Social Practice for College Students
Nowadays, college students are required to take part in some social practice, such as being an assistant in companies, or doing surveys, especially during the holidays.
Social practice is gradually becoming more essential for China’s higher education. However, social practice has both advantages and disadvantages for college students. On the one hand, it provides students more opportunities to contact with the real world off-campus; besides, it helps students to grasp some practical skills, especially communication skills, which is an essential supplement to on-campus study; moreover, social practice can widen students’ vision. On the other hand, the negative effects can not be neglected: students’ major task is learning knowledge, while curiosity about off-campus world may distract them; sometimes social practice is even treated unseriously and becomes a waste of time; furthermore, the students may be faced with dangers unexpectedly.
Despite the potential negative effects of social practice, I strongly support social practice for college students, since as a whole, the benefits overwhelm the likely harm. Two heads are better than one, if students, schools, and the society join hands together,social practice can be carried out more effectively and better armed students for the society can be expected.overwhelm [.əuvə’welm] vt. 淹没，打击，压倒
