More and more university grads coming to college

A rising number of university grads are enrolling in colleges to get hands-on, practical training and thus a better chance of finding work, reports the Chronicle of Higher Education. Ann Buller, president of Toronto's Centennial College, is quoted as saying:

"A university degree used to be an entree to a job. [Employers] didn't care if your degree was in archaeology—they'd take you into the accounting firm and train you for the job. Their university degree means they have a good, solid education but not necessarily something that translates easily into a job. We can help them discover their passion."
How about you? Why did you decide to come to college?
