President Leath has suggested alternative options to VEISHEA for Iowa State students but only time will tell what holds and what will not. As one Iowa State student, Matt Banwart put it “President Leath cared more about the numbers than he did people, culture, and tradition. Cutting VEISHEA also decreased opportunities for students to get involved with planning committees for a large scale event and while some students coming in will never get to experience it, they will feel the backlash of it in a big way. While Leath was good at doing things like increasing tuition numbers the student experience for what it means to be a student at ISU has been taken away with the removal of VEISHEA.” Planes, one of President Leath’s hobbies during his tenure at Iowa State has been flying himself home on University owned planes for ‘fundraising opportunities’ that Leath stated as hunting trips with members of the NRA and government

Similarly, Latinos also frequently faced disadvantages compared to Whites and other ethnic minorities in terms of education, employment, and wages. As a result, they also have to work in the “3D” occupations of modern America. However, it is entirely plausible that the one correcting factor is the level of education, which translates to English and professional competency. When education level is compared in a controlled setting with other racial groups, differences in employability and wage earning significantly decrease. This reduction in economic gap might be observed more concretely with younger generations of Latin Americans who were either born in the United States or immigrated at young ages if they are given the same access to K-12 education as native Americans.
The argument made by these two professors state that Division 1 players qualify as employees under Federal Labor Laws. Since players are under this law, the McCormick’s feel players should get financially compensated due to the physical rigors and balance education simultaneously (Cooper, 2011).

According to a study from the University of Texas Mental Health Center, Asian American college students are more likely to favor majors in math and science than their non-Asian peers. The writer claims that “they feel pressured to fulfill the expectations of the ‘model minority’ stereotype” (Kobayashi, Model Minority Stereotype Reconsidered). Furthermore, popular culture is the main provider of our common knowledge and therefore, issues of some theorists call, “Orientalism,” or the process of making Eastern cultures seem exotic is abundant in the western world. Authentically, not all of the stereotypes are offensive to the given race; some Asians even find it
