Reading Hall  » Toefl Writing Practice - 3 / Topic 1

     1 People attend college or university for many different reasons (for example, new experiences, career preparation, increased knowledge). Why do you think people attend college or university? 

     Mr Taoxingzhi, the most famous educator in China, once said: the biggest misfortune in one’s life is that one does not receive a university education. Needless to say, a university degree often helps a person achieve his goal with more ease. However, do we attend a university just in pursuit of a degree? Does a university only provide us nothing beneficial besides a paper-made diploma? 

     As far as I am concerned, we enjoy a university education in the following aspects which attributes us to a university education: 

     Firstly, with the knowledge learned in a university, we will have a deep understanding of our society. It is true that genuine knowledge comes from practice, but it cannot be denied that genuine knowledge, tells us how to practice. A thorough study in a college or university, of course, enables us to realise how the society works and how to cope with certain problems arising from it in a more efficiently, more skilful way. 

     Second, a university education usually makes it possible that we acquire a decent job. Because of the accomplishment of a four-year study, it is not difficult for us to find a good job in most cases. 

     How can we imagine that a graduate majoring in astronomy has to be a vendor in the street! 

     Undoubtfully, he/she should sit in his/her laboratory, making research on aircraft on a computer. Obviously, a university education assures him/her a decent job. 

     Last, but not least, we can help others much better if putting what we learn in a university into use. A university education corrects our values, enhance our skills, and broaden our horizons. 

     With those, we are more capable of giving a hand to those who are in need of help than before. 

     “Knowledge is power”. When achieving a degree in a university, we can get a better understanding of the society, find a decent job in an easy way, and help others better. All of those are due to the knowledge learned in a university.
