Many artists, dancers and musicians are on scholarship, too. What's the difference? The Athlete majors could be open for paying students as well. How do the performing arts schools do it, do they have auditions/submit porfolios? The big difference would be the percentage of scholarship vs non-scholarship students would be a lot different, but football teams already have walk-on players.dressedcheesid: There is one problem with this idea. All the other majors and minors are career paths and the students have to pay the college in order to obtain these teachings regarding their careers. The football players are getting free scholarships, some stipends, free food, free housing, tutors, etal, so they are bieng paid for their career training. I can't see how the administration could mesh the two.
