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.
People who are thinking of college would typically include parents who want to know if college is best for their child or children, high school students, adults looking to complete their schooling or even enhance it, and even people who have dropped out of school entirely. In order for Delbanco’s article to be well supported and robust, he would need to go over the cause for why people don’t think highly of college as a wise educational plan in life. He explains the basis of people not going to college, he says, “Some on the right say that pouring more public investment in higher education, in the form of enhanced subsides for individuals or institutions, is a bad idea.” This is important in an argumentative article to have a refutation; otherwise, the argument is weak and fails to support the claims that have been made by the writer. Introducing a counter argument in an argumentative article is an intelligent decision to do when writing; this provides insight on others thoughts that oppose the statement, which has been made by said person.
The older generations got taught how to save money and how to live a college life that would make them get through college with a little less debt. Now if we give them free college they won’t know how debts work and how to coop with them. College debt can teach the younger generation how to save their money and spend it wisely instead of just spending it on the newest video game console that just came out etc. To bring this to a personal level my parents told me once I got a job that I need to start saving most of the money I earned for college since they didn’t want me to have as much debt as they did coming out of college (they are still paying it today). If they didn’t tell me that I might have just went off and spent it all on objects that I didn’t need and also now I know to save money even after college for things like a new car or house once I get to that stage in my life.

Mail Surveys Imagine that you are interested in exploring the attitudes college students have about writing. Since it would be impossible to interview every student on campus, choosing the mail-out survey as your method would enable you to choose a large sample of college students. You might choose to limit your research to your own college or university, or you might extend your survey to several different institutions. If your research question demands it, the mail survey allows you to sample a very broad group of subjects at small cost.
What It’s All About…). You will have good life skills when you get out of college, you would have gotten a taste of what it has to offer. You become a lot more independent going to college “ Statistics show that a college diploma can help you get a job, keep a job, make more money”( Attending College: What It’s All About…). You will also grow as an young adults and mature but will not be all the way one your own, “College helps students develop into mature, responsible and independent adults.

So, if you believe that college should not be free because this would make students irresponsible and they would fool around as they do in high school and this is wrong. Because when college tuition becomes free there will be rules to make sure that the students work hard and take it seriously and handle the responsibilities. Free college would definitely help you in your life. It is mandatory for success. Yes some students do not take school seriously and that is why college should be free for students who do take school seriously.
Not only in college is time management important, but also in your general everyday life. Your time should be spent learning and broadening your knowledge. Wasting your time on video games instead of writing a paper or studying for a test is not something that should happen frequently. I’m not saying that taking time out of your day to relax is terrible, but you should monitor to amount of time you spend doing leisure activities. I personally love to take naps with my free time, but I know that if I take too long of naps or nap too frequently then I will not be getting things done that need to be done.
In the essay “Should Everyone Go to College” written by Stephanie Owen and Isabel Sawhill, the authors write about the positive and negative effects of going to college. Based on my personal experience and the experiences of others around me, I say the positive outcomes are better eventually than the negatives. Owen and Sawhill start the discussion by voicing their concern for the young people in our generation with having to choose if
In the articles “Stop Scaring Students” by Devorah Lieberman and “College Is a Waste of Time and Money” by Caroline Bird, the authors debate the value of college education. This topic is vital to a college student's success because the articles may help mold their decisions. While Lieberman and Bird’s opinions may differ, they share a common interest- to educate students on their options after high school. In “Stop Scaring Students”, Devorah Lieberman argues that a college education is still a valuable investment in today’s world.
However, when having a job may help with college debt it is also important to recognize that it does not help entirely when work starts to become more of a priority over school. As well as, young students may not be able to acquire a good grasp of how too take care of money properly and to evenly spread finances across all needs and wants. And secondly as another alternative solution could be starting out slowly and going to a community college so that college debt can be slow and that it will be more bearable to handle when going to university if that is a choice to pursue even further for a student’s education. In the article, ‘Paying for College Without Loans, Scholarships, or Looting Your Parents Retirement” it writes, “We’ve seen something of a devaluation of a bachelor’s degree in the job market.” (Steinberg
In their article the authors put important information that was interesting but they didn’t go in debt over those part. For example psychologists have linked text messaging with depression and anxiety among college students. This was something they say that was interesting to me but they didn’t explain how these two things are linked. Another thing that the authors are lacking in are that they didn’t have a theses they started to write about how Facebook was the biggest social media site people visited. They should 've write a thesis because it explains to the reader what their going to talk about and since they didn’t do that I started to get confused from the
