College “Education”

Humanities majors may well learn a great deal about the world. But they don`t really learn career skills through their studies. Engineering majors, conversely, learn in great technical detail. But they might not learn why, how, or where they should apply their skills in the workforce. The best students, workers, and thinkers will integrate these questions into a cohesive narrative.

—Peter Theil, Zero to One.

I believe that college should be about making more well-rounded people rather than being skilled and having one set career path. As engineering major, I never asked why I am learning certain principals, theories, and never questioned how I would apply my skills.

Why Poor Students Should Not Drop Out

College is the best default option if you don’t know what you want to do.  It keeps you on the level with everyone else and it gives you a certification that sets you apart from people that didn’t go to college. People who are doing poorly in college should not drop out. College is like life in the fact that you have to figure out the system to get the most out of and do the best at. If you fail at college then you will fail in life because you are not addressing the root cause of your issues.
