“Whycollegeeducation is important to me”
Collegeeducation is important to me because it will create more opportunities with my employer as well as increase my salary. I know some employers put more emphasis on a collegeeducation than others. Unfortunately,collegeeducation isn’t an option for some individuals. I know many people around me that couldn’t go to college due to conflicting obligations or lack of financial support. I am thirty-eight years old and am just now starting college. While I do see an importance for collegeeducation on some career paths, I also see that not all career paths require it.
My current employer now requires a college degree for any of their professional positions. My employment relationship with my company began through a high school co-operative program and, at the time, there was no requirement to possess a degree. Today, my position has been grandfathered in through seniority, but I need a degree for advancement in my career path; therefore, a collegeeducation is very important for me and my family and the advancement of my career. My salary will...
...“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”--Nelson Mandela, July 16 2003
An education is more than going to a college or university to receive a degree. It provides the opportunity to expand our minds to the fullest, to absorb what is around us. It allows us to experience the differences and similarities of our fellow men and women. To me, that is why a collegeeducation is important. It prepares you for the future world in which, at times, can change in an instant.
The quote by Nelson Mandela about education and the power it brings is very important. Education is one thing someone cannot take away. By advancing yourself and obtaining an education allows you not to be ignorant and be manipulated by wrongdoers of this world. In my family that statement is true. I have many family members who did not receive higher education once they graduated high school. Looking back as a child through the years I have witnessed them being taken advantage of due to the lack of education and knowledge of the situation they were in. I promised myself I was not going to be put in that situation of not knowing and being taken advantage of due to the lack of education.

It is an American dream, and I think that one of our challenges is to find a way to make that available.” (Unknown,2012)

...WhyCollegeEducation is Important to MeCollegeeducation is important because I feel it will allow me to have a successful future in my current career and will provide financial stability for my family. Unlike in the past, today having more than a diploma is required to get a decent job that does not make minimum wage. High school graduates today are unable to obtain the number of high-paying jobs that were once available, and will get passed for an employment oppurtunity rather than an individual who is a new graduate with a college degree.
As a mother I want to provide a better life for my family and to be a good role model for my child. When she was five, I asked her "What do you want to be when you grow up." She said, "I want to work at Wal-Mart." Now if you ask her she says she wants to do hair. I want to show her if that is what she wants to do, after hair school she can go to college and major in buisness and end up owning a salon. Malcom X said "Education is our passport to the future. For tomorrow, belongs to people who prepare for today." In order for her or myself to have a brighter future I need a collegeeducation so that I may aquire a better job, promotion or increase in pay.

Why is collegeimportant to me?
I often dream about becoming a successful business owner of my own restaurant “T. C’s Jamaican Restaurant, but to attain this goal I must acquire a collegeeducation that teaches me how to become the best manager in that industry.
Education is important to me because coming from a family of 8 in Jamaica, I was the only one who went to college and for my brothers and sisters to see that I could reach my goal in life sets a higher standard for them.
Another reason it is important is it opens my eyes to see a better future and quality of life for those around me. Seeing that I can help my family in Jamaica, especially my mom out of poverty and not be ashamed of where we lived anymore. My mom was my motivation in life to become the person that I am right now, and to see that I have exceeded that and more, motivates me to push even harder.
I hope that I have motivated my daughter to do that same to go after her dreams and never give up like how my mother did for me.
A collegeeducation helped me to gain the knowledge of the world around me, it showed me how to live a better life and how to become a mature adult who looks and plans towards the future. How to get...

Being a teacher is the first step to changing the youth of today’s minds one brain at a time. I feel education is the key in making a career driven person. I know many say education begins in the home but that’s just the foundation to a college ready child teachers are often the second source of this very important foundation. We are the tools used to make a child ready for future they are going to have. It gets even better with all the new ways you can be college ready or even attend colleges around the world. Not just the old fashion paper and pencil deal we can use the technology today to be a college graduate. Even so it still needs the knowledge of an instructor who is educated to lead a college student to a career. You just don’t want someone with lack of experience trying to educate you about something they absolutely know nothing about. That’s you I know college is important to me because I want children to succeed and dream the most spontaneous dream. I want children to walk away and feel the difference I made in the their life. That’s the joy of being an educator but to get there I have to get a college degree to teach. It’s my dream and it...
Whycollegeeducation is important to me
By Coleman Rickels
Collegeeducation is essential to me for my advancement in my career field. It is nessesary for me to aquire a degree in my field to recieve a promotion into a managment position. I have chosen construction managment because I am currently employed in the construstion field as a laborer and would like to advance in that career and become a manager in the same field.
I love construction, I enjoy getting up early in the morning and meeting my crew at our yard. I enjoy the ride to the job site with the people I will be spending my day with. I like conversing with them and learning more about them every day. I enjoy getting to the jobsite, warming up the equipment, and gathering all the tools we will need to complete the days tasks. I enjoy working throughout the day and working with each other to achieve the set goals for the day. I enjoy coming upon a problem and having to put our minds together to overcome it and resume work.
I believe aquiring this degree will open up a new side of the construction field for me. I would like to move into a management position and find new things about the construction field I enjoy doing. As John F. Kenedy said; “Let us think of Education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a...
