Not to mention paying for their two daughters' Catholic high school educations and their out-of-state college tuitions.
Joseph's insight:

My thoughts:

The sad thing about America is that it is so difficult to find jobs. The unemployment number may be 7.6% but that is only because so many people have dropped out of the job market altogether so it makes the figure appear low. The actual rate is probably somewhere around 15%. I know somebody who has military experience, job experience, and a four year degree but she cant find a job. Nowadays you have to know somebody to get a job which is why I used to be discouraged to even try to get a degree but I've come to realize that it is better to try and do something then to sit and do nothing.

The Open Curriculum ensures students the freedom to direct the course of their educations. Banning ROTC from campus denies students interested in military careers from exploring and pursuing their ambitions to the fullest ...
Joseph's insight:

My thoughts:

I agree with the opinion that they should bring the ROTC program back. It is a worthwhile program and having looked into myself it is a good way to help pay for school. There arn't too many downsides to it either other than the fact that you have to accomadate for the program which may cost some money but I think it is well worth it for the students. I also think that it creates a nice atmosphere when you see students at your campus walking around in uniform. Thankyou for all of this helpful information this article was very revealing.

Are athletic scholarships fair to other students?
Joseph's insight:

My thoughts:

Although college is expensive and I have spent many hours contemplating how I will find a way to pay for it and I will not be receiving any sports scholarships I think they are definetly fair. The amount of work that students do that receives these scholarships makes it completely fair. Anybody can get a sports or academic scholarship as long as they spend a huge amount of time training/studying. So to tell gets who work hard just so they can have these kinds of opportunities that they can no longer receive scholarships for it is just ridiculous.
