COLLEGE AWARENESS WEDNESDAY

Why should I go to college?

Make Connections.

In college, students make new friends and other connections that will be helpful when it’s time to get started in a career. Those friends they make in college will help them get jobs, and these connections and networks will help them throughout their lives.
