Deficit of Commitment Why College cannot be for Everyone

Many young high school graduates hope to go to college and become successful thereafter.

Some, however, lack the commitment and endurance it takes to earn a degree in college.

It is time to stop allowing people into college who are not serious about furthering their education.

Colleges are losing money and time. Financial aid is handed out to uncommitted students who quit college. Time is being wasted trying to help them obtain a degree.
College is a prestigious educational opportunity that should be earned through hard work. It should not be given as a free hand out to people who show a lack of commitment and dedication.

Admissions officers in Eastern Michigan University could help save money for the college to use elsewhere.

The time and money saved by being more selective could be used for other things that would benefit both the students admitted and the facilities that make the college.
