Higher wages and more job opportunities are some of the benefits of going to college. Other benefits include better interpersonal skills and healthier lifestyles.
College graduates who have earned a bachelor's degree or higher make more money per year than people who have no, or little college education. They also have an easier time finding jobs, with many professions requiring some type of college degree. College graduates are also more prepared for the tasks that many jobs require. Due to the socialization process that takes place during college, they often have more social skills and can better maintain personal and professional relationships.
