In his research on Macdonalization of the society, George Ritzer explains the rampant change in the modern society in the adoption off the fast food culture. People have veered away from preparing food from scratch to buying the fast foods that get ready within minutes. Macdonalization has become a major concern based on serious health problems associated with it, including obesity and cancer. Tiffin University, like any other university in the world, has become Macdonalized. Students at the university prefer taking the minimum time possible in preparation and consumption of food. This is the reason that they have adopted the fast food culture. Macdonalization comes with time and money saving costs. The fast foods are cheaper and affordable as compared to the natural foods. The other benefit associated with the Macdonalization culture is that it has created business opportunities for students and some outsiders in the university. With time being a major factor in academic study, fast foods are gaining popularity in learning institutions. However, as Ritzer indicates in his research, they also come with some negative health impacts that are detrimental for the students.
