All About College



People celebrating graduating college.

College is all everyone thinks of when they think of after High school. Well most people think of it, Some people go straight into the workforce while others go into Military. So I’ve decided to write about how a lot of these people may go to college, but who actually graduates and what makes someone not graduate. First off, One thing I’ve always wondered is although a lot of people go to college how many people actually graduate from college, and is it dependent on their degree?. So I’m Writing This article so we can go in depth about these questions. According to my research,  In 2011 60% completed a bachelor’s degree of people that intended to have a bachelor’s degree, so this means that although a lot of people intend to go that far only a little bit more than half actually do it.

It is also known that the female rate is higher than the male rate of graduating college. During the year 2015-2016, 1,920,718 Americans graduated with a bachelors degree and that same year 785,595 earned there Master’s degree. 58% of these graduates were women and 42% were men. This means that fifty eight percent of the 2015-2016 years graduates from high school graduated college. This also means only 58% graduated, but every year the number of people graduating from college increases. It is estimated that for the 2019-2020 year there will be an increase of 6 million students that will graduate compared to 2015-2016. This shows how we’ve been growing and being educated so although we are only at really fifty percent or more we will keep growing and we just need to focus on that, we don’t need to focus on how we are going to do it just do it and if you fail to try again one thing that some of these college students have alike is that most of them gave up when going for there dream, so all we can do is try our best and never give up.
