Many people go to college because they want the education that they receive in school to be useful in becoming qualified to work in the field they went to college for. But their are others who just go to college for the experience, having no intentions in gaining employment in the field they studied in college once they graduate. If going to college was economically cheap, then I could see people doing this. However, as we all know, going to college in America these days is anything but inexpensive. I have friends who paid tens of thousands of dollars per year in order to attend college. So with that said, I think it's foolish to go to college if you have no intentions of using your college degree.
