Argumentative Essay
Dear Ben,
Hey Ben! I was talking with Sean yesterday when he told me the news, youÕre
planning to delay college. This came as a shock to me when I heard it. By
not attending college, you may get a yearÕs rest and a chance to think your
decisions through, but if you ever do decide to attend college, you will
miss out on a lot of opportunities as well. I think you should consider
going to college rather than driving the open road after High School.
The information youÕve learned in High School will be more fresh in your
mind now than 1 year from now. You have passed 12 years of schooling, yet
now you believe it is time to rest and see other places and people for a
year or more before attempting college. College adds 4 more years of intense
work, yet knowledge learned within High School can make learning new
material easier for you. Other people often find themselves getting
sidetracked once they put off the option to attend college, that can only
hinder your ability to eventually become a college graduate.
College can be a fun experience if shared with friends and people of similar
age. By waiting an extra year or two, you will find it more uncomfortable
within your classes. The entire college experience involves parties,
football games, and drinking beer with your buddies as well as an education.
As you get into the entire experience and enjoy college, you will understand
and appreciate what a college offers.
The ideal time for college is now more than ever as you also have
scholarships and your parents to help with the expensive money arrangement
which is needed. Parents can be a great help in paying for your college, and
may be willing to pay much more immediately after graduation from High
School, than paying 2 years afterwards. Scholarships are always helpful to
students, paying for a little bit of an expensive college. Although, to use
the scholarship, you must go immediately to college.
A College education right now is a lot more beneficial to you and your
future than you may realize. It can lead to earlier jobs with increased
salaries, better college experience, and scholarships to help pay for it
all. I hope the arguments I mentioned above help you to see the other side
of this situation and choose appropriately.
