Letter Re: College


I live in Utah. I am in my senior year of high school, and I have many choices ahead of me. I’ve been accepted to attend Utah State University to study ranch management. I am very happy about this, but I am worried if those four years of school should go toward prepping? I have been saving for most of my life and have enough money to get myself through school debt free. However, I could buy a small farm with that money and prep. What direction would you recommend for me to take? Thanks T.B.

Hugh replies: This is becoming more of an issue as the economic situation worsens. Only you can make the decision of what is right for your situation, but some ideas for you can be found in the past articles and letters of SurvivalBlog. In any case, college should only be considered when you have a clearly defined objective.
