Is College Worth The Cost

By: Alcides Hoy Jr.

Everybody when they hear the name of this post they ask Is This Writer Crazy? No Not at all. Sometimes we all think about the positives of college but we don't even realize if the money we invest is even worth it. Syracuse University next school year is going to be approximately 50,000 US dollars and at the year we have to ask ourselves are we getting the same education as a student in a 20,000 US dollar institution? Possibly. Everything financially seems to unbalanced when we look at how the salaries decrease but the price of college increases. In actually its as if we are paying for the name of school rather than the knowledge provided inside of those multimillion dollar buildings. In a recent chart produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you will see how college has increased drastically higher than living necessities such as medical and energy. At the end of the day we have to ask ourselves are we receiving in return what we pay for college?
