The competition for college is becoming more and more fierce but the more difficult part about going to college is that many students are having a hard time affording college. So, many students are turning to sports for their scholarship opportunities although obtaining a sport’s scholarship is more difficult than one can imagine. Some say however, that going to college should not be the only motivation for playing sports.
Going to college these days is something that everyone aspires to do. In today’s society a bachelor’s degree is equivalent to a master’s degree making it even more of a necessity. However, getting into college has proved to be a larger obstacle than one would expect as the requirements are getting more and more difficult. In order to earn a leg up in the competition, many students are turning to sports but being a student athlete is also much more difficult than one would imagine as managing sports and academics is a very tight rope.
