Why University is So Important in Life
Universities help students to learn new skills and allow them to meet new people. Education is not the only perk of a good university, as it offers much more than that. A Bachelor's degree helps in learning communication skills, along with other life skills. University offers different facilities like the student union, swimming pool, gym, and many more. The university provides a learning environment that helps in learning things in a fun way. Moreover, it offers a deep understanding of the emerging market needs in the digital world, as well as chances to travel abroad. Better chances of a sound job for a university bachelor is also an undeniable fact.
1) Education Helps in building Personal Identity
People around the world struggle for their name throughout life. They are marginalized and judged on their race, color, religion, and ethnicity. However, University education adds value to their identity. Having a university degree overcomes all those judgments. They are no longer judged or recognized based on their skin color, race, or ethnicity, but with their resume. Many people who are immigrants or refugees in other countries can get good social standing by a university degree, which can ensure them a good lifestyle by allowing them to get a good job.
2) Meeting New People
People argue that most of the information provided in a university degree is already available on the internet, then why invest so many dollars? Indeed, the internet is the home of knowledge, but it cannot give the environment to learn new things. University provides a feasible learning environment, which is not available while sitting in front of a computer screen. University offers insight to the students that help them filter out the correct information from the internet to convert it into solid knowledge.
3) Developing Skills
University teaches communication skills along with other skills like time management, social skills, and stress management. Being a university student, you learn how to manage time, stay patient, and improve productivity. Students also become confident after going through the whole four years of classroom experience. It helps them to fight with the new challenges of the digital world.
4) Developing Critical Mindset
University graduates are critical in thinking, and they look up to things in a strict manner, as university degree enables them to look at things scientifically. They are no longer following the societal norms blindly, yet they start raising questions.
5) Job opportunities
Having a university degree opens up doors for so many job opportunities. Many professions need a professional degree to join, like medicine, pharmacy, law, education, and engineering, thus having a university degree maximizes a person's chance to be employed.
University allows us to make life long friendships. It helps to boost our level of trust in other people. We also get to know the thought patterns of other individuals.
7) Foreign Trips
Universities offer several study trips to different countries that give life long experience, and I hope you would never want to miss the chance of traveling around the globe. These study trips are not only fun, but they also help in understanding the culture and market demands of other countries in case you are planning to immigrate.
8) Market Needs
Having an internet connection and computer is not enough to discover the world. Universities these days are offering certain degrees by considering market needs. For example, they are offering degrees in digital marketing because this is in demand these days, and this degree can help secure a good job in the future. Similarly, there are several other professional courses offered by universities to prepare adults for the future market.
9) Cultural & Social Experience
You can get enough information on google, but gaining cultural experience is highly beneficial, and universities are the places that offer cultural and social experience. We get to know people from all over the world. We participate in discussions and work in group projects, which helps us to be a successful person.
10) Academic Interest
There is no substitute for a bachelor's degree if you are highly interested in a subject. Bachelor's degree covers all the significant aspects of an academic field. For example, you are interested in English Literature, and you have joined a university. Most probably, they will tend to cover all the key aspects of English Literature, like famous writers, ages, and genres, along with different Literary Theories.
11) Prestigious Job
If you are a high school graduate, you have two choices. Firstly, you can try your luck in business in case you have money, but if you fall through, you can only go back to the small jobs. On the other hand, if you dare to invest in university education you have more chances of employment and the employment would be prestigious, which will give you a quality life. According to the national center for education statistics, In 2018, the employment rate was higher for those with higher levels of educational attainment.

This is how it OUGHT to work. Unfortunately, real life seldom works the way it ought to. You would be better off taking a year to learn some real skills, such as problem solving and sales, which will render most college degrees purely ornamental.
