University is no longer afresh word to people nowadays. Since the beginning of thiscentury, more andmore youngsters choose to enter university after they have completed thestudyin high schools rather than to join the army or become an apprentice.Therefore,it is kind of interesting to find out the reasonbehind.
First of all, students can only learnfundamental knowledge during high school whilethey are able to focus on their owninterested majors in universities. This period is the key toknowledgeaccumulation, which will contribute a lot to the future of an individual.Moreover,university is no doubt the symbol of high education. It offers morethan pure knowledge. Adegree from a university gives people certain identitythat makes them stand out among their competitors. It can be seenfrom the fact that most of the internationalcompanies will only hire those whohave at least a Bachelor's degree it can be seen from the fact that;
Sincere dreams mightalso be the reason for university or college. For instance, inthe 60s and 70s,people in China experienced hard times. Many of them had to give upadvanced education and take up the burdens of life at their early age. Now, as theybecame parents or even grandparents, their dream for university education hadnodoubt realized by their younger family members. Those young people, asreported, oftenstudy very hard in order to fulfill theexpectations of two generations.
There is no doubt that university can bethe turning point of one's future, because highereducation will provide peoplewith not only knowledge prepared for their careers, but also thefulfillment of their life goals. Meanwhile, the society has improved its strength to sponsorhighereducation. Compared with the past, people now attend universities also because they areable to secure various scholarships and supports from different channels. A very goodexample is that many Chinese students are nowstudying in the U. S. Theirincentive motivation for application should be attributed to not only to their ownperformance but alsothe comprehensive education frameworks in the U. S.
Broadly speaking, people who study inuniversities have their hopes: to fulfill themselves. At thesame time, our society generously provides such an environment for people to achieve suchgoals.Therefore, when we see more and more fresh smiles on the campus of universities, let usjust wish them a promising future.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Two people can become good friends even if one of them has more money than the other.
Generally, I disagree with statements that two persons cannot be friends if one is richer than the other. From many TV plays and movies, we always can see that after long time of crucifixion, a poor boy and a rich girl eventually become friends. However, these fairy-tale stories only have chance to appear in fairy tale. In the reality , this will never happen because rich people and poor people have different goals of lives and different life styles.
To begin with, poor people and rich people have different goals of living. Even from the beginning of their lives, they undertake the different missions. Since poor people were born, their goal of living has never changed, which is leading a decent life, such as buying a spacious apartment, a nice car and having a happy family . However, rich people’ s goal of living is to continue their parents’ business. For example, poor people will talk about housing loan, but when rich people sit together, they will talk about buying which building just taken shape. So we can imagine when rich people and poor people discuss the houses, it is self-defeating for rich people and embarrassing for poor people.
Secondly, rich people and poor people have different ways of living. On this point, poor people will definitely repel rich people because poor people feel less confident. For example, when they finish their jobs, what poor people only can do every day is to go back homes and stay with their families, while rich people can have different choices to relax themselves. For instance, rich people can go to the golf courts to enjoy the fresh air and indulge themselves into pleasure of getting closer to the nature. Poor people can only sit in front of TV to see the soap operas.
Admittedly, exceptions do exist in some special aspects. Basketball player serve as good examples. In NBA, about 50 percent of players were born in slums. However, when they finally own tons of money, they still are contacting with their friends who were not rich at all. Allen Iverson is a NBA player, but he always holds the parties with his friends in slums.
All in all, in most cases, people with huge difference in their economic conditions cannot be friends.
