  According to a survey, which was based on theresponses of over 188,000 students, today’straditional-agecollege freshmen are ”morematerialistic and less altruistic (利他主义的)” than atany time in the 17 years of the poll.

  Not surprising in these hard times, the student’smajor objective “is to be financially well off. Lessimportant than ever is developing a meaningful philosophy of life.” It follows then that todaythe most popular course is not literature or history but accounting.

  Interest in teaching, social service and the“altruistic”fields is at a low. On the other hand, enrollment in business programs, engineering and computer science is way up.

  That’s no surprise either. A friend of mine (a sales representative for a chemical company) was making twice the salary of her college instructors her first year on the job-even before shecompleted her two-yearassociate degree.

  While it’s true that we all need a career, it is equally true that our civilization has accumulatedan incredible amount of knowledge in fields far removed from our own and that we are betterfor our understanding of these other contributions m be they scientific or artistic. It is equallytrue that, in studying thediverse wisdom of others, we learn how to think. More important, perhaps, education teaches us to see the connections between things, as well as to see beyondour immediate needs.

  Weekly we read of unions who went on strike for higher wages, only to drive their employerout of business.No company; no job. How shortsighted in the long run!

  But the most important argument for a broad education is that in studying the accumulatedwisdom of the ages, we improve our moral sense. I saw a cartoon recently which shows agroup of businessmen looking puzzled as they sit around a conference table; one of them istalking on the intercom (对讲机): “Miss Baxter,”he says, “could you please send in someone whocan distinguish right from wrong?”

  From the long-term point of view, that’s what education really ought to be about.

  1.[A]事实细节题。根据第1段可知,根据调査,当今处于传统年龄的大学一年级的学生在17年来的民意测验中是“最追求物质享受、最自私的”,这与A所述相一致。

  2.[B]事实细节题。根据第2段第1句指出现在大学生选择专业的目的是为了经济上的富裕,B中的financial goals对应文中的financial well off,故正确。

  3.[D]句意理解题。本句首选强调Career职业的重要性,之后强啁我们也必须理解其他领域的知识,所以这句目的是强调全面教育的重要性,故D正确。

  4.[B]事实细节题。根据第5段第2句:同样毋庸置疑的还有,学习他人的各种智慧时,我们也学会怎样去思考。句中how to think与B中的see things in…right perspective意思最为相反,故B正确。

  5.[D]事实细节题。根据文章的第5至6段可知,作者认为罢工要求加薪等一些追求眼前利益的行为是目光短浅的,故D正确。
