The campus carry law should be banned because of the concerns and negative viewpoint it has from students. A survey of college students in, “Students’ Opinions about Concealed Firearms on Campuses,” came to a finding “that 78% of participants were unsupportive of allowing students, faculty, and visitors to carry concealed handguns on campus” (Eaves 16). The law is making students feel uncomfortable in a place where they shouldn’t. Students should not have to feel uneasy sitting in class and listening to a lecture. This uneasiness can distract students from learning because they are concerned for their lives and continually thinking “who has a gun in here?” Thus, students tend to fear and avoid their professors because of the possibility of them having a concealed carry which can result to a negative impact on professor-student relationships.
It’s not fair to punish all for one’s mistake. We all know what a curfew is, but the thought of having one is even worse. Many teenagers believe that curfews are not important and also think that they do not need them. Although the government and some parents do believe in curfews. The main reason why they want curfews is because
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.
(Elliott) When a college was using a book as a requirement some of the students decided to not read it due to some of the things that the book had in it. The writer Keane said, “Surely those college students have seen 10 billion images more obscene on the side of a bus than the few raw or suggestive drawings in the book.” The author also said other important things about this book and they are “We have just found new and different offenses to be outraged by, and most of them can be found in the books we teach.” and also “An unfortunate commonplace in our educational institution these days is the notion that students must be protected from certain literature because it could damage them or trigger hidden traumas.” These quotes are so true in the sense that these students need to learn about some of these topics even though they may not be comfortable with it because it may be a part of society that they need to become more
The current political climate has many citizens who dislike corporate influence and distrust large organizations in general. For example, a sponsorship from a Wall Street business for an education-based nonprofit would likely be distrusted. Social responsibility plays a large role in the appropriateness of sponsorships. Patterson & Wilkins (2014, p. 72) give the example ethically questionable situation of Budweiser sponsoring football tailgating at a university. The sponsorship would not be appropriate since it could lead to underage drinking and drunk driving.
This would lead to more students not focusing on their school work, peer pressure would also begin to affect students, if they could get alcohol from peers. This could eventually give every student in the school access to alcohol. A article on ProCon.org states, “ Seventy-seven percent of Americans would go against lowering the drinking age.” This could lead to more protests and attacks, and more schools would protest against the lower age. With problems already occurring with terrorist attacks, we do not need more attacks just about
By enforcing a ban on public smoking we might be able to create a safer environment for the non-smoking population. Enforcing laws that are against public smoking will result in lesser kids to start smoking. In a recent survey, it is found that when kids see other people smoke, they find it fascinating and cool to a certain extent and will try to smoke their first cigarette. Although we know that smoking is harmful the government earns a fare amount of money from the sales of tobacco in the different forms and by putting a ban on public smoking the income would decrease. However is it actually worth getting money out of something we know affects the health negatively and causes illnesses as scary as
America is built on diverse ideas from different group of people, and by not comfortably allowing students, who are the future of this country, express their opinions; we are slowing our growth as a nation. In addition to that, professors on campus don’t feel safe either when guns are allowed on campus. College students just like me, want good grades and when they feel like an exam was too hard, they like to complain to the teacher. In a normal classroom, this wouldn’t be a big deal. However,
I think that students shouldn 't be able to obtain a license to carry concealed weapons at COC because guns on campus can lead to more violence. I do know that in some cases having a weapon can save lives, yet I feel that violence should not be fought with more violence. For example, what would happen if someone that has a license to carry a gun snaps or gets super mad and decides to take out his/her gun? Most of the time, college students deal with a lot of stress in their lives and our emotions are all over the place. Our emotions can make us do something we shouldn 't.
General Purpose: to persuade Specific Purpose: to persuade the audience of the importance of banning smoking in public places Thesis: Smoking should be banned in public places because it is harmful to non-smokers who visit public places. I. Introduction A. Attention-getter: How many of you been around people who are smoking in public places?

Most people would say no, but OU got more backlash for this than the students who created it. David Boren immediately kicked the fraternity off campus and he initiated a plan to prove “not all sooners are racist.” This is where we see the problem and power struggle between Fraternities and Universities lies. All the students in the video were adults and living
One more reason I believe banning books are wrong is because, you get more choices. Librarians say that they want kids to have as many reading choices as possible, but by them banning books they can have as many options to pick what they interested in. However, if kids get interested in a series and it is banned in their school library because it is more “mature” that gives the limited options. Jaquan was in the library trying to choose a book he was interested in but he couldn 't because the book he was looking for was banned. Some people say that racial slurs are why they ban some books, but most kids are gonna learn about racial slurs in their social studies class anyway.
In the article “College Presidents Seek Debate on Drinking Age” the issue of lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 is strongly discussed by college presidents and various organizations and Universities. Even though both parties agree that alcohol abuse in colleges is an extensive problem in schools around the country, college organizations are debating with lawmakers to lower the drinking age. With the intention to reduce driving accidents and deaths due to alcohol abuse, the drinking age was elevated to 21, creating the rejection of many college students and administrators in the country. Lowering the drinking age to 18 would not have much impact in the attitude of young people since there is no much difference in maturity in 3 years. This statement is supported by a Duke University sophomore from Singapore, where the drinking age is lower.
Binge drinking has become a major problem with many college students on campus.This is because of numerous universities ' grounds that abstain from taking a gander at the issues of club and sorority that partake in gatherings that has a craving for drinking is the most ideal approach to have a fabulous time. So as to eliminate binge drinking on school grounds is to get more instructors, senior members, and grounds security to get more include with their students. This can be through gatherings and counseling 's, to talk about the influences of binge drinking and what has on their wellbeing and their future in school. This will help students to comprehend that liquor misuse is a negative response to their future and
But on the other hand this way is time consuming and students cannot always afford the time to join the protests. Thus, they have decided to extend their protest as not to attend their classes and protest against the prices but this can cause failing from their classes. Also, students of the University of California at Berkeley made a movement group called funeral for public education that is protesting against the tuition cost of the colleges. Since they are in one of the famous Universities, their strategy is simple because everyone can hear them if they protest. Just like the State Interest Group of Indiana University, they started to make protest.
