These athletes receive free tuition, textbooks, rooms, meal, and training. So they should not be paid extra money on top of that. Athletes may have to train hard, but while they are training, non-athletic students are out working to pay off debts. By paying athletes, it would hurt many smaller universities without much athletic funding, as they would not be able to buy the best players like bigger colleges could. College sports are meant to bring players and fans together to celebrate their school, but sports are becoming too big a part of college life.
Everyone has had some type of excitement after winning something. Nothing matters but the win without any thoughts of profit. Recently, there has been a debated question; should college students who play a sport get rewarded by being paid? I believe college athletes should not get paid for various reasons: they receive scholarships, perks and it would create problems with the university expenses. College athletes have been dedicating their time and hard work into the sport they have worked so hard to be respectable at.
However regardless of the argument, I still feel that college athletes should NOT be paid to play. College athletes are not forced into playing the sport that they have devoted their time to during their years in secondary education. They continue to play into the college level for their love of the game. And for this, many college athletes are offered full scholarships. Today’s tuition for many schools are so expensive that without the scholarships that some of the students receive, they would not be able to attend college at all.
This was a setback for women’s rights everywhere, since the only way they were able to obtain the right to vote was by admitting that they were different, and needed to be able to vote to protect themselves form the big strong men. There were many women who fought for female equality, and many who didn’t care, but eventually the feminists won the vote. Women today are still fighting for equality in the home, in the workplace, and in society as a whole, which seems like it may take centuries of more slow progress to achieve.

Perhaps the people who join these groups have low self-esteem, social anxiety, or feel that the best way to make friends in college is to pay for them. I find this issue to be interesting because there are many Greek organizations on campus that are constantly advertising and promoting themselves. Non-members have a tendency to either be annoyed or amused with this behavior. To support my thesis I have conducted surveys, interviews and experiments. Because Greek clubs are all over campus, I knew that my surveys and interviews would receive honest responses as to why people join or don’t join.
Student Athletes Should Not Receive Additional Money When a student athlete signs a letter of intent to play at a division one school, he or she is generally happy for the opportunity to perform at the highest level of college competition. Like all good things though, they eventually come to an end. After awhile athletes soon begin to realize not all of their expenses are paid for. Because some of the extra costs in college are put on student athletes, some suggest the NCAA and other sources should provide additional funding to help athletes out. This issue has created a heated debate over the relationship between money and college athletes.
The question on whether college athletes should be paid or not has continues to be debated controversially on TV shows, Newspapers, websites, and in college classes. Whereas, most colleges are continuously making up big amount of their revenues based on their athletic students’ effort. Some people would agree that college athletes should earn an income for their labor. However, others argue that not having to pay tuition for college is a tremendous benefit for athletes. But both sides agree that the college athletic programs have never been more important than today to Universities.
While the prospect of receiving a free college education is something few would complain about, when the issue is more closely examined it becomes evident that it is not enough. The universities are exploiting athletes, and recently the problems that this creates have become more prominent. More and more athletes are now leaving school early to enter the professional leagues and make money. There have also been more reports of violations surrounding university boosters and alumni paying players. Furthermore, athletes have been accused of making deals with gamblers and altering the outcome of games.
And it is not easy to change our majors after getting into the colleges. So we need to decide what we learn in University in such a hurry. These students do not have enough time to think about their majors and future career and they cannot change their majors if someday they know what they want to learn. Although education is important that almost all the countries encourage people to study, it does not mean everyone should go to colleges. Education is necessary but college is not necessary for everyone.
People define humility as weakness, timidity, or lack of leadership, yet no one is right all the time. America thrives off of individuality. The freedom to be my own person or focus on my dreams is what draws people in; however, the lack of meekness is what my downfall becomes because my parents told me to focus on myself and not others. I worked hard on who I want to be, and in high school my teacher ingrained the concept of standing up for what I believe. Now that I am in college, all the professors and college staff tell me is that this is the time for me to make dreams, and opportunities come alive no matter the cost.
