Adderall is a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, central nervous system stimulants that affect chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to focus and other behaviors. Adderall is often prescribed to those diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, also known as ADHD, and other brain disorders. Although the prescribed use of Adderall has helped those suffering attention deficit disorders, the recent rise in nonmedical use of Adderall has led to unfair academic advantages along with an increased pressure to use stimulants among students. Adderall is easily accessible on university campuses due to the lenient health care clinicians and the fact that one can find a person with a prescription willing to sell their pills or even give them away which has created a black market for the drug on campuses. College students are able to bypass psychiatrists and more stringent testing by going to the campus health clinic for an ADHD misdiagnosis (Stolz 2).
All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.

So why can’t the teens go out for lunch too? Well often times teenagers are seen as irresponsible, but this is not always the case. There are tons of responsible teens out there that could handle leaving school for lunch. Sometime the teens don’t even want to go out to eat, sometimes they just need a break to recharge. Off-campus lunch provides money for our community, the students mature and learn to become responsible adults, not to mention they get a nice break from their learning environment.
This can make it hard to quit using them. Examples of withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, depression, irritability, trouble sleeping, and increased appetite,”(Truven Health). This says that once started, the nicotine will keep you from stopping the e-cigarettes. Although, if the decision made is to quit, then it will cause many side effects.

Community colleges require some students to take remedial classes due to low standardized test scores; however, this requirement harms undergraduates more than it benefits them. Remedial classes are non-credit courses, which means that the students being forced to take them are not receiving any credit for their work. Ironically, undergraduates must pay for courses that may not even be necessary. In “Revamping Community Colleges to Improve Graduation Rates,” Alina Tugend (2016) states, “Four years of data have shown that those who were placed in the higher-level classes ‘were succeeding just as well as those who had to go through development,’ Mr. Oakley said” (para. 17).
Schools everywhere have sports and Sometimes they're helpful and. Sometimes they're not. Districts spend so much money on sports they often don't realize when they need to buy supplies because their budgets have all been spent on Unneeded things. Therefore we need to get rid of sports at schools so we can bring back science labs without them being covered in mold and students being able to focus in classes and not so much on
This essay serves a convincing and powerful tone about how “colleges have a serious problem with alcohol abuse among students, and it is not getting any better” (336). It mentions how colleges are oblivious to this issue, and the problem will be solved over time, which is not true because evidence shows that students have carried their drinking issues throughout their lives. This essay lists steps about how this problem can be prevented in college campuses, and it does include statistics, but it relies on persuasive strategies to convince the audience that steps need to be taken to reduce the large amount of binge drinking in colleges, especially with students underage. The essay also uses convincing statements such as “Colleges cannot claim to create a supportive learning environment where they support such behavior” (338) and includes repetition of words like “must” to show that action needs to be done about this problem that continues to happen every year. Therefore, to prevent this conflict, the essay offers a solution of recommending a weekend tour so students can see the shame on students’ face after a night of drinking, and colleges also need to acknowledge the dangers of alcohol consumption.

If students can’t improve their scores, they are stuck either staying in the same spot or downgrading in the education system. Students that get advanced scores on tests are able to move ahead and have better opportunities in their schools, but students that don’t score well are left behind, sometimes barely moving from grade to grade. When making changes to the schooling system, Thomas Jefferson said “twenty of the best geniuses will be raked from the rubbish annually” (Congressional Research Service, 269). The president of the United States of America, when setting up a part of the education system, said that only some of the extra-intelligent students would be taken and given amazing opportunities. He himself said that they would be taken from the rubbish,
