Why do colleges look like resorts? College not worth the risk for success.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Big To Fail.”

Too Big To Fail
Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).

I wish I could go to school to be a doctor and not fail. Gaurenteed success does not exist though and is a fantasy. Success only comes from hard work, risk, and perseverance.

I am not sure that going to college is worth the hard work and money and it seems to be more about taking your money. One college in my state offers a fitness center, bowling alley, concert venue, swimming pools and jacuzzi’s with beautiful landscaping all around including large palm trees. It sort of looks more like vacation than a place of learning. Even after paying thousands of dollars for a degree you are not entitled to earn a certain amount of money or to even find a job for what you went to school for. Another thing thing that devalues your education is when everyone else has an education too. You no longer stand out. Some employers even prefer to hire those with no education in certain areas as they do not feel they are too good to mop a floor or feel entitled. Just because you went to school to be a manager doesn’t mean you get to stand around telling other people to work.
