Several decades ago, only a few selected people were able to enter college
or university. In other words, it was quite rare to find those who completed a Bachelor's degree
or even attended college. However, there has been a drastic change in our society--especially
people's point of view toward education. Accordingly, the number of people who are attending college or finished their study in college has increased
over the past decades. These people go to college for
To begin with, people attend college to get
a better job. In the past, there were only a few jobs
for someone who specialized in a certain area for the company or factory. Workers were required
to do very simple tasks which didn't need any complicated skills.

, these kinds of simple, mundane tasks
have been replaced by machines.
Therefore, large corporations and
even small companies want a person who is capable of completing somewhat more sophisticated jobs, the skills for
which can be obtained from a college education. [delete "That is why people go to college in order to satisfy companies' demand, so they could get a job after graduation." - this is repetitive and unnecessary.]
Another reason for attending college is because of a
strong personal desire for learning. That is, people just want to learn something more deeply, which they are especially interested in. It is personal choice derived from one's innate desire. Unlike high school, people are taught one specific area as their major. Ultimately, it would help to expand their knowledge as well as to allow them to study what they really want. With increased knowledge, they become more confident and their self-esteem would be higher
As mentioned before, people choose to go to college with various reasons. One reason can be for getting a job by satisfying a company's needs
. Another reason can be a personal desire for further learning. Regardless of their reasons, it is very meaningful that the opportunity for education has become more open to more people so that they become more
highly educated than in
the past. It is no wonder that our society would be increasingly developed in positive ways
as many educated people strive to make it better.
