Bill Gates. Mark Zuckerberg. Steve Jobs. All three of them reached a point in their lives when they felt it was necessary to drop out of college and pursue something more important that would eventually award each with billions. These three men, and others like them, beg the question: why go to college?
The simple answer is that you need to go to college to get a job. Many will argue that the technical things you learn in the classroom are just too valuable to let go. Others, that the name of a college on your resume is what prevents your job application from being thrown away on arrival. But with tuition skyrocketing and the status of the educational system under constant questioning, more and more people are wondering whether or not it is worth it.
