In my opinion college is beneficial if you get a degree in something that holds a higher ROI and can help advance your career. You'll get out of it as much as you put into it. So to answer your two questions:
1. No, it's not mandatory for the IT field. However, a lot of jobs do like to see a degree. Particularly, those jobs that are in management.
2. This one's easy ... if you're going to continue with college you'll have to write papers. If you decide not to go to college you can learn on your own and get certs. OR you could go to college and learn on your own to get certs.
