Why College?

No matter what challenges you face, you can count on your education and degree to build a brighter future. By making the choice to complete a degree, credential, or certification at Mid, you'll be building skills, gaining self-confidence, connecting to a network of support, reaching for better opportunities, and experiencing economic benefits.

increase earning by more than $3000 per year!

Experience economic benefits. Associate degree holders are employed at a higher rate than those that don't have a degree according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By completing a degree, you're also likely to see an increase in wages. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that associate degree holders can earn, on average, $60 more each week than those who have some college, but no degree. That's an extra $3,120 each year!*

Reach for better opportunities. If you’re wondering “what might have been,” why not wonder instead “what might be?” Associate degrees and credentials pay off—often resulting in higher pay, higher job security, and higher satisfaction with the way you spend 40 hours a week.

Gain self-confidence. Completing a degree takes initiative, effort, and determination, and as you cross the Commencement stage you'll be confident you can pursue any opportunities that come your way. It's proven! Studies have shown that a greater sense of confidence is tied to greater career advancement. According to a study from the University of Melbourne [Science Daily], there's a strong correlation between confidence and success.

When His Plans Changed at 45-Years-Old, John Decided to Start Over. john-stories-adult-learners.jpg

For nine years, John worked for a company that he loved. He planned to retire there. But, in 2009, the plant that John worked for closed. At 45-years-old, he lost his job. But, he found something too.

He started over at Mid.

"I worked at a lot of jobs. I did a lot of different things in my life. I even tried to go to college in 1984, but I decided that it wasn't for me, so I quit," John remembers, " I've regretted that choice so many times, especially because I know now that I could have been successful in school. And, I could have had a different life."

After working in all of those jobs, John found employment in a factory where he loved working. He imagined that he'd finally landed a job for the long run. Instead, he was laid off after nine years. And, then, he needed to make a decision about where he would go next.

"Instead of feeling let down, I decided to do something and go back to school. Sure, I felt scared. I worried that I couldn't do it," says John. "But, I loved my time at Mid. The faculty and staff were so helpful that it was easy to make the transition."

In two years, John finished two certificate programs and earned an Associate's Degree in General Technology. His lowest grade was a B+. Because of his achievements, John received the Alumni of the Year Award from the Michigan Works! office that helped to finance his retraining.

John says that his time at Mid taught him a lot more than what he found in textbooks: "I worked hard and learned that education, like most things, is what you make of it. You go in expecting to fail, and you probably will. You plant your feet and work hard, and you can surprise yourself. At least, that's what I found."

John began an internship while he was still at Mid. That internship turned into a new career. He has been a fulltime machinist since September. And, he's thinking about continuing his education.

John's advice to others who are considering returning to college? "You can come back. It can be done. You'll surprise yourself and find out what you're really made of. I have two teenage daughters, and I don't know how I could have set a better example than this: I went to school. I did it."
