How important is finishing college to you? They say that a good education is akin to a good future and I believe in that saying. Many people strive hard in order to finish college and land a good job when they finish school. This is very important especially nowadays when one must have at least a college experience before being accepted to a good job.

I believe that education is a very important part of my life. It is one of my top priorities to finish college. I think that in order to find a decent job, one needs a college degree. I also think that the knowledge we learn from college can be applied to other aspects of our lives. I think that college is a very important step in determining my future and just how far I will go.

Well said surveytaker. I'm glad you value education that much too. Some people think education doesn't matter for as long as they have money.

It's not that important to me. My jobs are quite different from what I learned in college. But it's a good experience in college.

Not only is it important to have a good education, it's just as important to have marketable skills. You don't want to graduate from college with some obscure degree that doesn't help you land a good job. I was laid off from my job last month and, since there are no opportunities for me right now, I am taking advantage of the situation and am in the process of trying to go back to college to finish my degree. I have been admitted but I don't know if I will be able to work out a class schedule I'll be happy with. The campus is about an hour away so I don't want to drive out there every day and would like to take a couple of online classes if I can. I'm doing a dual enrollment so that I will have two fields to get into once I graduate.

Often a good education is confused with a degree and a certificate. I know a certificate is important to land a job, but are you really educated if you have a good degree? i find many people with lofty degrees from renowned colleges, who are not as knowledgable as people with lesser degrees. Knowledge comes with reading. Those who read a lot,whether they have a degree or not, they have much better knowledge.
