Editor's Notebook: February

Editor's Notebook: February

What do you get when you cross a student with a missed assignment? Excuses. People often feel that creating excuses will lessen their guilt and they’ll escape rightful blame. The real outcome is that others will lose trust in you.

The 4-Year Myth

Students have been told a great myth: most students earn their degree on time. The truth of the matter is that the majority of full-time students at public universities do not graduate with a bachelor’s degree in four years, and the number of these students is even larger at community colleges. The system is costing students thousands of extra dollars in tuition and is not graduating enough of them.

Controversy Over Game Room Closing

The game area in Cafe West has long been used as a place where friends can meet to play pool, ping pong, or just talk. The area is open to all students every day of the week, assuming all rules are followed and it is kept clean.

Unfortunately, after acts of vandalism, rigging the pool table, messes, and non-students using the area, the SGA was forced to make a decision on how to enforce the rules of the game area. After much debate, a decision was made to close down the area for a week as punishment for students not following the rules.

Unnatural High: Energy Drinks' Negative Effects

In the heat of final exams, many students may reach for coffee and energy drinks to get them through the jam packed semester. But researchers say that this isn’t the best strategy. 
While coffee has been found to have real health benefits, such as decreasing cardiovascular issues and reducing the risk of diabetes, too much of it can lead to loss of sleep and of optimal brain function.

Can College Still Get You a Job?

Many of the most successful people in business were college dropouts. Typically, these “rags to riches” stories are a one-in-a-million, but Peter Thiel, the former CEO and co-founder of Pay Pal, is paying students to quit it all for $100,000, telling Business Week that “College is a waste of time and money.”

Would You Drop Out for 100K?

Would You Drop Out for 100K?

In this economy, many people question its importance and even suggest that people will be better off skipping higher education and jumping directly into the business world.

Peter Thiel, former CEO of PayPal and the first person to invest in Facebook, has tested this idea multiple times by giving a group of young students money to drop out of college and start a business. In 2013, he gave 20 college students under 20 $100,000 and two years of mentoring from professionals in the business world. The goal was to see if these young adults could make it without an education.

College Activism Not  Dead, Just Different

College Activism Not Dead, Just Different

Some may believe that the passion that often results in student activism is dead. During recent contentious events, such as the Michael Brown shooting, people around the country became vocal on multiple sides of issue. When people looked a colleges and universities to see a reaction, the easiest place to find it was the internet, with photos and videos of students advocating a cause or protesting another. Student activism often begins with a student, but it doesn’t stay in one place.
