Has anyone ever enjoyed hearing a commencement address?
I work with and manage recent collage (within 10 years) grads in my job. All dopes. Nothing beats real world experience and plain old general common sense.
i didnt even go. why be ina school setting 1 more minute than u have to
My daughter graduated Seton Hall i have to say it was pretty cool.
yeah same here
Everything said on the video above is true- but i reject the notion that it all started with- "Oh, we need to put poor people in homes" or we need to give poorer kids an education.
Fuck that noise. The real reason is because individuals could profit on it. Banks, loaning services, colleges, construction companies/developers, real estate agents etc- they all like more and more business- so they lobby... they donate HUGE money to candidates- and those candidates support all this bullshit- perhaps these things about giving poor people a chance is what the politicians say out loud- but behind it all is money and Greed. To pretend this is just liberal thinking run amok is silly.
Those collage grads all seem to be little pieces of a larger picture.
my theory is do what u love, and money will come.
and if it doesnt, at least u had fun
If anyone knows something about bromides, boring advice and smug complacency, it's George Will. I'll give him "Your tuition is much too costly".
Students study less than they used to? Source? I'm honestly curious if this is true.
You want inspiration?!
When my wife got her second law degree in 2001, a judge from the 9th circuit spoke. It was interesting and void of politics, just inspirational targeted to the lawyers.
I seriously doubt that is a measurable statistic. Even if someone claims to be able to do it, they're just sampling people who have a bias towards lying about it anyway.
Bill Cosby actually gives great commencement speeches.
Just skip the after party
When you have some time listen to this one. It's very good.
2010 paper by two UCSB economists, covering a period from 1961 to 2003. Google shows it was widely reported on when it came out (NYT, WP, CBS, etc...)
Abstract: Using multiple datasets from different time periods, we document declines in academic time investment by full-time college students in the United States between 1961 and 2003. Full-time students allocated 40 hours per week toward class and studying in 1961, whereas by 2003 they were investing about 27 hours per week. Declines were extremely broad-based, and are not easily accounted for by framing effects, work or major choices, or compositional changes in students or schools. We conclude that there have been substantial changes over time in the quantity or manner of human capital production on college campuses.
