Topic 10 The Purpose of College Education
The Purpose of College Education
Nowadays，with the policy of college enrollment expansion in China，higher education is no longer the privilege to the top students. The past decade has witnessed a steady increase in the percentage of people owning college diploma from 8. 3 to 23. 5.
However，every coin has two sides. Every year so many graduates pour into the employment market and greatly intensify the competition in job hunting. Plenty of them remain unemployed. Consequently，“Uselessness of study" prevails among some people who adopt a negative attitude toward higher education and believe it futile to pursue a degree.
As far as I am concerned，the purpose of university education is not only to equip students with knowledge and professional skills，but to cultivate qualified citizens to deal with various challenges with full developed character and talent. Therefore，as college students，we should value the learning opportunity to perfect ourselves for the future competition.(149词)
