Do you think college is too expensive? Well 75% of Americans do. The tuition is a huge factor for a lot of people looking into colleges. Yes, there are scholarships and loans to assist you along your college path but sometimes scholarships aren’t enough or loans get too expensive.

When deciding on going to college, you shouldn’t only think about the cost but the entire college experience. It will help you develop your skill set and give you the opportunity to network in your field to assist you in your future career path. Over a career, a bachelor’s degree is worth $821,956 more than a high school diploma. That is 9.8 times the average cost of the degree; which means though it may be expensive at the moment, it will be beneficial in your future.
