AbstractThe basis of this project was to dig deeper into the major controversy surrounding college athletes and whether or not they should receive some sort of stipend while playing their respective sports. To gain further insight into this debate, interviews and surveys were used to collect data from varying target markets such as Athletic Directors, former collegiate athletes, current collegiate athletes, and other non-athletic students. This will provide various perspectives of the issue at hand. This study provided me with an in-depth look from each standpoint and addressed the benefits and problems of each side. After examining the results, I came to the conclusion that collegiate athletes, do indeed, deserve to receive some sort of compensation while they are involved in collegiate athletics.
