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 prerequiste 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 atill 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 anf this is a heavy burden.If the students health
imporved,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.Boht libraries and sports activities are
indispenable for unicersity,so it is wise for unicversities give the same amount of money to their
student activities as they give to their libraries.
