Going on an epic college summer trip is the kind of thing that every college student should have a chance to experience. When you’re in college these should be the best years of your life. These are years where you work hard, but you know that all of that hard work will be rewarded with a college degree that can help you in the future. When you work as hard as you do during the school year, you owe it to yourself to relax and have a great time during the summer. Not a good time, you need to have a great time. While you’re probably looking forward to graduating in a few years, and you should be, what’s waiting for you after you graduate? The real world. The real-world means getting a job, paying your bills, and probably paying your student loans. That’s the pay off for your years of hard work earning your degree. Now, don’t take this as an indictment about getting a college degree. Sure, life’s going to be hard after you graduate, but it will be a lot harder if you don’t have an education.
