Here's Proof You Made The Right Decision In Going To College

If you're a recent college graduate, there's a good chance that you're feeling at least a little anxious as you take your next steps into adult life and the job market. But there's some good news: You're far better off having earned that degree throughout the last four years than not at all.

Emotional well-being startup Happify created a handy infographic with recent data about post-college life and the job market for new graduates. "Education, Striving for Success & Happiness" highlights several reasons why grads can be grateful for the time spent at their alma matters.

Thirty percent of Millennials surveyed said that meaningful work was the most important measure of their career success -- not the size of their paychecks -- and graduates from a handful of majors say they feel like they're making the world a better place.

Check out Happify's infographic below for more benefits of that hard-earned college degree.
