higher education was thought to be beneficial to early America because it was supposed to preserve the nation’s democracy. Schools like Harvard in 1636 and Yale in 1701 strongly approved of a good education. The...
