Cutting the Apron Strings
There is substantial evidence that students going off to college have changed over the years. For one thing, studies show that they are emotionally closer to their parents and their parents to them. One thing that means is that they depend on each other more for happiness. It puts a burden on children for parents to use their children asvehiclesfor their own happiness — although today's young people seem complicit in this arrangement, perhaps because they've known no other way — even if it creates anxiety in the children. That's one reason parents like to be involved in their children's college experiences, and colleges have had to devise novel ways of getting parents off campus when they transport their kids to school.
There's also evidence that students today seem to be choosing schools with reference to proximity to home. The closer a student is to home, the easier it is to bring the laundry home and to land in your old bed with tea and sympathy when you have the sniffles. And the easier it is for parents to visit you at university whenever the mood strikes. The amount of visiting parents do is far more than in generations past.
But in a real sense, students don't really leave their parents behind. Their parents go to college right along with them — in their front pockets. That is, the parents are a speed dial away by cellphone. And the evidence is clear that students call parents and parents call students at an alarmingly frequent rate. This, of course, significantly reduces independence. A student doesn't get the chance to solve minor problems on his own — he just calls Mom or Dad. A student has initial problems getting along with a roommate? A roommate doesn't do laundry as often as the other roommate wishes (I'm talking about actual incidents, not hypothetical ones? A student gets a C on her first paper? Instead of absorbing the negative information and figuring out how to resolve the problem or how to do better, the call gets made to home, where Mom or Dad solves the problem, often by calling the school administration. This kind of behavior is, sadly, commonplace today and is a mark of the lack of coping skills among students because all the lumps and bumps have been taken out of life for them until now.
In addition to being tethered to parents, incoming freshmen are now very heavily connected (by cellphone) to classmates from high school, who are presumably at other colleges. So there isn't the great impetus to mix and venture forth to meet new people, to get out of one's comfort zone, to get drawn into new experiences, that has traditionally marked the beginning of freshman year. The laws of physics still apply, and it is difficult to be meeting new people and seeking novel experiences while you are talking to your old pals.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word or phrase for each of the blanks.
One of the most famous concert halls in America is the Carnegie Hall in New York. Initially, it was called simply the 'Music Hall', but three years after its opening it was renamed in honour of Andrew Carnegie, the man who had provided much of the finance for its building.
The Hall officially opened on May 5, 1891. Since then the Hall has played host to the giants of classical music, as well as those of jazz, pop, folk and rock music, and has also been used for political rallies, religious services and lectures.
One of the most dramatic lectures given in the Hall took place during its first year. This began simply as a talk accompanied by slides of paintings of sunsets and landscapes, which was what the audience had been expecting. However, as the lecture progressed, the effects became more dramatic, with thunder, rolling clouds and steam billowing over the audience's head while mechanical volcanoes exploded on stage – all to the amazement and delight of the audience.
In 1927 the violinist Yehudi Menuhin made his appearance at the Carnegie Hall for the first time – he was aged ten. In the afternoon before the performance, he was wandering around the Hall instead of practising and was fascinated by an axe which he saw on the wall. The axe was for use in a fire but the boy, not knowing this, asked a security guard what it was for. The guard made an impression with his reply: “That's for chopping the heads off soloists who don't play well enough. Quite a few have already been chopped off.” Yehudi went rushing back to practise.
On one occasion another famous violinist and a pianist were giving a performance together when the violinist got lost in the music. He anxiously looked to the pianist for help and whispered “Where are we?”. He received the less than helpful reply “In the Carnegie Hall”.
Rock and roll made its first appearance at the Carnegie Hall in 1955 with Bill Haley and his Comets. In 1964 the British invasion arrived when the Beatles played their first concert here. On the day of the concert, cars came to a halt all over the city and the crowds surrounding the building were enormous. Fortunately, in all the chaos nobody was seriously injured and the Hall escaped with only minor damage.
In the 1950s the building was threatened with demolition but a vigorous campaign to save it was led by the conductor, Isaac Stern. In 1960 the Hall was purchased by the City of New York and a few years later it was named a national landmark. Over the years the most famous musicians, singers and entertainers in the world have appeared there – no doubt they will continue to do so for many years to come.

In the future, students may have the choice of studying at home by using technology such as computers or television, or of studying at traditional school. Which would you prefer?
Technology is so increasingly advanced that going to school may be unnecessary for future education. However, traditional schools still offer more indispensable benefits that outweigh technology. First and foremost, direct guide from lecturers can make learning more easily and seriously. Teachers’ voice, eye contact and varied teaching methods make the lesson more interesting to listen to. Students can also satisfied by chances of exchanging more information and receiving greater care from teachers. Besides, with teachers’ assignment and homework, more pressure is placed on study. Another advantage to mention is the development of related skills when going to school. Schools are mini societies that promote communication skill as well as relationship among students through daily school- preparation and conversation. Last but not least, studying at traditional school is much healthier. Instead of sitting at home for hours to learn, learners have to travel and play at break. Their eyes will be less affected while their body are more energetic. In sum, traditional schools provide better study environment than technological study at home.
