The value of educated life

Education is highly valued in our society, we tend to put people with a higher education on a pedestal. I mean why not? They know more because they've been schooled longer. In my opinion learning doesn't happen in the classroom, it happens through real world experiences. Although, you can't get a job from what you've learned through your own mistake, so we go to school, some go for their love of learning, others go to get an education for a good job, or even because it seems socially unacceptable to not attend a college. I happen to be one of the people that come to a college to get a good job, well my dream job. I didn't come to Wartburg for psychology program, I came because of the homely feel. I love that everyone is friendly and the professor care about their students. I came to Wartburg because I could see myself here. I chose to go to a college because I know I need a college education if I ever want to achieve my dreams of working for the FBI and also because the thought of not going to college never crossed my mind. So yes I think we learn more from ourselves than from teachers, but I also understand that in order to obtain my goals I needed to attend a college to further my education.

  1. In reality, we are all here to further our education. The second part though is that now you're here, what will you do with your time and opportunities?
