(U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 2008). The Equal Pay Act was passed as an amendment to Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and is administered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Society has been aware of the discrimination in pay between men and women for centuries.

The cultural diversity on campus can both positively and negatively impact students’ lives at university. Light asserts that the biggest change in American universities is the amount of diversity around campuses. Light states that “it is important to shape the conversation that accompanies any such challenge so that it becomes a constructive learning experience, not a simple fight for authority” (p. 159). Students should be made to realize that there will be differences in perspectives and opinions along with cultural differences however, they must be open to all this so that college experience becomes more meaningful to them. Light asserts that “diversity on campus exerts an impact on learning both in and out of classes” (p. 160).
Summary of “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” In the article, “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” by, Andrew Hacker and Claudia Drefius there are many suggestions on how to reform colleges to make the price of admission worth it to students attending. One idea stated in the article was engaging all students; “professors must make an effort to reach their students” (180). The authors are suggesting that instead of just teaching day to day curriculum they should pay attention to how all the students are performing. Another point stated was that colleges are not pushing their students minds. Instead of worrying about the pay off the students should be concerned with developing all they can intellectually.
The SAT might have made sense when it was developed in the 1920s, when higher education was an elitist proposition and the college admission pipeline led a relatively homogeneous population of young adults into a similarly uni-dimensional set of colleges and universities (Creighton). Standardized testing is not good for all students because some students test better than others. There are some who have amazing GPAs and academically do well in school but might test very poorly. Parents have complained in the past to school administration that
“Being the average guy,” according to Bill Gates, means that you have a chance of thriving and living a decent life, even with an average talent level. While you might have a chance as a college student, foreign kids also want to go to universities in the United States. 11. “The great sorting out” is the inescapable march of technology and capital to remove all barriers, boundaries, frictions, and restraints to global commerce. 12.
A college education is about giving oneself the ability to have control over their life. David Foster Wallace speaks volumes to this point, as the true value of education lies not in the obvious benefits but rather in the deep seeded experiences that a student takes away with them and culminates in the form of tangible skills that can be utilized in real life. Commencement speeches tend to be motivational, celebratory, and inspirational, Although David Foster Wallace embodied these three subcategories in some capacity in his commencement speech at Kenyon College; he did so by presenting the graduating students with a piece of wisdom that they could use as they moved into their professional lives. David Foster Wallace informed the young
Fraternity leaders and university officials both agreed that they can’t ignore the issue just because the students have moved off campus. President Ruscio therefore supported the Amethyst Initiative which seeks to reopen the debate about the drinking age. Response: Heavy drinking among college students represents a significant public health problem which if left unchecked will ruin college education. The article explains how social clubs like fraternities permit students to drink but did not provide guidelines on how to drink and have fun responsibly. I think as future leaders, college students should be aware that their behavior is always on the limelight and be more careful when involved in situations such as binge drinking.

Advertisments and advertisers from for-profit colleges have different methods toward the students they target. Recruiters look for people who know very little about for-profit colleges. The people who are willing to give advertisers the time to listen and believe what they say are who they search for. Listening to a recruiter from a college makes people feel that they’re capable of being in college, in some way it boosts their self-confidence to make them feel just as smart as everyone else in college. Kayla Webley from Educational Financing shares her thoughts on the higher education policy, Low-income below poverty students ranging from 18 to 26 are who advertisers search for to bring into their school because of the student loans they will be piled on with.
If you take extra classes (or credits) but they are soft-ball classes (like basket-weaving or calisthenics), this looks just as bad. The best high school transcript will show consistent grades in a challenging course load with challenging classes. AP classes or advanced classes impress colleges and tell them that you are ready for college–level work You won't impress an admissions committee by asking for a tour of the all–night study lounge. Yes, colleges want bright students. But even more, they want bright, well–rounded students.
