If graduates make successful careers and reach top positions in our society, it gives an educational institution a prime position on the market. On the top of that, we live in an era of numbers. Statistics who do not have anything better to do conduct various studies, such as how many percent of graduates from particular college got employment after the end of their study.
All of these things create a reputation of the college and after all decide if it is successful or not (direct and indirect impact). Therefor, you need to present yourself as a responsible individual, who has goals and knows what he wants to accomplish in life.

That’s why I chose to study at the college and play college league firstly.
