TOPIC: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Universities should give the same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give to their university libraries. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
In my point of view, sports activities are as important as, if not more important than, good libraries. So it is wise for universities to give the same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give their university libraries. There are numerous clear reasons and I would explore some important ones here.
First, good health is the prerequisite for future success. Universities are not only the place for students to expand their minds, but also a place for student to build their body. A good health is very essential for study and future success. In our university, there are several middle-aged teachers and researchers suffer from diseases, some even died when they were still at the acme of their academic achievements. This is a great loss for their families and our university.
Second, through sports activities, student can benefit both physically and mentally. Anyone who has played in a football game knows that the cooperation and competition are important for success. They are two basic traits for those who want to succeed, and student who can combine them harmoniously have better chance of success in the future.
Third, investment in sports activities can save money in the long run. In China, all of students medical expenses are patronized by government and this is a heavy burden. If the students health improved, a lot of money can be saved every year. With these money, universities can build more classrooms, laboratories and libraries.
Of course, good libraries are also important for universities. A good library with its large collection of books is the pride and symbol of a prominent university. Both libraries and sports activities are indispensable for university, so it is wise for universities give the same amount of money to their student activities as they give to their libraries.
