Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Sports and social activities should have equal financial support as academic classes and libraries in universities and colleges.
With global finance experiencing an economic downturn all over the world, college funding has been reduced everywhere. As a result, leaders are discussing how to distribute funding at universities. Some people assert that raised money should be invested equally among sports and social activities, academic classes and libraries. However, I believe that the classes and libraries should be prioritized, especially considering the main purpose of a university and the financial demands of updating academic facilities.
First, the primary responsibility of universities and colleges is to teach and increase academic knowledge. Classes and libraries are the symbolic places of knowledge, and support to them increases the academic success of universities and colleges. For instance, the financial support given to our university library enabled it to invite Mr. John M., an expert in economic research and Nobel Prize winner, to give a speech in 2009. After his wonderful speech, many in the audience decided to turn their research into the direction of economics. With the enthusiasm inspired by Mr. M, these people are now exploring some interesting areas of economic research, which I believe will benefit this field.
Second, universities and colleges need investment to update their facilities. When the budget is spent on updating facilities of libraries and classrooms, universities and colleges can provide more advanced services to their students and professors. Take my classmate, Linda, as an example. She used to work on a paper on modern economics and she downloaded a set of data from the website of our library. It was said that these data had cost much of library’s budget. As she said, the data saved a lot of time for her. Without the data, she could not complete the paper so conveniently. Besides, the old teaching building at my university also needs to be repaired desperately. Obviously, this should take priority over any issues of sports or optional social events. Therefore, I insist that more money should be spent on updating libraries and classes.
Admittedly, sports and social activities are important parts of the university experience. I totally agree that students need to spend time in both to keep up their physical and emotional health. However, the financial support for these activities should not be equal with that given to academic needs, since these activities are not held so frequently. A normal student will spend most of the day in the classroom or library, but only a few hours a week on sports.
In conclusion, we have to admit that sports and social activities are important to the universities. However, universities and colleges are primary places for learning and research. Therefore, I maintain that libraries and classes should be prioritized in terms of financial investment.
首先，大学和学院的主要职责是传授及丰富学术知识。教室和图书馆是象征知识的场所，对它们的支持也会提升大学和学院的学术成就。例如，有了资金支持，我们学校图书馆在 2009 年邀请到经济学研究专家、诺贝尔奖得主约翰·M 先生来做演讲。在他精彩的演讲结束后，许多听众决定将他们的研究方向转向经济学。在 M先生激发的热情下，这些人如今正在探究经济学中一些有趣的领域，我相信这将对经济学领域有利。
综上，我们必须承认，尽管运动和社会活动对大学很重要，但大学和学院是学习和研究的主要场所。因此，我坚持认为资金应优先投入到教室和图书馆上。 范文点拨 范文根据话题给出五段。首段引出问题，表明笔者的观点为“在经费分配问题上， 学校应优先考虑教室和图书馆等学术设施”，并给出两点原因 ( 高校的责任和更新设施的好处 ) 作为铺垫，引出下文的论证。接下来的两个主体段分别说明两个原因，并分别给出案例分析。每段的长度控制在 6 ~ 8 句话。第四段为让步段，包含了让步论证和转折论证。尾段用了重申让步、重申原因、重申观点三句话结尾。
