Should everyone get a college education?
Many people are enrolled in colleges and universities across the world. They decide to go to school to acquire a prominent career and to further their education. The outcome of going to college will be beneficial to how they live their life, such as; a higher paying job, being able to provide for their families and a more prominent status in a career of their choice.
It is frustrating to look for a job without a decent education. Employers want to hire people that are going to be beneficial for the company, diligent in their work and take responsibility for their actions. If he/ she had not gone to college but had a wonderful character, the company would have difficulty in the hiring process due to the fact that he/ she do not know if the person is reliable. Many people are now realizing that education is important in locating a successful and stable career.
Many people fear they will be alone in figuring out their college career, but there are teachers, counselors, friends and family to help him/ her. All they have to do is ask. Do not be shy. If he/ she feel that their grades are not acceptable, ask a teacher what can be done to raise it. Do not give up on having a furthered education. There are teachers for a reason, to help and guide a student through school.
There are many reasons to not go to college, but there are also a lot of reasons to go. To obtain a career he/ she need to obtain an education. Anyone can decide to go to a college or university they just have to put their mind to it.

ShouldEveryone Attend College?
In Charles Murray’s work “Are Too Many People Going to College”, first published in The American September 8, 2008, he asks that very vital question: Are too many attending college? To fully grasp what is meant by this question one must take into account all major factors of a collegeeducation and career opportunities elsewhere. Murray believes that, “To ask whether too many people are going to college requires us to think about the importance and nature of liberal education” (222). The author states that the knowledge many students strive to learn in college is something that should already be known. According to Murray, “K-8 are the right years to teach the core knowledge” (224). In other words, Murray is saying that liberal arts should have had a strong foundation starting in elementary school, so by the time one who still needs to pursue college will be able to grasp the harder material. Even so, Murray suggests all people who have the academic ability should not try to get a liberal arts collegeeducation. Many people who have the intelligence to understand the material presented to them, may not enjoy actually doing the work. (227) Another valid...

ShouldCollege Be for Everyone
What is the purpose to be a student in college? Getting into university regarded as the best option after graduating from high school. But not everyone has ability to finish up four-year course of college. Even graduated from university, it doesn’t mean the nice job and perfect income. “Each decade, 30 million graduate from high school but only 6 million receive a college degree.”(Buffenbarger) Part of them can not be accepted by college, and others drop out half way of university. Even though graduated from university, the number of graduated students is over the satisfaction of society， which means there are no enough vacations to offer to graduates. If college is for everyone, the education level of society will upgrade. However, over number of graduates will place a huge burden on society because of the increasing percentage of unemployment and also cause several negative effects.
There are several reasons for getting into college for almost people. From almost people’s view, getting into the university is serviced for making money in the future. “After World War II, the United States economy promised middle-class jobs to high school graduates. As late as the 1970s, more than 70 percent of middle-class jobs...
...Should Every Student Go to College?
Now a days there’s a lot of pressure for high school graduates to further their education by attending college. Hard evidence states that more high school graduates attend college immediately after graduation compared to any other generation. However, college may seem more of a challenge to some rather than others whom may “need” vocational school. Getting aneducation is important but some say college isn’t for everyone. In the article “What’s Wrong with Vocational School?” Charles Murray says that not every student is mentally suitable for college and vocational school would prepare them for the vigorous academic demands that come along with college. To critically analyze if this argument is effective in it’s ways, there are parts that one would have to look into and compare to opposing essays to expose weaknesses and strengths in his argument. In a Critical analyzer’s view, one would want to look to see if the writer backed up their statements with evidence in order to persuade the target audience. Analyses also call for doing background research of the author, which could sway the reader to believe some aspects of the argument and doubt others. Overall, the job of a Critical/Analytical Reader is to look at the logical fallacies and strong points the author make to conclude weather...
Should we make divorce harder to get?
Growing up as a child, the first words that is often learned is “Mommy and Daddy”. These two groups of individuals are there to help grow and nurture the child for their well-being. Unfortunately, many parents are dealing or have dealt with the consequences of a divorce. Rich believes that about 40% of couples that divorce proceed on having one or both of them to reconcile, yet it effects certain areas in their lives. All of these situations can put harm towards the children, family and themselves.
Along with several studies by Scott and Arkowitz, most adults who were children of divorce experience serious problems such as depression and relationship issues. Several of those parents remain in an unhappy marriage because they believe it will protect their offspring from a divorce trauma. After the separation of both parents, children tend to have a poor adjustment dealing with high levels of conflicts between their parents. Only a minority of kids suffer longer than the vast majority of children that really undergo divorce well.
Additionally, considering that a lot of the 1.5 children in the U.S. whose parents have divorced feels as if their worlds were falling apart. Scott believes that a numerous amount of children experience short-term negative effects, especially in cases of anxiety, anger, shock and disbelief. Children are often unprepared when they are told about the upcoming news upon a...

