If you’ve made getting a college education one of your life goals, it’s not too late to enroll at Lassen Community College. Classes begin next week, Monday, Aug. 20.

Regardless of your interest — studying a trade in vocational classes, earning a certificate or associate’s degree, completing the first two years of a bachelor’s degree or graduate study or just enriching yourself with a little extra knowledge, LCC is a great place to start because the college up the hill offers everything you need to take that first step in reaching your dreams.

Gaining an education has many benefits, and the simple truth is college graduates earn more money in the workplace.

Consider this — the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce reports that individuals who only finish high school will earn about $1.3 million over their lifetime. With some college, that amount increases to about $1.6 million. Someone with an associate’s degree will earn about $1.7 million, and bachelor’s degree holders will earn about $2.3 million. Those who earn advanced degrees can earn as much as $3.6 million.

College graduates can also enjoy more job opportunities, better employment benefits, higher job satisfaction, greater job stability and increased well-being within their families.

Now’s the time for you take to take that first step into the future. It’s time to invest in yourself and get started. There’s no time to waste — classes begin Monday.
