INTRODUCTION

It’s a hot-button topic, and rightly so. On one hand, universities profit millions of dollars off of these student athletes, but some would argue that the scholarships they receive and the fact that these sports are a gateway to potential professional careers are enough compensation. We of comm39830 are leaning towards the latter view moreso than the former. We believe that colleges and universities are training gateways for the “real world”.

Regardless, through this blog we will explore the topic in-depth, and you can formulate your own opinions. Maybe our views will align or we may end in conflict. There’s really only one way to find out!
