These as well as being able to pull all-nighters, and drink an in ornament amount of alcohol with little side effect are all reasons this drug appeals to college students. “I didn’t feel like I was becoming smarter or even like I was thinking more clearly. I just felt more directed and less distracted by rogue thoughts, less day-dreamy, (3)” said a Joshua Foer, a journalist who, after consulting many physicians, decided to try Adderall for himself. Since many students assert that they use Adderall only for studying for large tests and completing important assignments, the risk of dependency is high. “I don’t think I’m addicted.
College Binge Drinking College is a time of discovery and learning. It is a time when students develop new ideas and form new habits. One of these habits is drinking binge drinking. College students in fact drink more than their peers who are not in college (Wechsler 987). Problems arising from college drinking have risen proportionally by 7% since 1998 (Hingson 15).

Leonhardt give two main reasons why the increasing student debt and startling tuition costs aren’t normally a problem for graduating students. First off, once you look into college tuition rates and any financial aid is taken into account, average fees and tuition were only about $2,000 at public four-year colleges(647). His next big point
After reading the essay “On the uses of a Liberal Education as Lite Entertainment for Bored College Students” by Mark Edmunson, published 1997, I gained more knowledge about America’s education in universities nowadays. The essay, at first, makes me feel like an evaluation, but gradually the paper has revealed itself as a persuasive work. During my analysis of this paper I noticed a few interesting things about it: The author lays out all of his evidence first then presents his point at the end In his essay, Edmunson claimed that most students today consume their education rather than interact with it. He made a remarkable point in saying how he wanted his students to connect with him. This being said; it doesn’t mean they had to like him or dislike him for that matter, but to actually learn life skills from his class due to one on one personal connections.
After reading the title of the article and seeing the date of the publication, I felt that this article would consist of up-to-date opinions about how binge drinking is becoming more popular in colleges across America. The author states how students will fall into the campus life and participate in campus rituals. Students will want to experience or celebrate their freedom with their fellow students by binge drinking. For those students who are not allowed to drink freely in a public facility such as a bar or club will simply turn to drinking in their dorms or other non public places. This problem can lead to hospitalization or even death.
Kamenentz presents the idea of an early voting permit that would be available to those 16 year olds who pass a simple civics test like the test taken to obtain US citizenship. She compares the permit to driving permits and mentions the decrease of fatatlities with graduated licensing. Voter registration would increase with this permit and students would view voting as a right and privilege. Kamenentz goes on to say that this leeway of privileges should not stop at voting. She says we should extend the privilege of a restricted drinking permit.
and majority of the commercials are alcohol related. It makes me want to open a bottle of beer and start drinking. I believe images and messages from the media cause teens to drink at a younger age and make drinking seem not only acceptable, but also desirable. The media has a huge influence on young teenagers the multiple advertisements on alcoholic drinks captivates their eyes and pulls them towards drinking. Studies have shown in 2007 at John Hopkins University that, “among a
With this frame of mindset, it’s extremely important for the federal government to uphold and keep the drinking age at a constant. As teenagers mature into young adults, peer pressure and social influences become factors that may contribute towards irresponsible decisions. Since 1984, the federal drinking age was raised to 21, which tremendously benefited teens and young adults in the United States (Kirszner, Mandell 458). Drinking is among the greatest misleading decisions made among individuals at parties, especially in college, so it’s always necessary to maintain responsibilities. Currently, college students mainly drink due to the convenience of accessibility to obtain substances from older acquaintances or friends who also enjoy having a good time.
Each year, more and more students resort to college drinking for a number of various reasons. In order to solve this problem, we must consider what causes college students to drink so excessively.
