A college degree is more important now than ever before.
College graduates earn $30,000 more a year compared to those with no degree, according to a 2019 study. That adds up to a $1 million difference in lifetime earnings.
Those with a college degree were twice as likely to be employed in 2020.
College graduates are more likely to volunteer, vote in elections and have overall better health.
