You are told that to make it in life, you must go to college. You work hard to get there. You or your parents drain savings or take out huge loans to pay for it all.

And you end up learning ... not much.

A study of more than 2,300 undergraduates found 45 percent of students show no significant improvement in the key measures of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing by the end of their sophomore years....

College is what you make of it.

If you try hard at college and use all the available resources then its's certainly worthwhile. Plus having a degree gets you far, even if you didn't learn anything. It's a little unfair but thats how it works.
