The university is planning to make two changes to the summer course. The first change is to shorten the course from 8 weeks to 4 weeks. The second one is to reduce on-campus housing fee for students. In the lecture, the man thinks it's a great idea. He mentions in his first reason that a lot of students didn't want to take the course because they wanted to spend time with their family or go traveling. Now that the course is shorter they can enjoy their vacation while not missing out on the course. The man took the summer course and he had a whole week before the course started to enjoy his vacation. As for the second reason, he points out that this way students get to save some money which is definitely a good thing for those with a limited budget.
The university is planning to open the university gym to people off-campus due to two reasons. The first reason is that the university can charge them a monthly fee and use the money to upgrade the gym facility. And the second reason is that it won't affect the students' life that much. In the conversation, the woman agrees with the plan. Her first reason is that it'd necessary now for the university to upgrade the facilities because some of them are really old, this way the university doesn't have to charge the students or the faculty. As for the second reason, she mentions that it's a pretty small town anyway, so not a lot of people will use the gym and it won't make too big a difference for students."
The university is planning to have a contest among dorms. They’re going to monitor the power use of dorms and the dorm that uses the least amount of electricity wins. The woman agrees with the plan. In the first reason, she thinks this can remind all students of saving power and living an eco-friendly life, like turning off the lights when leaving the room. As for the second reason, the woman points out that even if not everyone will take this contest seriously, most of people will still enjoy it, and with the award, they can go for a delicious meal. So this whole plan will work and encourage people to save energy.
The university is planning to require all students to take writing classes in the writing center due to two reasons. First of all. there are tutors there to help students with their writing. And the second reason is because this way. students get to spend more time on writing. In the conversation. the man disagrees with the plan. In the first reason. he mentions that students can get plenty feedback from their professors. and the professors know their students best. there's no need to go to the writing center to search for help. As for the second reason. the man points out that it's actually a waste of time because students need to spend a lot of time going to the writing center and it's time they should have spent on studying.
The student suggests that the university should create a special website for student musicians due to two reasons. The first reason is that it will be easier to get in touch with people who share the same interests with them. The second reason is that it will be a convenient way to post information about concerts and events. In the conversation, the woman agrees with the suggestion. In the first reason, she mentions that she started a band with some of her friends and they always practice together, but they’re missing a good drummer in the band. If there was a website like this, it would be much easier for them to find a drummer for their band. As for the second reason, the woman points out that there are few people there when she goes to campus concerts and stuff because people don’t know about these events, this website could help people stay updated about music-related events on campus.
