A recent article in the local news has made me wonder about the point of going to college today.
Their are so many things you learn in college in and out of the classroom. I sometimes think I learned as much if not more about life and leadership from being a member of the football team (Go Oilers) and Fraternity (TKE RULES)then I did from classes. But everyone is different.
But hey college today is a must. You must go, you must fork over all the cash you have and you must borrow, borrow and borrow some more because the cost of higher education has increased more then any other item in our economy. I have been gone awhile but I hope the quality of our educators have increased accordingly and not just thier pay...but I doubt it.
But I read with interest that one of our local State Universities had an organized police crackdown on the first weekend of school.
That first weekend over 70 students were arrested and maybe even have had the course of their futures changed forever. Well you ask...what were the arrested for?
Some for drinking beer.....oh my!
Some for smoking grass.....oh no!
Some for uhm...fornicating in public....my gosh!
Now I know we are supposed to obey the laws and and I am not endorsing anything here but nor am I judging anyone.
But I have just one damn question......if you can't go to college today and drink some beer, smoke a little reefer if you want to try it and maybe have a intimate relationship with someone...what the hell are you going for?
Now I now there are some folks out there that were angels in school and never did and never have done anything they were not supposed to but I am sure glad they did not have this raid on my first weekend on campus.
