believe that there is need for compensation for such athletes for their opportunity costs. On the other hand, Comper & Hutchison (2015, p. 64) argues that college athletes should not be paid since athletics as a sport forms part of the college designed syllabus for learning. It is also important to note that, most college athletes are of the age below 19 years, and in this case, there is likelihood to mismanagement the money that probably would attract the issues of immorality ("Should College Student-Athletes Be Paid? Both Sides of the Debate," 2015). Besides, the primary objective for most colleges is to provide education through learning, and as studies have shown, remunerating the students for their co-curricular activity might prevent them from properly achieving their educational goals through regularly missing classes. This is what makes it a professional issue, as far as schools are concerned. In addition, and due to the under age, the aspect of unfair compensation arises as there is no clarity on the worth of each athlete. Finally, most of the college athletes are driven by passion, however, by allowing them for compensation discourages the latter by encouraging the monetary passion, which in fact loses the sense of entertainment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
