Should College Athletes Be Paid? Retrieved September 27, 2017, from http://law.scu.edu/sports-law/should-college-athletes-be-paid/ They represent the different side of the argument regarding if the college athletes should get paid or not. They giving us an example of the one who favor of paying college athletes and the arguments against, they also explain the Nine Points program re regarding the payment of College Athletes Mike Gilleran is the executive director of the institute of sports law and ethics at Santa Clara University, and he is a professor of Sports Law at the University of San Francisco in its Sport Management Graduate
(Page 211, Figure one). The authors’ emphasis on “on average” is very effective at showing how their point makes sense and why it should be taken into consideration. I found the way that the authors focused on the minority more than the majority was skillfully effective at showing how some career paths do not require a college education and that the return in investment would not be worth the cost. Throughout their argument I found the writers to mostly use Logos and Ethos in their writing. The Logos is evident by the way they use statistics and the Ethos by how they state telling someone the only way to be successful is to go to college is a disservice.
Although Allison attempts to bring diversity to the article by mentioning how factors effect experiences, she seems to generalize her statements. In the beginning of her article, Rachel Allison mentions an article that speaks about false portrayal that hooking up has in college culture because of its low percentage of students. Although the other article focused on the percentage of people hooking up, Allison and her colleague, Barbara J. Risman
With great detail, it provides an accurate perspective of the education experience one might expect from a university and from a community college. Furthermore, I felt the essay contrasts the old style college experience with modern day community college life in a way that reminds us not every college student has the privilege of being able to afford to attend an expensive 4-year university. When Addison talks about how the college experience Perlstein describes is that of “his own nostalgia,” I also felt that that Perlstein’s experience is no longer indicative of the modern educational experience that students obtain today at the many community colleges (1). I would have to agree with Addison’s statement, “My guess, reading between the lines, is that Mr. Perlstein has never set foot in an American community college”
In William Cronon’s essay “Only Connect” he poses the question to his audience on trying to deduce the concept of liberal education. Cronon makes it clear within his essay that a liberal education goes beyond earning a degree and fulfilling credit hours; to him there's something more deeper in a liberal education that helps shape an individual’s life. He discusses some historical background information on where liberal education came from by citing how the word “liberal” developed throughout time and he even mentions how the liberal arts curriculum developed. Throughout, the majority of the essay Cronon makes a valid argument on what the purpose of a liberal education does for individuals pursuing college. In his opinion, he believes a liberal
( Braaksma 2 ). He is telling us about how his life would be like if he did not go to college. His education from college will benefit him to get a better job so he does not have to slave away at a factory. “All the advice and public-service announcements about the value of an education that used to
1 Many kids graduate school wondering what college they want to go to and if they want to spend so much money on it. Though some people think that college isn’t worth it I’d like to respectfully disagree. I think that college is worth it. The evidence I have behind my reasoning is that people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a degree, and people with a diploma make less money than people with a degree. 2 First, people with a diploma that are not going to college won’t be able to experience amazing social gatherings than people with a college degree.
Duke Economics’ Centers and Initiates stood out to me when researching economics programs. The Economics Center for Teaching particularly caught my eye. The opportunities this center provides for undergraduate involvement in the groundbreaking research occurring at Duke attracted me immediately. I consider Duke a good match for me because I don’t want a passive undergraduate education, I want an active one. I believe Duke’s Economics Center for Teaching can provide the active, undergraduate research opportunities I seek.
When people think of the phrase, “the good life”, they immediately think of money; stellar paychecks, lavish vacations, and European sport cars. While that may sound appealing, I think money is only a small fraction of what the good life really is. I associate the good life with comfort. A comfortable life isn’t luxurious; It’s pursuing a career you’re passionate about and making enough money from it to support your family and do the things you love without falling into debt. Something I hope to lose while I’m in college is any shred of ignorance that I may have.
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. First, Lieberman accuses some news agencies of “short sighted reporting”, meaning that these news outlets are only giving one side of the overall story, which intimidates potential college students.
