Students can benefit from student organizations and club activities as much as their academic studies.
Since the government spares no efforts to promote “quality education” that zeros in on students' all-around development, students nowadays no longer remain academic-centered or exam-oriented. Instead, they are exposed to various student organizations and club activities. This transformation divides onlookers into two basic camps with opposite views: some people are in favor of the previous system while others support the recent change. Personally, I am a big fan of “quality education,” and I am totally in agreement with students' participation in extra-curricular activities. My reasons are as follows.
开头思路：“背景引入+争议引出话题+个人观点”，可谓“开头神器”。里面的一个词zeros in on，中文意思是“全神贯注于某问题或主题”， 这个词绝对让那些什么pay attention to，focus on顿时“六宫粉黛无颜色”了;
Firstly, students taking part in organizations or club activities can develop non-academic capabilities such as leadership, communication or execution, which are crucial for the future. It is because no matter what kind of student organisation or club it is, the goal is always to achieve something with the cooperation of all members. During the process, there must be leaders who organize activities, give orders, or assign workload and members who should communicate with each other timely to ensure that everything goes smoothly. I remember that I used to be the leader of an English speaking society in college, and I successfully organized several large-scale speaking contests. The capability acquired through those activities laid a foundation for my future work.
In addition, student organizations and clubs are the places where we can make great friends, which spices up the tedious campus life. A certain type of student organization or club is like a group or circle that appeals to people with similar hobbies or interests, and that is the reason why one can find his or her congenial friends in the club more often than not. For example, people who love taking photos will join the photography club, and movie-goers are always taking part in movie salons and exchanging mutual ideas and thoughts on the same movie. Undoubtedly, being together with people having the shared aspirations and enthusiasm is the source of happiness.
首先spice up，强调“给生活增添趣味”;可以看看下面的造句：Open-air dance with friends spices up the old lady’s life. 广场舞让大妈的生活多姿多彩;第二个congenial,绝对是写作里高频出现的，就是：“志同道合”; 可以说“I am a movie-goer”,表示经常去看电影的人，我们还可以得到park-goer, concert-goer这样的词汇。
Admittedly, academic study is of vital importance to every student, for it provides the basic and systematic knowledge to which we cannot be blind. However, to emphasize the importance of academic study does not mean that student organization and club activities are dispensable. One who devotes himself to academic study without paying any attention to extra-curricular activities stands a fair chance to become a nerd with high IQ but low EQ, which is not an ideal case.
“To do sth does not mean that sth is dispensable”这个句型非常好的用来表达“在肯定某事物的同时，不能忽略其他得方面”;
In a nutshell, I regard student organization and club activity as important as academic study. As an old saying goes, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” if you do not want to be dull, then go to join an organization or a club immediately, because you will harvest unexpected treasures there.
最后，用谚语升华主题;学习这个谚语：all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy;只工作，不玩耍，聪明的孩子也变傻!所以，以后在强调活动，兴趣，娱乐，锻炼等话题时，这个谚语就可以闪亮登场了。
