Why Do I Attend University?
Every summer hundreds of thousands of young students attend the college entrance examination, lighting hard to be among the lucky ones to enter universities. But have this large crowd asked themselves such a question: why do you want to go to university? It will be dangerous if so many people try so hard to do something without a clear purpose. For me, going to university can fulfill three important proposes.
The most direct motive for going to university is to secure a good job in the future. / With the largest population in the world, China is certain to be a gathering place of the labor force.

I was usually fascinated by what teachers taught in various causes, and this curiosity drives me to know more. I have found that things taught in high school are just on a very basic level. If I want to dig deeper, the best place is here at university. With the help of professors and books, I can find the knowledge more thoroughly and systematically. I won't be satisfied with my life unless I can satisfy my curiosity for knowledge in the university.
The most profound motive for going to university is to make some contribution. Due to the influence of my paresis, I do not just want to support myself in the society; I also want to do something for the society. Of course I don't have to go to university in order to make this contribution, but 1 find that more education can surely help me do it better. / History reveals that those who have made more contributions are invariably better educated. Great figures like Newton, Einstein are all well educated. / How can I make more contributions without university education?
Therefore, three motives drive me into the gate of my university. I come here for a good job, for more knowledge, and most importantly, far better contribution. I am sure with the knowledge I learn here, I will achieve the other two purposes. And I am also sure that other people will also find university education rewarding to their life.
