Sports and social activities Score: 4 January 13th, 2019 by GUOMI

When it comes to the topic whether sports and social activities at universities are equally important as classes, different people hold different opinion. Some people believe the formers are just as important as the later, others don't think so. From my prospective, I believe it is true the two should receive equal financial support. The reasons are as follows.

Firstly, study is the main task for the university students, so it is necessary for the students to achieve high score in their exam. In order to gurantee the academic study of the students, the university must improve their classes' quality including improving the teachers teaching abilities and the the condition of the classroom. Take my university for example, every year in order to advance students' study ability, school provide a great amount of money to the support the teaching and class. Besides, a big library is essential to help the students enrich their outside classes. After classes, the students often have much assignment to finish, which must search much information in different books. A big library with many new books will be helpful. Also, at university, there are much spare time that students can arrange. Undoutely, going to the library to read books is a very benefitial thing for the students. As we can see almost every famous university absolutely have at least one big library.

Secondly, the students must through many social activites to practice themsevels in order to improve their abilities which will help them find a good job in the future. It is well-known that in the working places abilities is as the same important as classes. So the purpose of education is not only teaches students knowledge, but also promotes the development of their various abilities, including team spirits, sports skills and communication abilities.Only by doing so, can students meet the needs of the society and find a good job after they graduate. For example, by participating the club activites, students can learn how to communicate and cooperate successfuly with other people.

And also taking the sports can help them to strength their body health which is the foundamental factor for study and other things. So a big sports ground is necessary to be built in the universities. It is hard to imagine that what will happen when whichever one of the two are missing in the university.

Above all,in order to be a excellent university graduate, students must not only acquire good acdemice performance, but they also need to have many other abilities. So the universities have equally responsibility to financal support both classes and sports.
