    Attending college will give you benefits you might not see at the moment. Having that degree will be useful later on in your life. Sometimes even for certain jobs they might say you don't need college degree but in reality if you have it it could give you an advantage over the competition.

    But if you truely feel it's not working out, you could always go back later on in life and do something you like better.

    I think you're missing the big picture.  Armed with a mere high school degree, most 18 year olds have only a few options available to them (higher education, industry, or military service).  While there are many learning opportunities in industry and the military, higher education offers the most well-rounded education in the most nurturing environment possible.  I believe in life long learning in a supportive setting to develop a fully faceted individual.

    I think attending college was never not “worth it,” but it’s become even more important now to have a college degree in your possession. Not only does college education increase your employability, but it also boosts your earning potential. College education also makes it easier to climb the corporate ladder leading to greater job satisfaction. I would definitely vote for attending college. I would also suggest looking for programs that are career oriented and lead you straight in to a profession. You can find some such career-focused programs at CollegeAmerica Denver campus. Visit the college website for more info.
