Is College really necessary? It seems to be today the higher education has become to much like High School. For one I don not think you should have to pay for College. Maybe a Graduates degree but to get and Undergrad degree I don't think you should have to pay. Other countries make this happen why can't America? It seems stupid to me that we have to put out thousands of dollars so that we can go to college to get a degree so we can get a job. Now a days Employers won't higher you without this degree. This creates a problem for those who don't have the money to attend college. Sure they can get scholarships but some can't. I find it ridiculous that we put so much money toward school when most of the classes are very high schoolish. The Education system desperately needs a makeover. The world is changing and education is being ignored. Maybe it's time the government starts doing something about it.
Another thing I have noticed is that the higher ups in the university have way to much power. They decide pay and give themselves to much money. At Southern Miss I feel the money we are paying as a student body to go here is being misused. Sure here and the they do something to benefit the campus but it seems lately that isn't the case.
Also the rules. It seems that Universities are cracking down creating more rules. Sure the 90's went wild and made everyone nervous about giving College students freedom but that doesn't mean this generation is the same. More rules on more campus' are being put in place about dorms, alcohol, and many other things.
It seems one thing that is deteriorating is Greek Life. Every year Sororities and Fraternities are getting smaller. Sure they were founded years ago and things in the world have changed but it's that common bond that keep them going. Though after the 90's more and more people don't want anything to do with Greek life. Greek Life has evolved over the years and now it is just an organization that you give tons of money to and you have a billion things you are required to do. Many times (not always) you loose that sense of a bond and friendship. I think Greek Life is a great thing but it as well needs a makeover.
We as a culture are stuck in a change. We are unable to get past this change and move on. It will be interesting to see where culture goes now and how things will develop.
Keep It Real
