This is a tough comment to hear from students.

Going to college to get away from your parents is like going to prison to get away from the police. Sure… you’re away from them but you’ve got a whole new set of problems to worry about. Actually… it’s like that with an extra 40 thousand dollars in debt.

You should not be considering going to college to get away from home. If you want to get away from home then there are plenty of cheaper alternatives than college. There are apartments. There are cars. There are bridges to sleep under. I say this only partially kidding. I’ve spent some nights sleeping in awfully uncomfortable places. There are better. smarter, and cheaper ways to get away.

(More importantly, if you’re going to college with the partial intention of getting away from your parents remember this. Longer distance just means longer visits from your parents. Shorter distance means they’ll visit more often. The best distance would probably be a day drive where they’d drive their to visit for a couple hours but drive right on home after. It’s massively inconvenient for them but it’s not worth them staying multiple days. Note: I’ve been informed I stole that theory.)

Anyway, college as an investment in your future is a good idea in most cases. College only works okay as a place to party, get away from your parents, or learn about the ways of the world. On top of that people are willing to get you tens of thousands of dollars in debt for it. If those are your goals then I might recommend world travel.

There’s nothing like partying with people that don’t speak your language while drinking drinks for a fraction on the dollar. More importantly, you no one will be stupid enough to loan you tens of thousands of dollars to do it. That means you get to learn to earn and spend wisely.

    The cool thing about college is that allows you to get away from parents while you gain knowledge and chances for a better job. It’s a cool experience, plus you kill two birds with one stone. I would honestly recommend at least trying going to college! You never know if it won’t be an life-changing experience.
