Are you College Material?

For many people college can be a wonderful experience. A time to meet new people and explore career options while finding themselves in the process. Yet while things might sound good on the outside, there are still people that fall into the label of not being considered college material. Which brings up the question, “Is there really such a thing as college material?”

In my own personal experience, I would say that growing up I never knew what I wanted to be as an adult. As a kid, I remember my teachers would always ask me, “Brooke, what do you want to be when you grow up?” I would never have an answer. Even when it came time for me to graduate from high school, I was still lost.

I somehow thought I was doing the right thing by deciding to go straight to community college, figuring it would help give me some guidance. After about a year and a half of going to school, I decided I needed a break, which ultimately led me to never return to school. I soon realized that school was simply not for me. I was going to college because it was what everyone else expected and wanted for me, and not what I truly wanted for myself.

So what determines if someone is college material or not is solely based on person to person. The world of college life can sometimes be a scary and unexpected place for many people. It is a life changing experience. I believe to truly succeed in college you need to have drive and determination. You have to have a strong mindset and self-discipline to make it through. Most of the time in school you are not going to have someone there to tell you to do your homework and turn in your assignments on time.

At the end of the day it is your responsibility to earn the grade because you are paying for your education. So for anyone who says that they are not college material, it is not necessarily mean a bad thing. If you aren’t serious about school, then why waste your time and money on it and have a pile of student loans and debt to pay off in the future?

The drive to get up everyday and attend your classes on time and do your work while having the determination to stick with it no matter how long it takes, is not something everyone is capable of, especially at eighteen. If it is forced upon a kid, it could end in disaster. While college is an educational institution, there are many vices and distractions.

If you are planning to go to college or are currently attending, make sure it is your decision and nobody else’s. Let’s face it, knowledge is power that should never be wasted or taken for granted. It should never be resented either. Take time to think about what you truly want and the STEPS you’re willing to take to achieve it.
