Over several decades, Greek life has been an integral part of colleges and universities throughout the United States. There is a high demand of “fitting in” in today’s society and a question that students, parents, and teachers alike often ask themselves is, “Does Greek life provide a more safe or harmful environment?” With strong evidence, it is absolutely absurd to believe that fraternities and sororities do more good than they do harm. Various statistics provide factual evidence as to why Greek life is a toxic and dangerous environment for many young adults. Between the rape culture, hazing, and delinquency linked to the students associated with Greek life, it is time that it comes to an end for good so that students may have a more safe and enjoyable college experience. Fraternities and Sororities should be banned off of college and university campuses due to the danger and drama associated with them.
The Camden County College sits in the heart of Gloucester County NJ, It is one of the better schools in the area and has been established since 1967. The school is accessible by highways and a vast selection of buses. The school’s population is multicultural and diverse, so it is no question why this beloved institution is responsible for me to further my education, and has proven to be an amazing place indeed. The school has a number of positives associated with it, for instance, the wrestling team, soccer team and the football team are performing at the top of their divisions. The academic buildings, cafeterias, and restrooms are kept clean for the most part so that is a wonderful indication. Although, we enjoy the positives Camden County
Hello, My name is Sarah and I am writing to you regarding the new policy that is being adopted. The one about "Students who do not have a B average or above, can no longer participate in after school activities including any clubs or sports."
Sophia Kerby speaks out about why we need diversity on college campuses. She uses research on Fisher Vs University of Texas to challenge college and universities to make change in their admission policies. Kerby states, “If the Court bars the use of race in admissions, it will erase 50 years
The policy that requires educational institutions to dissuade students from pursuing the fields that they are unlikely to succeed is, at first glance, rather plausible. Certainly a prompt forestalling action may bring the student back from the detouring path effectively. However, the consequences of this policy are not immutable. Instead, they vary dramatically with the characteristics of students, and the time during which the policy is enacted, before or in college. Such complexity of the possible results of this policy requires careful circumspection. While the author declares such dissuasion is obligatory, I remain doubtful of this.
Majority of high schools in America offer study hall as a way for teens to be able to get homework or un-finished classwork done. But some schools believe it is a waste of valuable class time so they do not offer it. Here are a few reasons why all schools should offer study hall.
For the individuals, who so wholeheartedly disagree with this protest, I respect your opinions. However from personal experience, I think the sole purpose of this protest is one this campus needs at this moment. I am involved in a variety of organizations here on campus. As a result, I have made friends with students who live in the village. More times than not, I have been stopped and questioned as to what my intentions were for the evening. That should not be a thing. Unless you want to be my pal, do not try to figure out ways to get a student in trouble. Why should I not be allowed to enter a friend’s room, where there could potentially be liquor, if I do not plan on drinking it? I could potentially fail a class, but should I just not show up? No, that would be absolutely ridiculous and that was also a pretty shitfire example tbh.
Should colleges have mandatory attendance polices? while many students will disagree many will agree, like me. the reason I think colleges should have mandatory attendance is to make sure students are doing work, and to make sure students don't fall behind in classes, also to make sure they know what they are doing and lastly, to make sure students pass the class by making sure they are getting the right information needed for quizzes, test, and exams.
College is a character defining time period for many. Whether it be positive or negative, the campus climate holds a very valuable role in determining the outcome of one’s college experience. In my archival research I have found that there is mostly positive actions that the administration has conducted, however I have also seen counterexamples that claim Duke is an unwelcoming campus for women.
In today’s age, parents are much more involved in their child’s life than history has shown in pass times. With more and more kids going to college parents are wanting to stay just as involved in their kid’s college life as they were in their high school life, but with an act such as, FERPA, parents are stopped from doing so. I believe a plan like the FERPA Waiver Plan should be adopted at my school and others all around the United States.
Nationally 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted in college. Most of the time it's by someone the victim knows personally and trusts. A great deal of colleges only have a ¨no means no¨ policy, and while that may work, many people argue that affirmative consent policies allow students to be clear and understanding on consent. Although raising awareness would not prevent predators from sexually assaulting students, universities should still raise awareness on sexual assault, because it teaches students what consent is so they can prevent intoxicated sexual assault, teach students to recognize and stop sexual assault, and teach students to speak up and report sexual assault.
In the study, the part that jumped out to me the most was the section on one’s political views in college and the trend that students become more liberal in college. What I observed in this study was that most students (including conservatives) tend to become more liberal when introduced
I am a strong believer that the rights of the many should not be violated because of the few that violates the law. I told my students at the beginning of the school year that they should not bring anything valuable to class because I am not responsible
Imagine that you are in school and you see someone stabbing or hacking into his computer. Your first reaction is to tell a teacher or to ignore it. Students say is right to do all of this things but is not. I say we fight for what’s right and tell
In high school it is mandatory for all students to take four years of Math and English classes, three years of science, two years of social studies, at least one year of performing arts, and also take any elective classes. High school students are not able to choose classes that they desire for a certain career they would like to pursue in the future because of the mandatory classes that are forced upon them.
