Does he look happy to you?
While that's the goal, it is a goal that most college students will never achieve.

|The best way to learn about the world.|
According to the logic of college enthusiasts, the best way to learn about the world isn't to buy a plane ticket and, say, see the world firsthand. Rather, the path to worldliness requires you to pay tens of thousands of dollars in tuition, to spend your nights reading theoretical texts that explain how the brightest scholars think the world works, and to spit all of this newfound knowledge out for your midterm and final exams.
I don't know about you, but I think that a plane ticket is probably the better way to learn about the world.

|"R-E-S-P-E-C-T. You can't get it with a college degree."|
While the passion for knowledge is what drives some people to attend college (See Reason 1), the desire for prestige is another strong motivator. Many college aspirants pursue a bachelor's degree simply because they believe that possessing a degree will make them seem more intelligent, interesting, or ambitious. Some people hope that by majoring in fields like political science, they'll become the go-to guy whenever their friends want to resolve a heated political argument.
However, this perception couldn't be further from the truth. As college is becoming more accessible to the public, the awe factor of attending a four-year university is going down. The respect that others have for the knowledge you will obtain over those four (or possibly six) years will be nonexistent. And as a result, it will take far more than a college degree to boost your social status among your peers.

New state-of-the art sports stadium: $250 million
The quality of your education going down the drain: Priceless
Do you care about the quality of academics at your school?
Did you apply to college to get away from those annoying jocks and cheerleaders in high school?
Do you spend more time at the library than at the gym?
Do you believe that higher education should be about more than tailgating, bonfires, and fuzzy school mascots?
Then do yourself a favor and don't go to college.
