“Higher education improves an individual’s quality of life. Studies show that, compared to high school graduates, college graduates have longer life spans, better access to health care, better dietary and health practices, greater economic stability and security, more prestigious employment and greater job satisfaction,” according to Dr. Heather Allen, a contributing writer to the blog Crosswalk. The most important things to me in this quote are: “… more prestigious employment and greater job satisfaction”.
In today’s world especially, it is very important to have a well-paying job because of all the economic problems that are going on today. Having a college degree opens up more opportunities for those who have one, in comparison to those who only possess only a high school diploma. I chose to attend college in order to further my education and to get a better paying job. Attending college will help me further my education. One of the things I wish to accomplish while attending Strayer University is getting better with writing.
I have never been good at writing papers because I find it difficult to find the words to express my thoughts. Before attending Strayer, I applied to Community College of Philadelphia but going to the campus while working and raising a child was virtually impossible. I decided to be a part of Strayer because the professors have the expertise and the resources that I may need to help me accomplish my objective of obtaining a criminal justice administration degree.
Earning a college degree in criminal justice administration will enable me to have a successful career as a police officer. With a degree, I can have my ideal job and I can earn a salary that will enable me to taking family trips, planning my wedding, sending my son to a private school, and buying a new home. All of these things will happen as result in me having a well-paying job. In conclusion, going back to school and especially choosing Strayer, can both help me become a better writer and help me get a well-paying job.
