College athletes should be exempted from regular class-attendance policies
Exercise is healthy for the body so it's great when you are an athlete. But you don't have to be an athlete only, you should have another profession besides that if something happened to your body. It's better to have two professions when you are an athlete. If the first one doesn't work, the second will do. So no, college athletes should not be exempted from regular class-attendance policies. Even though there are some athletes with one leg or one arm who are still capable of practicing their profession, always have another option.