Benefits of a CollegeEducation
Going to college is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. College is where many people make the decisions that will mold them for the rest of their lives. In college you meet the people who will leave the biggest impressions on your future. Challenges in college will make a person question life. When will you graduate? How will you make more money than when you started? These challenges are what will shape and form students into the new working generation. So what exactly is a challenge?
A challenge is defined as something that by nature or character calls forth special effort. This is a reason why college is beneficial: it challenges you. It expands the normal range of thought. By influencing a person to think different thoughts. How does this pertain to higher educational learning? Say a student is taking a first level Spanish class, and they walk in to realize that the teacher speaks only in Spanish. What should they do? Or when a student is late for class but their teachers locks the door on late students. What should they do? These situations are common amongst college age student’s whether at work or in school. The way that these students handle these situations will determine how they deal with situation throughout the rest of...
...Student Athletes Deserve More than Scholarships
A Look into the Finances of Major College Sports Programs Student-athletes at major Division I-A colleges and universities do more than attend classes, practices, and compete against other teams. They generate revenue. Intercollegiate sports have developed into a highly specialized, multi-million dollar entertainment industry that rides on the shoulders of student-athletes. This industry has in turn resulted in substantial rewards for big time athletic programs and the NCAA. According to an NCAA survey conducted in 1998, sixty-seven percent of Division I-A football programs showed an average profit of $3.9 million with many of the largest programs far exceeding that figure (Netzley). Add in revenue from other sports and the NCAA took in $267 million in 1997-1998 (NCAA). Universities do not hide the importance they place on successful sports programs. In 1997, Steve Spurrier, head football coach at the University of Florida, signed a six-year contract that averaged $2 million per year. In addition to his $2 million annual salary, Spurrier was given two new cars, a generous clothing allowance and 24 prime tickets for each Gators home game. The deal also included incentives that would take effect when specific goals set forth in the contract are achieved (Martinez). He can earn $99,000 for winning another national championship. He can earn the equivalent of one month of his base salary for getting...
Paying College Athletes: Unsportsmanlike
A common American dream that is becoming more and more popular is the fantasy of playing collegiate and possibly professional sports. Today’s youth dream of being the best there ever was to play the game, and dedicate hours on hours to achieve that goal. Dedication of time is what gives this dream a chance. College athletes spend multiple hours a day practicing, whether it be actual practice or spending time in the weight room to be physically prepared for the season. If one is very serious about becoming the best athlete he can possibly be, working to be the best becomes a job, in essence. College athletes work tremendously hard and they deserve endless respect. With that being said I do not think that college athletes should receive money from their school, but I absolutely believe they should be allowed to make money in other ways such as selling memorabilia without NCAA regulations.
Major Division I athletic programs are capable of giving out full-ride scholarships, and if they cannot do that they still have large cash amounts to give to their athletes. This is possible because the school earns tens and sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars in athletics alone. For example, the University of Michigan football team brought in $85.2 million dollars in the 2011-2012 campaign, third most among football teams in the nation...
... Shouldcollege athletes get paid?
Over the past few years, one of the greatest debates has been whether student-athletes should be paid as if they were professional athletes. I strongly stand behind the belief that student-athletes should not get paid. Majority of college athletes are trying to get to the pros, with that being said they have not reached that level yet, so why should they get paid as they were a professional? Being involved in a college athletic program is just another stepping stone to your ultimate goal of reaching the pro level. There are strict NCAA sanctions to be imposed upon anyone caught receiving bribes money or gifts of any kind. There are several notable scenarios where college athletes have received money or benefits illegally, players such as Reggie Bush (USC), Terrelle Pryor (Ohio State) and several Miami Hurricanes players. These athletes were disciplined by the NCAA, and all college accomplishments were vacated, almost like they never attended the university. A college athlete should be focused and committed to his/her sport and perfecting there craft not to as which school pays more or will my check be late.
There are many reasons why college athletes should not be paid and one of them is...
