Why is College Important? 

When we talk about college, we mean any type of education or training after high school including 4-year Bachelor degrees, 2-year Associate's Degrees, certificates, apprenticeships and more.

Jobs increasingly require some type of education after high school. College graduates often have higher salaries and lower unemployment.

College allows students to experience new people and places, explore different areas of study, get involved with different organizations and discover their passions.
