It is August again, in the passing "Dark July", thousands of Chinese students took part in a very important exam in their life. Sometimes I would think, students study hard to get better scores, to enter better colleges, but why they need to go to colleges? Why they work so hard to enter colleges? Why college plays so important a part in one`s life.

At first, college should be a place for people to study deeper knowledge. In that case, not everybody needs to go there. But in modern time, society requires higher educational level. There are many jobs which could be done by high school students, but are being done by people who are better educated. Everybody wants to live a better life, hopes to have a better job . In these days, it is nearly impossible to attain a ideal job without good grates from good colleges. Most people attend colleges to graduate, to make their resumes more attractive, to get a better job.

From another aspect which we cannot ignore, there are still some people go to college to study, to absorb knowledge. People such as teachers, programmers, and scientists have to study hard because their work has a high requirment of professional knowledge. People who want to become those careermen would attend college for the original reasons for colleges: knowledge.

Although these two reasons cannot completely divide people who go to colleges into two groups, I believe they are the two main points. Absolutely there are many other reasons like new experiences, ability to cooperate etc, the two reasons I talked about influence most Chinese youth.

No matter what are your reasons for attending college or university, I hope you can learn somthing from it, have some happy experiences, and let the time you in it be a beautifu and significant period in your life.
