Why go to college after high school?

You need better education to get a decent job. Without a college education, it's very hard to get a very good salary. Just getting an associates degree will increase your income. Furthermore, nowadays with a shortage of jobs, companies are much more likely to hire you if you have a college education than if you do not, even if the degree has nothing to do with what they're hiring you for. The degree shows that you're willing to put in the work necessary to accomplish something. So, going to college after high school will help whether you use the stuff you learn or not.
