Okay, well “sucks” is a little harsh but recently YouTube star Ryan Higa made a spoof video for a fake college with real issues that we as students face.
Here, watch the video, it’s pretty funny, but depressing…
Unfortunately college students are faced with these problems that don’t allow us to fully enjoy college like we should. The article is titled
“College is a money-devouring, time wasting Purgatory in an “honest’ recruitment ad- a parody so pointed it’s painful.” (Kiefaber)
While reading through the comments I found that most viewers agreed that it would be funny if it weren’t so true and depressing.
College promises us a degree, if we choose to spend our time here. Some students can’t handle the pressure and cost that comes along with a degree and drop out. With this degree, we eventually (or so we like to think) will get a job which will lead to money.
Simple equation…sort of. Personally, I have questioned dropping out of college numerous times because of the workload. I am a transfer and I went to a party school in Michigan before where the expectations were basically to show up to class. That’s one end of the spectrum but the other end is studying night and day and being so stressed out you can’t think.
Whether your issue is wanting more time to explore the city and hang out with friends and enjoy your youth before being out in the real world, or to have expenses cut dramatically, I’m sure college is stressing you out in some way. My parents described college as laid back and fun, and yes they went to class but they had a life outside of classes too.
“I never thought I’d wish to be back in high school again!”
I do value my education, and it sure is worth it. I think my time spent in classes will hopefully show that I am a hardworker and that Loyola is definitely rigorous. I am fun-loving so my personal view is that the course load could be a lot lighter and more time alotted for projects. I know the real world is full of deadlines but c’mon go easy on us.
