I just read an article about colleges may check an applicant’s Facebook page. I agree that could be a good thing. They are wanting “students who are upstanding citizens in every way”.
That’s great! Then colleges and universitys, get your act together. Too many colleges are not challenging students. They can come and just party all the time and still graduate with a degree and a high debt. If you want upcoming citizens, then treat them as such.
College students should be challenged and worked for the money they are paying for education anymore. The professors need to step up and give assignments that require students to work for their grade. Get the students out in the community and prove that you want upstanding citizens and not just partiers.
I completely agree with colleges checking Facebook pages, but also believe they need to step up theie act and get students who want to learn and not just party.
