What's the point of attending college?

The only subject I'm really interested in is mathematics. I'm good at  it, but I don't like being around people. I looked into entry-level careers  such as math-tutoring. Even those positions require a 4-year  bachelor's degree and only pay a few dollars above minimum-wage.  I don't get it.... show more The only subject I'm really interested in is mathematics.

I don't get it. What I'm asking is: what is the value of 
attending college if all it does is stress people out 
and the pay-off is so little in return? Why are companies
so demanding? Why do people think college makes 
you a better person? I think it turns you into a workaholic.
