On College Students’Occupying Seats
1.在大学校园里,占座是很普遍的现象 2.有人认为,大学生课前占座是不文明的行为,也有人持不同意见 3.我的看法 【精彩范文】 On College Students’Occupying Seats In English, there is an expression “First Come, First Served” (FCFS). This stresses the need for orderliness, which also applies to college students’ searching for seats in the reading rooms of a library. However, in China, things are somehow complicated. Instead of occupying seats with their own persons, students tend to use books, backpacks or other personal objects to stand for their “legitimate” ownership of the seats.To such extent, the emergence of such a practice, now almost ubiquitous on all campuses, is justified. The seats for students to conduct self-study are limited and university authorities should endeavor to increase such facilities to satisfy students’ needs. At least, students’ efforts to fight for seats indicate they are enthusiastic about their studies—their academic initiatives should be duly recognized and encouraged! However, using personal belongings to occupy seats may exacerbate the scarcity of facilities—some irresponsible students might never turn up, sometimes even for days. They waste the precious resources and damage the interests of other students who have real needs. Such behavior deserves unconditional criticism and condemnation. Both university authorities and students should do their best to solve the problem. The authorities should create more reading rooms to satisfy students’ needs whereas students should not waste the already limited resources. In this way, an optimum allocation of resources can be realized and all students would enjoy their studies. 【参考译文】 论大学生的占座行为 在英语里有个说法,叫做“先到者先得”。它强调的是,人们必须遵守秩序。这一点也适用于大学生们在学校图书馆的阅览室里寻找座位的行为。然而,在中国,事情似乎稍显复杂。学生们不是亲身去占有座位,而往往是用书本、书包或其他个人物件来代表他们对于某个座位的“合法”占有权。 在某种程度上,这种在每个校园里几乎无所不在的做法有其合理之处。学生们用于进行自习的座位数量有限,学校当局应尽力去增加此类设施,以满足学生们的需求。不管怎么说,学生们努力去争夺座位,表明他们热衷于他们的学习——他们的学习主动性应得到应有的认可和鼓励。然而,用个人物品去占座,却很有可能使设施的匮乏更趋严重——有些不责任的学生可能一整天甚至数天都不会现身!他们浪费了宝贵的资源,损害了其他真正有需求的学生的利益。这种行为理应受到无条件的批评,乃至谴责。 无论是校方还是学生们自己,都应尽力去解决这一难题。校方应开辟更多的阅览室来满足学生们的需求,而学生们也不应去浪费早已捉襟见肘的资源。如此一来,一种最佳的资源配置就能得以实现,而所有的学生终将尽享他们的学习。 【值得熟记的句式与短语】 1.
