Three good reasons for learning how to write college papers

What is the point of writing college papers?

As a student you most probably are not too over-exited by the prospect of writing a college paper. You might feel overwhelmed and ask yourself: what is the point? I am not going to be a researcher or teacher anyway…Well there are three good reasons to learn this skill anyway:

Reason 1: Research is everywhere
In our age of information, research is everywhere. This means that the professional world is requiring doctors, business executives, lawyers, civil servants and other professions to find information, evaluate it and report about it. All these actions you do learn by writing a college paper.

Reason 2: It is a learning experience
Learning to write papers during college has the unique benefit that you are allowed to make mistakes. Mistakes don’t get you fired, but just lower grades. So, as long as you are in college, write as much as possible and benefit from the honest feedback you get.

Reason 3: You can use the skills even in daily life
You might not realise this, but you do research almost every day. Think about it. Did you recently look for a cell phone plan with the lowest cost? Or did you look for a cheap place to stay for Spring Break? Most probably this involved in digging up information (different plans), need to accomplish your goal (savings). This is exactly what the point is of a college paper: collecting information to solve a problem or answer a question.
