Binge drinking is the sort of drinking that a student does before he or she goes out for the night. It consists of students sitting in a dorm room, or off-campus apartment drinking as much hard liquor as possible. Many students have become very ill from this and some have even been hospitalized. It is a common practice among 18, 19, and 20 year old students who attend college. The reason students binge drink is because in 10988, all fifty states changed their drinking age to 21 because the government basically forced them to.
Rhetorical Analysis: Regarding the Pain of Others Susan Sontag writes “Regarding the Pain of others”. It is an essay which is based in the medium of the photography. In this essay Susan examines the way that war is seen into some factors, for example culture and sex; and the form that people can see and recognized these factors are by imagines that show what happened in certain event.

College Drinking: The Price to Pay for Higher Education College students spend approximately 42 million dollars yearly on alcohol(Pedersen, Fall 2002, p. Pg 26). College drinking is a growing problem among colleges and universities across the country. It has been estimated that at least ten percent of college students are problem drinkers, or "pre-alcoholics." This problem is a serious one. Each year, more and more students resort to college drinking for a number of various reasons.
Though in Naylor’s case it is when she was a young child, and in Bosman’s she was and undergraduate in college, both authors use personal life experiences. Both pieces also show how expressing certain ideas/terms can be harmful, but also show an understanding of a community and it’s reaction towards thoughts and people. Both pieces also seem to talk about the appropriateness of certain things, though in A Word’s Meaning, it is about terms used to describe other human beings and in The (No) Free Speech Movement, it is about the appropriateness of timing, and content of advertising in a college campus newspaper.

In my opinion John Singleton looks at this from different sides of black. By what I mean is that he looks at it from the educated (professor Phipps), non educated (Malik), militant (Fudge), and somewhat tolerant (Deja) view. Malik thinks he is going to get a full ride because he is a black athlete. Back then that is exactly what happens. Before the NBA players had to wear suits before a game and the NBA enforced the rule that you had to do a year in college before you got drafted, the athletes of high school and college were getting a free ride.

At 18 there are still some individuals in high school which means even younger kids can get access to alcohol, which, in turn, would create a whole new generation of binge drinkers. There is a group called Support 21 Coalition that works their lives around finding factual data around the pros of keeping the drinking age where it is at. Since the law passed in 1984 to raise the drinking age to 21 they have estimated there has been over 25,000 lives saved, that is about 1,000 lives per year (Dean-Mooney 10). This is all due to less car crashes and other alcohol related deaths. Jepsen 4 As we all know underage drinking is not a big surprise to anyone.
We try to fit everything into one day and then work into the night to accomplish the impossible. According to “How Sleep Debt Hurts College Students”, by June J. Pilcher and Amy S. Walters, “College students are not aware of the extent to which sleep deprivation impairs their ability to complete cognitive tasks…”. Even if we get only a few hours of sleep, we college students use a variety of methods to try and beat Mr. Sandman. From coffee to energy drinks to pinching ourselves, there are many ways we try and cram as much as possible into a 24-hour period. One question I have come across in my years as a student isn’t the how we say awake, but the why we stay awake.
