    Default Creative Writing?

    Hello friends, I've an essay on "Why go to university" in which there are maybe some mistakes, I think, So please help me in correcting them and also tell me that is this called "Creative writing" ?

    I strongly believe that everyone should attend university.Entering university at the same time a so promising step in to a world of opportunities as long as it is accompanied by a strong will and desire.The quality and diversity and spread spectrum of choices higher education can provide us in the core motive for everyone intending to attend university. I will try to examine below some specific reason according to which I think are the most common viewpoints nowadays.

    First, let us look what a person can typically gain in a university it's a diploma and degree.This by default leading to a more distinct, respected and well-paid profession.The unemployment crises are troubling all the countries of the world, not only the poor countries but developed western countries as well. So, the ease of finding a job may play an important role in the decision people are making,

    Another important reason is that people want to get more education and university provides a higher level of education and has all these facilities and resources for people who crave knowledge. Learning is a key to improve anything you want.Higher education helps us in widen our understanding and increase our intellectual ability.

    Apart from the point I made above there also a well-known fashion called career preparation, many people attend university in order to either a career in science and technology or a career in business. It's believed that the opportunities, ideas, in-depth-knowledge, facilities and higher education in science areas often intending to attend university imperatively.Many times a four-year study at a university may only the beginning of a sequence of moves someone can make in order to accomplish what he thinks best for his career.

    Finally, I would like to say that anyone can find many reasons to attend university, reason may based on his wants.

    This was a difficult assignment because there are only two reasons to attend a university:

    1) to acquire abstract knowledge
    2) to prepare for a profession

    Making four paragraphs out of these self-evident points is a challenge. That's why this essay is almost nothing but padding.

    If this were my assignment, I'd be stumped too.

    Possibly you can beef it up a little with some data:
    - the increase in college admissions since WWII
    - the lifetime earning differential between college grads and non-grads
    - the shift from abstract studies (such as philosophy) to science and technical studies
    - the debate over using universities for vocational education and job training (such as for nurses, teachers, technicians)
    - the shift in the demographics of who graduates in what fields since WWII
    - the number of university seats as a function of the nation's wealth
    - the number of grads as a cause of a nation's wealth

    Best wishes in your studies.
