Sports or libraries?
Some people think that universities should give same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give to their university libraries. Other people think that universities should give more money to their university libraries than to their students’ sports activities. If asked, they would present compelling arguments to corrobrate to their assertions. In my opinion, universities should give more money to the university libraries than to the students’ sports activities.
Admittedly, it is a reasonable argument that universities should give same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give to their university libraries. It is true that sports activities will help students spend healthy school life but it is more important to spend money on the libraries condsidering the mission of universities.
First of all, universities should have various kinds of books for each major to enable students to study their majors fully. According to the recent suvey conducted by one American company, at least three hundreds of books are needed to each major to give enough information for each subject. This survey indicates that to have enough budget for the libraties is essential for univeristies.
On the top of that, if universities have enough books for all majors, students can broaden their views for other majors and this is very important for the university students. When I was a university student in Japan, I originally majored economics. However, I have read in the school library some books with respect to the civil law one day and soon have been fascinated by the logic of laws. I changed my major from economics to laws and am now very satisfied with this dicision. This well indicates that to have a varieties of books will broaden the choice of students.
For the above reasons, I personally think that universities should give more money to university libraries than to their students’ sports activities.
