  • Closed Campus Rule
    1,348 words
    OPEN CAMPUS OR BUST Michael Parker is a teacher from a high school who has closed campus and doesnt even think that it is working. It hasnt reduced the number of bad things students do, merely relocated them (Parker, 1997, 1). Thats what the very respectable teacher said about the so called solution of closed campus. If closed campus doesnt eliminate problems, the new Reeds burg High School and school board shouldnt make such a foolish rule. The lack of freedom will create more problems than it ...
  • Advantage Of Open Campus
    610 words
    Westview High School is a closed campus school, which limits the freedom and movement of students through out the day. While millions of other students around the country enjoy a open campus. We are trapped in the same routine day after day. We see the same people everyday, eat the same caritiria food, and walk the same crowded halls. First off Westview, like many other schools, is full of kids who get too stressed out by the long days, and sometimes just feel the need to take a break from their...
  • High School Student

    Students, you, as well as I, have always felt the strain of limitations brought upon you this and past school years. These past years, the school board has been closing students' ability to do almost what they please to an oppressive detention in which you cannot even walk the hallways to get a sip of water. How many times have you or heard that someone has been given a detention for just walking around the halls? How many times have you been hassled for trying to go to your car and sent back in...
  • Stages For The Syracuse University Carrier Dome
    359 words
    During the early planning stages for the Syracuse University Carrier Dome, no one even dreamed of locating it on or even near the campus. Speculation came from all over the community and from stadium architects. Some suggestions included a block of the downtown area, the State Fairgrounds, Bridge Street, opposite the General Electric plant and even as far as Baldwinsville. It was finally a former landscape architect for the University that suggested the best place would be on campus. No reda Rot...

  • Open Campus Policy
    302 words
    The subject that I want to discuss is not about a place or an object but of a privilege. In Cheltenham High School, there was this 'privilege' known as 'open campus. ' This privilege allowed many upperclassmen to get some time away from school and relax at some other environment, whether it be the park or home. This was the single most awesome experience I had at high school. From my understanding, the school does not have this policy anymore. Eventhough I don't attend the school anymore, I want...

  • Drinking Climate
    820 words
    This week's selections of articles from the AE reader were both interesting and thought provoking. The first article "Drinking to get Drunk", details the growing concern of binge drinking on college campuses across the country. I thought it was very interesting that 23% of students are "frequent binge drinkers" whereby frequent binge drinking is operationally defined as those who consumed at least five drinks in a row at one point during any two week period. This is startling number when thinkin...
  • Open Campus During The Lunch Hour
    679 words
    Wandering kids... Bumper to bumper traffic... Drug dealing... Is this the picture drawn when local students have fifty minutes of freedom during lunch to do whatever they please? Students should not be allowed to leave their school campus during lunch. An open campus would lead to truancy, disturb local businesses and neighborhoods, and cause crime. Truancy can occur among students if an open campus is accepted. If students have the privilege to leave school for fifty whole minutes on their own,...
  • Student Protest Movement
    1,758 words
    A Battle of Rights The Student Protest Movement of the 1960's was initiated by the newly empowered minds of Americas youth. The students who initiated the movement had just returned from the "Freedom Summer" as supporters of the Civil Rights Movement, registering Black voters, and they turned the principles and methods they had learned on the Freedom Rides to their own issues on campus. These students (mostly white, middle class) believed they were being held down by overbearing University rules...
  • Student Support For The Fsm
    967 words
    The Free Speech Movement started as a dispute over 26 feet of sidewalk and escalated into a pitched battle for control of the University of California at Berkeley. In the process, an entire school, students and faculty alike, was polarized into two camps fundamentally at odds with each other, both ideologically and in terms of rhetoric. The Free Speech Movement represented the adoption of civil rights protest techniques-pickets, sit-ins, and other non-violent methods-in a hitherto untested arena...
  • City Of Kent And Students
    3,466 words
    The Kent State Shooting On the fourth of May, 1970, the world was shocked by what happened on the campus of Kent State. The unnecessary deaths of four students and the wounding and maiming of nine more was enough to shock the world. A peaceful demonstration turned into a blood bath when the National Guard opened fire on the protesters. Students came out on the Kent State campus and scores of others to protest the bombing of Cambodia, a decision of President Nixon's that appeared to expand the Vi...
  • Safe An Environment With Alcohol On Campus
    2,273 words
    With dismaying regularity, news reports detail the excesses, and the deaths, of vibrant college students, their promise and their talent compromised or extinguished. For university "caretakers"- from the president to the student affairs office, to the faculty- alcohol abuse by students prompts sadness, anger, sometimes defeat, and often frustration (Issues pg. 1). Some 83% of the students in the most recent, Core Alcohol and Drug Survey said they drank, and 43% reported some form of violence (ar...
