Even with most high school students believing that it is worth it because of the great time they will have and the memories. From personal experience this year my friends as well as I are spending almost $700 on the entire prom event, for just our self’s. This includes everything from dress, shoes, to limo and post prom events. The average high school student does receive financial help from their parent, opposed to in 1925-26 when “girls were not allowed to borrow money from the office”. Showing the negative side of the expense for prom to teens could discourage them from going and have a great last high school experience.
Drinking on College Campuses Underage students drinking on college campuses has been a problem for countless years. Parents and professors look over the problem of students drinking and look at their college life in a positive way. They understand the students to be studying, making new friends, or working. Instead, an abundance of students are partying and drinking at these parties. The transformation from high school to college causes stress to the students.
It’s mostly a show most of it is not real. But it’s showing that you don't need to work hard to get through college. In 21 and Over College buddies meet up and go out a party with their friend Jeff. It’s his twenty-first birthday and it starts out ok and they are drinking a little, but the buddies plans are to get Jeff Blindingly drunk. They forget he had an interview in the morning for a very important job and they can’t remember where Jeff lives.
There is no turning back from a mistake like this, no forgetting, whatsoever. But I can’t say that I wish it didn’t happen, because that night taught me some very valuable lessons. It was over Thanksgiving break, and my friend Katie was having a party; actually, a three day party, to be exact. Her parents were out of town and it seemed like she invited the whole school. Everywhere you walked inside the house you had to hold your beer over your head because there was a good chance it would get knocked out of your hand otherwise.
Binge Drinking on College Campuses High school is over and it is your first time away form home, what are you going to do? The typical college student wants to party! Of the people that were surveyed over half believed that the legal drinking age should be lowered. [O’Kane 1] The legal age to drink in the United States is now 21 years old; college freshman, sophomores, and some juniors are not of the legal age to drink. This causes a problem on many campuses; several students are experiencing their first time away from parental care in a setting sinonomus with drinking and clubbing.
When we arrived in State College we met up with Nicole and a couple of her friends. We proceeded to go to her friends dorm and began playing drinking games prior to t he evening of partying. Needless to say after a couple hours of drinking games we were all a little tipsy, so we then sauntered on over to a Fraternity party, where we continued working on our inebriation. After a long night of partying and fraternizing with hundreds of drunk college kids much like ourselves, we headed back to the dorm in which the whole evening started. And just as any after-school special goes, there was one kid who had just a little too much to drink, and he proceeded to put his hand through a plate glass window.
The Department of Social and Health Services says that 23% of 10th graders start drinking at their age. This is normal for teenagers to start drinking at this age because it’s normally when kids start going to high school parties. Most every high school teenager that starts drinking in high school starts in the 10th grade, if not younger. Every year around this time, millions of kids graduate from high school, throw massive parties and get drunk. If the cops come this could cause them lots of legal trouble for months or even years.
Sophomore year. Well, maybe by the time we were sophomores we may not have been completely settled into our own high-school persona but at least we knew where we were. And maybe, that first day of school, we still were late to every single class. We learned the meaning of the word “sophomoric” that year, and teased the freshmen, getting some symbolic retribution for what the sophomores did to use the year before. Eventually... ... middle of paper ... ...ers ago, so were we.
The problem is that most minors are not guided to drink in small quantities; instead, they are tempted to consume overpowering volumes, losing their normal state of mind. It is without sensible adult advice that most teenagers get into trouble, whether it be with other drinkers in the streets or the police. Teenagers need help; they need to be shown how to be responsible. For this purpose, the most efficient method of introducing alcohol to young adolescents is by having an occasional drink with a meal at home, such as many continental families do. In addition, if the individual is 16 it is legal to have beer, wine or cider with a meal in restaurants, so being in an environment with responsible adults is a possible way to introduce alcohol to teenagers in a way that does not promote or condone drunkenness.
When these fresh college students finally get out of their parents' house they are ready to party, and this usually involves drinking a decent amount of alcohol. Joe's problem relies on his own decisions, but is influenced tremendously by his own peers, the same ones judging him for having this so called "problem". When Joe drinks his friends say he often goes beyond his limits, drinking to the point of vomiting, and not remembering the night before. But what they need to do is help Joe out by telling him how foolish he looks when he is this trashed, and that he needs to slow down. Instead of simply looking at him as the alcoholic of the group and that he has a major problem.
