THE COLLEGE ADVANTAGE

Why College?

This is the most common question that a lot of students ask themselves when determining if a college education is right for them.  You might find yourself asking the same question along with any of the following questions:

What is the biggest advantage a student can experience from attending college and receiving their degree?  Should I apply to a well-known University or a community college?  What about trade schools?  Where will I live? Where will I work?

To help you answer these questions, the American Indian Graduate Center has put together this resource guide to help you take the next steps in your educational journey!

“As a full-time student in leadership positions, I have learned to balance multiple priorities and complete tasks in a timely manner. Further, I have gained increased exposure to other tribal nations, which has expanded my cultural knowledge. I could not have reached my accomplishments without the help of my family, friends, American Indian communities, and AIGC.”Katelynn Pipestem
