An investment in an Oregon community college education is a wise one! For every dollar students invest in an education at an Oregon community college, they will receive a cumulative value of $3.90 in higher future earnings in return — that’s an 18.8% rate of return! Compare that to the U.S. stock market’s 30-year average rate of return of 9.9%, and it’s easy to see why an investment in your community college education in Oregon is valuable! #CCMonth #oregonccawarenessmonth #orcommcolleges See MoreSee Less
