According to the Pew Research Center a college graduate who is working full time will earn about $17,500 more each year than their peers who do not have a college degree. Many companies won't even look at applicants that don't have a college degree, regardless of what subject the degree is in.
What opportunities will your child have because they successfully attend college?
Attending college is about so much more than just earning a degree and making more money. College provides opportunities for students to met others in their field, gives access to internships and work programs and the opportunity to find their tribe with peers who share the same passion they do.
