Is College Worth It?

I often think about whether college was worth the experience. For one thing, I’m paying off thousands of dollars in student loans. There are also all the health ramifications of college that don’t always get talked about.

That being said, I had a great time in college, and I wouldn’t have met my best friend if I hadn’t gone.  I gained a lot of networking experience and general knowledge. My college degree did help me obtain my current job, though I don’t think the things I learned in college are necessary to perform my job.

I go back and forth. There’s no use regretting what is already done, but I wouldn’t recommend spending money on college unless you have specific goals you want to accomplish that require a degree. I would finish college as quickly and cheaply as possible while still accomplishing those goals.

What are your thoughts? Is college worth it?
