Education is a procedure of learning and reaping knowledge. It is the foundation of anyone’s life and one of the most important and crucial parts of life. To be successful in life, we spend our maximum time educating ourselves. According to my opinion, a college education is an approach to understand the things that we learned from 1st grade to high school. School education aims to understand the basic things that we have to use in life. And the college education aims to upskill how to sustain and grow in life.
Now the question comes why college education is important in one’s life? Let’s talk about the benefits we get from a college education. For a successful career, everyone needs a college education as it provides a sense of responsibility, awareness, and freedom of thought. College life is a stage where every student dreams to be once in their lifetime. Life at college is a time when we decide our careers. It is a place where we manifest all our dreams and goals. It’s time to accomplish our dream and choose innumerable paths. We are free to endeavor new things and no one is going to forcefully control our decisions. College education gifts the freedom to choose our careers in interesting fields and build confidence. It provides us numerous career opportunities, builds our confidence, and perception. It edifies us with a sense of responsibility and helps us to open our minds. It also upskills various important aspects of career and life. And let’s not forget the part that it also helps to improve our communication skills.
A college education provides numerous career opportunities. There are basically two types of job – private and government job. Private Job is the job where we enter the corporate world and there are no companies who recruit their employees on completion of 10th grade and high school. Every company seeks for e graduate or post-graduate employees. There are only a few government jobs available after 10th grade and high school but they are not high-paying jobs and those can’t be anyone’s dream job. A high-paying job in a reputed position in the government and private sector is the goal of many people. To achieve that goal college education is a very important and crucial part of life.
College education helps to build our confidence and understanding. It boosts up the level of confidence in students. In college, we are free from a strict disciplined environment like school. Discipline is very essential in school for students. It helps the students to finish their school with good marks and edifies the significant values of life. On the contrary, colleges don’t have strict rules as they are in school like wearing the same uniform, tugged-in shirts, or similar hairstyles for girls. In many colleges, there is no specific dress code for students. Here students don’t have the need to carry the burden of heavy bags filled with books lunch box or water bottles. College changes the way a student thinks, observes, or analyzes things. It gives them a different perspective compared to schools. When we join college we get a feeling of accomplishment. It’s another phase of life that is not less than a victory. College gives us an environment to interact with different students and different thinking. And it upsurges our confidence and understanding. In schools, we hesitate while answering questions and debates because we are not much confident. On the contrary in college, we get opportunities and exposure to our thinking. So, accounting above points, I believe that a college education is very essential for everyone to acquire new experiences and opportunities.
Now let’s put some light on how a college education develops a sense of responsibility. I was such a mess during my school days and had zero sense of responsibility. My parents used to scold me for my recklessness. I used to attend the classes but not every time listened to them carefully. That was the time when I used to least care about my career or future. When I entered college I started participating in infests, events and started exploring things. That was the time when I decide which career to choose and started preparing to achieve that goal. School education teaches us the basics but college education teaches us lessons of life and introduces us to the real world. A college education is completely different from a school education, the professors are not much concerned like school teachers did. They don’t force us to study, attend lectures, and do homework, etc. They just take the class, after that it’s all over us to learn it or not. And this way, we become responsible and start attending classes with interest. In school, we used to attend classes, study, do homework because we were afraid that teachers will scold or punish us for being defaulter. College education upskills us to learn independently in our subject of interest. It provides the freedom to choose the subject of our interest. In this way, we develop a sense of responsibility towards our studies career, and future.
A college education gives us the freedom to choose our own path and career. In college, we meet different people from different cultures, regions, and mindsets who are alike in some aspects. In college, we come across various things to analysis such as classmates who come from different areas and cultures. Some of them are brilliant in subjects, some of them are great in sports, leadership and some have a good grip on programming. So, we get a perception that no matter how brilliant or bright we’re in the subjects, but there are other people too, who are sharp in other fields. Here we get an environment to compete. The consciousness of competition helps us to achieve our goals and be the best. When we see people with similar interests and hobbies, we get attracted. People with similar interests create a company.
Here I want to share my experience, I was interested in the writing and coding area and I found some friends with the same interest and we shared our career aspects and knowledge with each other. There were many other students who were interested in singing, dancing, sports, and other activities. Our college had different activity clubs for the students in their interested areas. They joined the club of their interest where they shared their opinions and ideas. When we connect to the person of our interest and share each other’s opinions it helps to improve and have a grip on communication skills. In this way, a college education provides knowledge about career and life and communication skills.
At last, I want to conclude that a college education helps us to analyze the companies we keep and then we know which company will benefit us in the long run. It encourages students to grow high and accomplish their goals with the proper guidance of a mentor. It teaches and upskills us the practical lessons of life which nobody can teach us. It trains us how to survive and cope up with the real world by providing us practical and theoretical knowledge. It also upskills how to sustain and headway in life.
