First day of college

scenario 1
Scenario 1

Two friends go off to two different college…. And both graduate one is well educated and speaks as if she/he is educated. The other talks as if he never attend college nor graduate and he doesn’t have a job…. Should we blame colleges for the personality and the behavior of college graduates.


I wouldn’t blame the college. I would blame the friend, because clearly this is the result of his choices while he was in college.

scenario 2
Scenario 2

A boy just started college three weeks ago his mother is a teacher and his father is a pastor who loves his BOY…. When he's around campus he’s cool walking around all coupled up with girls but in the evening he secretly drinking heavily. He wakes up his roommate when he and his friends come in to crash and end up vomiting and passing out in the room. His roommate is upset because this is happening every night lately and he has warned that if he keeps waking him up at 3:00smevery night that he is going to inform the resident assistant (RA) of the dorm.


After many warnings, I would be tired too. Frankly, I would have already arranged for him to be banned after the third time that he pulled this little charade.
