Yet another falling incident:
To give you an idea of the current record for this year already:
This is the third alcohol-related fall at WSU and the University of Idaho in the past month. A 19-year-old WSU student was injured in a three-story fall Sept. 14 at a fraternity. A 21-year-old University of Idaho student was injured in a two-story fall Sept. 12 at his fraternity.
Not to mention the August incidents that they didn’t bother reporting. Remember these are the “best and brightest” that we send to college. No, I don’t think so anymore. A good majority of those who go to college I think go because they’re too dumb to do anything else.
They go to college racking up debt to get degrees in things that will never earn them enough money to pay it back. Again, remember what I was saying about them not really being the best and brightest. Then you have other incidents where someone claims that College is a right and that everyone should go.
Everyone has the right to attempt to obtain a college education. However just because you can attempt it, doesn’t mean you can afford it or that you will be admitted. It is up to the person to perform well enough to be admitted as well as find a way to finance their schooling. You do not have a right to force someone else to pay for your education. You do not have a right to be automatically admitted. You merely have a right to seek education, you do not have a right to have it handed to you.
Besides, you know what’s great about the internet, which you can use at your local library, and it’s also cheaper than going to college, you can self educate. There are piles upon piles of information out there if you’re willing to go find it and read it. The MIT Open Courseware is the best example of available information. I have gone through many of the courses trying to improve my knowledge on different subjects as well as supplementing what I already know.
The point of college at this point is to provide a little sheet of paper and certification that you are educated about “X”. The thing is, that certification is an investment and you had better invest wisely. My wife got two degrees, both in the sciences, however it was an actual certification that finally got her a job. All you get out of college now days is a piece of paper, most of them are worthless, a few are gold. If you’re paying for that piece of paper, I suggest making sure it’s gold and not pyrite.
