Make college an assumption. Prove it with a plan.

By Michael Roberts, Principal of Retail Marketing, The Vanguard Group

I can speak from experience about assumptions because I lived with a powerful one right from the start.

My parents both assumed that my siblings and I would go to college—no ifs or buts. Embedded in that assumption was an interesting balance that saw a college degree as a way to align the practical side of college with our other interests—all based on a love of learning. This twofold assumption gave my sisters, brother, and me the freedom to explore our passions. And, in a way, we all did just that, pursuing what we really wanted to do within the arts, medicine, theology, history, and law.
