Writing Research Papers for Fellow College Students

It is not a good idea to write research papers for fellow students because you're teaching them that it is okay to not study hard and prepare thoroughly for typing the paper. You're also hurting the professor because he will not get the chance to read the students' original research paper. As a college student you should help fellow students if they need assistance with writing the paper but you shouldn't write it for them because you want to hold them accountable for the way they handle academic life. Here are other reasons why you shouldn't write papers for students.

You Promote Immaturity

Immaturity is one reason why some college students ask others to write research papers and this is because these college students lack the time management skills and motivation to write the paper. Other college students ask others to write their research papers because they had this same habit while in high school. Each time you write a college student's research paper you are promoting his immaturity.

You Cannot Reproduce His Beliefs in the Research Paper

Another reason why it is not good to write a fellow student's college paper is because you will not be able to write his beliefs in a way that best represents him in the paper, especially when you may hold to the opposing view of the topic. It is better for the student to write the paper on his own because he can control what goes in the paper and he may have more to say on a particular subject than you do.

You Have Less Time For Your Own Work

It is actually disrespectful for a fellow college student to ask you to write his research paper because if you write his research paper you will not have time to work on your own assignments. As a result, your work suffers and you get bad grades. If a student do work you to write his paper, tell him no because you need to focus more on working on your own assignments.

College students must learn how to do their own work if they are going to succeed in the classroom and in the workforce. While you are in college you will need to learn how to do work independently because this is how it works when you enter your new job.
