SO the story is i've been at my currentjob for 2 yrs now and have always wanted to go back to college, people at work have been really nice to me and i dont want it to turn nasty or anything, any suggestions as to how to let it out gently, so to speak????

    Be professional because you never know if someday you might come across some of those people and need them or work with them again.

    Type up a letter to your boss saying that you want to thank them for the opportunity to work for/with them for the past two years but you will be resigning effective (whatever you want your last day to be) ((also try to give two weeks notice unless you absolutely can't)).

    Walk into your boss' office when it's quiet and hand it to him/her and if they ask you for details, avoid giving them in case they go nuts and try to sabotage your new job or whatever. But stress that you loved working there but you have to seize opportunities when they come.

    If they respond really well--ask for a recommendation!

    Good luck.

    Do a two weeks notice, it seems like a lot but this is the norm at most places. Just tell them the truth that you feel you want to be better educated to have opportunities for your career path. Good luck I just did that to a job that i had invested five years into. The company wasn't going the way i wanted. It was retail and now i work in insurance, quite the difference but it is a good change.

    Be professional. Give a written 2-weeks notice. It is perfectly acceptable to let your employer know that you are going back to school. Good Luck.

    If you tell your employer that you are leaving to go back to college I'm sure he or she will be impressed. It is a positive change so approach it that way. I can't imagine why you would think it would get nasty.

    Yep, tell your boss it has been a pleasure working with them and how much you have learnt. Give your two weeks notice or whatever is required.

    Thanks for the job. I need to further my education. That is unless you can see your way to a small raise to entice me to stay. Let's say 25K a year?

    OMG! Don't quit! Make him fire you, that way you can collect unemployment. Like, don't get your work done, or slack off or whatever.
