    is college worth it?

    College can be very rewarding: receiving a degree, using it to get a decent job, and receiving a decent income. But, what about the endless debt that will take years to get rid of? The endless stress while in a college of passing classes and not wasting your time and money? The sadness that comes with spending 30,000-70,000 a year in college? Is a piece of paper with your name on it really worth all of it?

    Re: is college worth it?

    Hey!

    I often ask myself this question, but my education has really helped my personal growth (along with other benefits) and that alone has made it worth it for me. That being said, I don't think it should cost as much as it does to go to college. The debt that racks up is pretty absurd.

    Thanks for the forum!
