When you get to college, there are these classes called "gen eds"—your general education requirements for graduation. These include credit hours in math, science, etc. Even though these classes won't go toward your major, you can still get important information from them, so don't just sign up for any random class. One that I personally believe every college student should take is an American Government class, and here are six reasons why.

1. Because the American governmental system is insane.


2. You'll learn the importance of voting, because sadly, the general public doesn't understand.


3. You'll learn what powers the POTUS was given in the Constitution.

4. You'll find out what political parties really are and what role they actually play in politics.

5. There is no such thing as "not being political," because politics control our lives.

6. You grow sympathy for the people who run this country, because (if you agree with them or not) they make some tough calls.
