As many as 25% of teenagers have experienced cyberbullying, even though there is still more bullying at school in comparison to online. (Elizabeth Landau, 2013)Cyberbullying among preteens and teens has increased dramatically in recent years as young people spend more time socializing online, according to the Second Youth Internet Safety Survey. Cyberbullying includes sending hurtful or threatening e-mails or instant messages, spreading rumors or posting embarrassing photos of others. Young people who are victims of cyberbullying are more likely to report social problems and interpersonal victimization. Being victimized also increases their chances of harassing peers online themselves.
The discovery of a Google doc collection of Columbia University application essays became fodder for Gawker snark. And arguably the most viral bit of college-admission content ever was an op-ed earlier this year from a high schooler complaining about (or lampooning) the gap between university and applicant expectations. The whole notion of new media incursion into the staid realm of the application essay may sound a little fishy to you. But the reality is almost exactly the opposite of the knee-jerk stereotype. The influence of technology on the application process is more subtle; nobody is getting into a school because of a good tweet.
Has become so difficult It is clear from the beginning Beres’ target audience is: college students, who maybe even read the NYU school journal. Mr. Beres immediately starts into his argument—an argument that is not just present in the beginning, but throughout his article. He does not provide us the reader with any documented statistics, reports or journals to justify these assumptions of his. Throughout his entire article, there is no indication that any of his claims have truly been 4 Factual evidence. I personally would want more factual information, I find it hard to address a problem without fully understanding it.
I wonder what percentage of those students who didn’t get accepted withdrew the opportunity themselves because they couldn’t afford it once they got accepted. There can be so many reason why the school doesn’t accept 10K students a semester; by the way who wants to learn with another 1,000 students in the classroom. Beres doesn’t take the time to elaborate on different factors that come with college admission but instead attacks the College Board for no apparent reason. He has a valid claim that yes students’ needs to be given the chance, but lacks the supporting warrants he could have made. Instead of bashing the College Board about the common app he could have made a valid case by questioning the rising of college tuition which is a main factor that students aren’t
CIS111-Issue Analysis Dr. Joanna Cattafesta University Of Kentucky It is averaged that over 80% of teenagers are on social media regularly. Between cell phone use and computer technology developing, younger generations are becoming more apt to the use of technology. “Teenagers in particular use media for many purposes, including entertainment and distraction, but also exploration of significant developmental issues pertaining to curiosity, education, popularity, identity, gender roles, and sexuality”(Reaves, 2011). The media has become a problem in our day and age by brainwashing teenagers and giving them an unrealistic view on life. We live in a society and culture that values an individual’s beauty and thinness.
Lombardi and reporter Kristin Jones spent a year surveying schools’ and students’ on campus rape cases. Their conclusion from the survey was that campus sexual assault remains a hidden crime, in part, because there is no central clearinghouse for colleges to report cases and to record their dispositions. Ombardi claims more legislation is needed and that current ones need to be amended. Kristen Lombardi is a staff writer and an award-winning journalist from the Center for Public Integrity. Her investigation into campus rape cases for the Center won the Robert F. Kennedy Award and the Dart Award in 2011, which state her survey a recent source and very valuable.
Plans to Eliminate College Binge Drinking Nearly half of today’s college student population is stumbling through the college years due to binge drinking. Binge drinking on college campuses isn’t just an issue of public health, but it’s one of self-interest. Failure to act in the face of foreseeable harm places schools at risk for damaging their academic reputations and liability lawsuits in millions of dollars. Also, students experience a wide variety of alcohol related problems including hangovers, blackouts, and engaging in unplanned sexual activity. According to Lini Kadaba’s article, Colleges Hitting the Bottle Binge Drinking Remains High, but Initiatives at Area Schools Raising Awareness, “College binge drinking is remaining in colleges due to the intractable problems that contribute to 1,700 student deaths, 599,000 injuries, and 97,000 cases of sexual assault, or date rapes.” (24).
5 February 2011 The Power of Academic Conversations In Dr. Gibson break down Plato’s quote could at first listen by the average listener is inappropriate to describe the essence of college learning because it is unclear to indicate that it represents the essence of a college and a university education as I just read this quote. I don’t even know what she tries to say. In the quote, I just know that it is about conversation, but I don’t even know the following words what they represents if I do not keep read the follow paragraph. I am agree with Dr. Gibson says that it is very importance to have conversation at the college. As a college student, it would be so different from a high school student.

Rosie Anaya, a student in college wrote an essay last year about the physiological problems that affect our college students called, The Best Kept Secret on Campus. These problems can range from anxiety to depression to acute bipolar disorder. She talks about the staggering numbers of students with these problems and the lack of help from the universities. In this essay she states that a 2008 study found that “62% of students have experienced feelings of hopelessness, nearly 90% have felt overwhelmed or emotionally exhausted, nearly 50% have been so depressed they have trouble functioning, 15% have been formally diagnosed with depression and almost 10% contemplated suicide. These numbers are surprisingly high; however a vast majority of students are not receiving the help they need to deal with these major disabilities.
