The University of Dayton Men’s Basketball Program There have been many historical moments with the University of Dayton Flyers Men’s Basketball team, but Mark Weaver recalls of the one that meant most to him. It took place on March 24, 1967, in Louisville’s Freedom Hall for the Final Four of the NCAA (National College Athletic Association) tournament against the highly favored North Carolina Tar Heels (Collett 228). This was the third straight NCAA tournament appearance for the Flyers, but their
University of California Davis, or simply UC Davis is located outside of the small town of Davis in Yolo and Solano Counties, just fifteen miles West of the state capitol, Sacramento. The University has many features which make it stand out among the California state-run university system.

and rest for few days for common cold, but my story is totally different. A common cold could cause me allergies, asthma and fever when I was young. It is the reason why I spent most of my time seeing the doctor and stayed at hospital. At the age of 10, my parents decided to have me switched to oriental medicine and acupuncture. Although I hated the taste of the Chinese medicine and was really afraid of the needle, those methods really helped my body. I was able to act like normal child after few

My Reason The process of ending up where I did was a long one. I came to this town merely by chance, not knowing what to expect, or who I would meet. I didn’t have dreams of going to a cool mountain town, or a small city to attend college; I just fell into it not knowing where I would end up. I had good reasoning, coming from a small town, I had good expectations from my prior visits, and I fit into the college life making friends very easily. After months of searching, this is where I ended
My athlete is Todd Marinovich, and I chose him because he played for USC, which is my favorite college team. Todd Marinovich was one of the most talented, and controversial athlete to ever play the game of football. From the time he was born, he was trained to be the perfect athlete from his father Marv Marinovich. Marv, was a former NFL and USC football player, as well as a renounced strength and conditioning coach, who attempted to engineer the greatest quarterback who ever lived in his son. From
What does diversity and community mean to you? Diversity is an observation of a mixture of different races, cultural backgrounds, and perspectives within a large mass of people. This observation is significant because people of different backgrounds are able to approach a single questionable situation in several different ways. Today, we are able to see diversity within the mist of large and small communities. A community is a group of people who interacts with one another, share commonalities, and
team and led them to fourth place in the N.I.T (p.55, Krzyzewski). When Duke signed Coach K, many people were furious, because they had never heard of him before.

Why College Athletes Should Be Paid Have you ever had the thought, “Why do college athletes not get paid?” Well, the NCAA claims that they do not have the money, or the student athletes are getting their college tuitions fully paid, is that not enough?

College is an important stepping stone into the future, and it is accompanied by many challenges. The heaviest burden we bear throughout high school is preparing for our future and getting into college. As my senior year approached, and my family and counselors were constantly hounding me to start looking into my different options, the big question hit me. What school do I want to go to? Some people know right away where they want to go, while others—including myself—remain unsure and hesitant
“Definition of indentured servant, you work for accommodations and food.” (Arian Foster, Get schooled Netflix documentary). This definition could also describe a college athlete. College athletes have been making the NCAA millions of dollars for decades. All the athletes want is money to help them get by in school, but because we are not paying them they leave for the pros as soon as they can. So now these kids are not getting the education they should, but instead are just trying to make money.
Being a freshman is scary but what is even scarier is when you get put into a triple. Thinking that you can not possibly bring every single piece of clothing or trying to figure out how you will have enough space in such a small room. Why do we even have triples at Walsh? Having a triple is not as bad if the people in charge of housing do their job correctly. Why do they put an out of state student in a triple? They know that they have to bring a lot of their items because they can not go home all

The University of Maryland names the majority of its campus’s buildings after the legacies of influential alumni and world scholars. Most would assume that the activities that occur in each of these buildings would be a representation of the namesake, however, that is not true for the Skinner Building. Current students at the University of Maryland know the Skinner Building as home to the Communication, Philosophy and Nutrition and Food Science departments, but William Woolford Skinner did not concentrate
as much more than just an athlete and a coach. Most importantly, people began to recognize Valvano as a fun-loving man of integrity and good character.

Why College Athletes should be Paid Due to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules and regulations no college athlete is able to receive any compensation or endorsement while participating in college athletics. These rules have long been challenged, however no changes have been made by the NCAA.

Last September, the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) cut a deal with CBS for a fourteen year, eleven billion dollar contract to broadcast the infamous March Madness basketball tournament. The NCAA also agreed to include sixty-eight teams instead of the previous sixty-five. Currently, there’s talk again between the NCAA and CBS of expanding the tournament to ninety-six teams- all because of money. Of the eleven billion dollars the NCAA will rake in over the coming years, the players
