A little advice to those of you going off to college so you don’t end up like Stephanie Ritter selling your degree after graduation… If you’re going to waste 4 years of your life and spend/ get into debt of $50-$100K+ on a theater or some other useless liberal arts degree don’t expect to find a job after graduation. Jobs are and have been scarce with 93 million Americans out of the labor force, regardless of the Obama administrations claims of economic sunshine and rainbows.
By all means go to college if you’re seeking a career that requires a higher education be it in Law, Medicine, Science, Engineering etc. If the job you want doesn’t really require a higher education consider a 2 year school or better yet learn a skill or trade and spend that $100K on starting your own business! MANY successful business people (now billionaires) didn’t finish or get a college education! Google, for example, is now more interested in what you can do rather than where you studied.
