I am sure there are many smokers but the majority most likely are nonsmokers. Faculty and staff that smoke would most likely not support the ban, arguing that not being allowed to smoke on campus can create a traffic rush due to people leaving during breaks to smoke thus causing vehicle accidents. Also, not smoking whenever can have students skipping class or leaving from class early to smoke thus possibly hindering good grades and reducing attention in class. Faculty and staff that do not smoke would support the ban, citing that faculty and staff that smoke can have a negative influence on students and a loss in respect among peers. Ultimately, faculty and staff would support the
The most obviously consequence is the phenomena of so-called “snowflake” college students. Colleges today isolate students from contradictions to a leftist worldview by smearing and silencing opposing ideas. Therefore, liberal students who have been exposed to nothing but affirmation and agreement throughout most of their education cannot deal with the differing thoughts and opinions present in the real world. These college students, instead of acting rationally and civilly when confronted with contrary views, are prone to melting down like snowflakes, hence the nickname. But the censorship of free speech on college campuses doesn’t just harm students’ abilities to deal with differing opinions; it teaches college students that those differing opinions should be silenced.
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.
Those that have been killed are someone’s children, fathers, mothers, brothesr, and sisters. There death has cause so much grieve to their friends and family. I believe that no one want to lose their love ones from gun violence. Allowing students to carry firearms on college campus would likely compromise the lives and safety of innocent students, faculty, and staff. We can start by rectifying the problem and not adding to the problem of gun violence by allowing guns on
Caroline Bird’s argument against postsecondary education is incorrect, specifically her beliefs that students are exposed to too many options and graduates only desire jobs that save people. First, Caroline Bird shares her belief that “a college experience that piles option on option …merely adds to the contemporary nightmare.” Although too many options are sometimes overwhelming, limiting choices would also create undue pressure for students. For instance, as a student, I am exposed to several options: what classes I should take, what major I should major in, what professors I should take, etc. This allows me control over my education, so I can avoid being pressured into a class or a major that is not right for me. As a matter of fact, author Virginia N. Gordon found statistical evidence that about 75 percent of students change their major at least once before graduation (Freedman).
Between the fifth and sixth lines, Hague is saying to lie and blame success on luck, but if you’re having to lie about something, then it’s not really luck, is it? Maybe it’s not luck at all. It could just be opportunity, not skill. The line “Resign all clubs and committees” (Hague 513) is a joke about what colleges represent. College applications stress not only doing well academically, but to also participate outside of school in extracurricular activities to be well-rounded.
How do we determine right from wrong? Determining right from wrong is interpreted differently for everyone, but often people have to choose what they believe is right and what the authority has to say in it. In the Colin Kaepernick article he makes a decision that he thinks is right and faces the consequences that were involved. In Antigone, she goes against the law to protect her brother despite what her uncle says, along with the punishment she receives. In the student protest article, the students go against the rules to show they have the right to wear what they want.
Censorship of student speech is incompatible with higher education because not only is college meant for students to go learn and develop but it is also meant for students to be able to explore new ideas and be able to talk and say whatever they please. After watching the two videos by FIRE, i have concluded that in the first video when the University of Cincinnati had only let people that wanted to pass out flyers and make word of what there cause is about the college forced them to stay in a designated area that they could not move out of or they would be arrested for trespassing. The university that is doing this to the group is being very unconstitutional. Also because they are a big university they think that they could do anything even
Binge Drinking Binge drinking is utilizing a significant amount of alcohol. College campuses represent the most significant setting of binge drinking because a college is a sociable place where people connect and get together. College drinking remains a problem and students will fight for their basic drinking rights. Colleges should enforce underage drinking laws in and around their campus because binge drinking has many disadvantages. Parents will be satisfied with the college’s decision which is to control binge drinking on campus.
School Suspensions Are a Waste of Time Would you take school suspensions away if it would benedict the school? Many school have always used school suspensions as their way of chastisement, simply because it is the easiest way. School suspensions became popular around the 1960s and 70s because many more fights were occurring due to desegregation. Although school suspensions are widely used throughout most schools, it is time we found a more effective way of discipline. School suspensions are not working because students may not understand what they did wrong, suspensions feel more like time off than a punishment, and students are more likely to act out again after being suspended.
