Why Go to College?
为什么上大学?
With all of the talk that a student must hear about getting ready for college, some students may raise the pertinent question, 'Why go to college in the first place?' It is a very important question that has different answers for different people. The three main reasons for attending college are increased pay, higher education, and the college experience. Some students will go to college for one, two, or all of these reasons. It really depends on the individual.
在一个学生听说过的所有关于为大学做准备的话题中,(纠结这句话,另一种翻译:在所有话题中,一个学生一定听过关于为上大学做准备的话题{是个学生必然会听到各种人对他说要好好准备考大学,}一些学生可能会提出相关的问题,“首先为什么要上大学?”这是一个十分重要的问题,不同的人会有不同的回答。上大学主要有三个原因:增加工资,高等教育和大学经验。有的人上大学可能是因为其中1个,2个或者是所有的原因,这个因人而异。

First is higher pay. Studies have shown that a person with a college degree will make about 80 percent more than a person with just a high school degree. That is almost twice as much. For example, the average high school graduate without any college education makes around $37,000. The average college graduate makes around $66,000. Of course, this is just the average. 
首先是较高的工资。研究表明,一个获得大学文凭的人要比仅获得高中文凭的人多赚80%,{将近2倍}。举个例子,没有任何大学教育的高中毕业生均收入37000美元,而大学生均收入66000美元。当然,这只是就均收入角度而言。
Some graduates will make less, and others will make much more. There is no guarantee that a college graduate will obtain a high-paying job. On the other hand, nothing says that a person with only a high school degree cannot make a very good living and be satisfied with his or her career. Odds are, however, if you want to make more money at your future job, going to college is the practical choice.
一些毕业生会赚得更少,另一些会赚得更多。没有任何保证说大学生将会得到高薪工作,相对地,一个仅有高中文凭的人可以过得很好,有满意的事业。然而,如果你想在将来的工作中赚更多的钱,上大学(想必是一个实在(可行)的选择。

一直想找某某读书节上推荐《上大学为了什么》,结果只有中文译文的,于是网上找到了这个小短文。查了一下,好像出自一个美国学生所写,貌似是一篇老早就有的文章了原文网址:http://www.studyguidezone.com/gotocollege.htm
