Should You Quit College?

It really depends on what options you have out there OUTSIDE of college.

You should leave college if you have a better option and clearer direction in life. Otherwise, being lazy and staying at home and waking up whenever you feel like is not going to do you any good.


It also depends on what you don’t like about college:

  • structure? – uhhh, ok you’re gonna need that in life
  • education? – yeah…you don’t have to get this from college, but you’ll need it
  • discipline? – if you think going to college is hard, wait till you get a real job with a real boss who will fire you if you come to work late or do only 70% of your job instead of 100%
  • doing work you don’t care about? – again…try finding a job where you only have to do things you enjoy
  • waking up early? – again…try getting a real job


I think the most legit reasons for leaving college are:

  • it costs too much and you are unable to move to a cheaper college
  • you’ve found a paying job that gives you more knowledge and experience than being in college
  • the career you want to be in does not require or value a college degree
  • you are extremely self-motivated and know how to learn (through books, internet, friends, etc) on your own
  • you’re lazy – if this is the case, you should quit ASAP because no professor or fellow students should spend energy on you when you don’t even care to invest in yourself


While I do feel college is in many ways overrated, it does come with many benefits:

  • opportunities to socialize and meet people in a non-competitive setting and genuinely social setting (it will be very hard to do this later on in life)
  • opportunities to get exposed to different kinds of people and their passions
  • learn how to work with other people, different backgrounds, and gender
