Student clubs, from the first day they came intobeing, have been encouraged and supported byuniversities throughout the world. With the aim ofenriching the social, practical and academicexperiences, they have also gained popularityamong both parents and students. Usually, the clubactivities should be feasible and beneficial tostudents in one way or another. Therefore, compared with tutoring primary school studentsand dealing with daily tasks for the old, I think building houses is a project that will yieldtangible results.
First, by designing and constructing a building, the students themselves will learn to transfertheir academic knowledge to practice. It has been widely acknowledged that the purpose ofeducation is to cultivate talents for society, the ones who are able to contribute to our betterquality of life. University students have spent at least twelve years accumulating knowledge, and it’s time for them to show the society what they have mastered. Building a house requiresknowledge of various aspects, from architectural design to construction engineering, frominterior design to the arrangement of the entire landscape, all of which can only beaccomplished with the joint effort by students of different majors. During the whole process, the club members will not only polish their professional skills, but also learn how tocooperate with others in a team. In this regard, assisting the old in their daily chores seems alittle trivial and time-consuming, since nothing except a slight sense of achievement will begained from this project.
Second, offering instructions in reading and mathematics to those younger school age childrenis by no means an easy job for university students. Do not assume that those future socialelites are capable of teaching kids. As we know, children usually lack the ability of self-controland they need to be inspired, which means strict rules and proper methods areindispensable in carrying out efficient tutoring. Primary teachers, although not so adept atacademic theories, are definitely experienced in stimulating children’s interest and steeringtheir thinking. Anyone without the training had better not to make an attempt, since if theyaccidentally distinguish the children’s passion in learning, the result could be irreversible. However, there is no doubt that university students have the ability to build a sound andcomfortable house for the ones in need. Therefore, they should do what they are good at.
To sum up, since club activities should aim at improving students’ ability instead of causingtroubles, it is better for students to design and construct a building for the underprivileged.
