love and learning
towards love and lea rning , college teachers and students hold controversial views .
the majority of college teachers , especially old teachers , a rgue that students s hould give up love and concent rate on learning . they say that campu s love is time- and-energy-consuming and t ea rs students away f rom their main task . i f a student ever falls in love, he/ she will undoubtedly neglect his/ her studies and gradually lag behind his/ her classmates . a few teachers , therefor e, suggest that the univer sity authorities restore the tr aditional r egulation again st love during students’ school yea rs .
on the cont ra ry , students hold that it is natural for young people to fall in love on the campus because they meet every day and their everyday meeting produces romantic passion towards each other . t hey in sist that the campus is not the ga rden of eden and love is not the forbidden tree . they take for example some of their f riends who, falling in love , ar e studying harder and have made greater progress to please their boy/ girl friends .
in my opinion , both views a re lop-sided . if a student does not give himself/ herself away in love but takes it as a drive , love produces positive effect . but if he/ she indulges himself/ herself too deeply in love, then he/ she will be a devoted lover but a f rustr ated learner .
