Dear Kitos and friends. The following is another essay from me. Please correct it. Many thanks for your help.
topic: Why do you think people attend college or university? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
It goes without saying that many people would like to attend college or university. The question is why people attend college or university. From my point of view, I think that people attend college or university for three main following reasons.
First, people attend college or university to gain knowledge. In the university environment, people can acquire knowledge, especially knowledge of the profession, from professors, from lab experiments, and from libraries. For example, I am an electrical engineer. I have learned so much about knowledge of electrical engineering when I was a student at a university. The class lectures, and the research projects at laboratories have helped me obtain not only the knowledge of this field, but also the necessary skills of an electrical engineer. This knowledge and these skills now go with me in my career as a research assistant.
What is more, career preparation is another important reason. The knowledge that students acquire in university will be an important base for them to develop their profession. In addition, skills of the research experiments at Labs, skills of group working, and skills of finding information that student obtained in university will help them confidently totter in their career. But, the best of all is that this knowledge and these skills help students get good jobs.
Finally, people attend university because they want to have new experiences. Some said that the time they were in university is the most beautiful time in their life. They were fallen in line with friendship, and love. Some found their partner in life. They had been wedding after graduating. The mementos of picnics, student parties, festivals will be always in their mind. These experiences also help them find easy to fall in line with the real life after graduating.
In conclusion, for those aforementioned reasons, I believe that people attend college or university because they want to gain knowledge, to prepare career, and to have new experiences.
