Selim Kafafy Politics, These days we hear this word quite a lot. To some of us politics is everything that has to do with governments, to some extend this definition is correct. But the true definition of politics is : “the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, esp. the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power�. Politics is being able to convince people with something, that they might not believe in. Throughout this essay we will be exploring the idea of how politics might be related to education and student life, we will be discussing what it means to be a college student from the political perspective? We will be viewing this idea form a logical extreme, and from an emotional extreme. And in the end we will be trying to come up with a third point of view that compromises between the two, let’s call it the synthesized point of view. We need to clarify how within college a student starts to discover his political tendencies, and take a side, either a leftist, or a rightist. Leftist being the conservative party like the muslim brotherhood in Egypt, and the democrats in the States. And the Rightists being the liberals in Egypt, and the Republicans in The States. We will be also exploring how the Egyptian revolution helped shaping the political scene in egypt, and we will try to understand the source of the political awareness that came about the youth of Egypt, who were the reason for the revolution; bare in mind that they are students, and thus we will try to understand which education could have resulted in such awareness. In the fast changing political scene of Egypt, students go through different aspects that make them make up their minds about what they want to do, and what they wish their country to be. They get to chose whether they want to be leftists, rightists, etc. In 2006
