Money First or Knowledge First？
Everyone knows the importance of money and knowledge．Everyone must have money to fulfill their necessities and knowledge to make them respectful and help them gain money． But which one should be put in the first place in the particular college time? Some college students set up their own business, some speculate inthe stock market, and some start their own studios．
Undoubtedly, those students will not only earn enough money to fend for themselves, but also become fledged in the real world．However, I think college students should always concentrate on acquiring knowledge instead of seeking fortune in the particular state of our lives．
Firstly, though knowledge can help you gain money, money can not buy you knowledge． For the majority of us, college time is a golden time for acquiring knowledge． Once we miss the golden time, we will not be compensated in the future．In this particular episode of our lives, we receive allowance from our parents, are not disturbed by the chores of housework, and are assisted by experienced teachers and classmates．And I can not imagine which stage of our lives is more favorable than this episode．The golden time for studies can be best illustrated by a conversation with an elder friend． He established a training school years ago and did make a fortune． But he always takes me into confidence that he wants to tear himself from thebusiness and further studies in graduate school．He also admonishes me that I should work harder and harder, otherwise I will regret one day．
Secondly, while college students can make some money in college time, they can not absorb themselves in their business wholeheartedly, which means that they are less likely to succeed in the corporate world than those who need not worry about studies．According to college curricula, students have to finish some compulsory courses and selective courses．They have to pass all required courses before getting diplomas． For some students from particular departments, they have to make more efforts than students pursuing other degrees．Accordingly, if college students run business, they will not only bear pressures imposed by studies,but also face the fierce competition in the market． Besides, college students are unfledged in comparisonwith other seasoned businessmen．Is it wise to take the risk of running business in college?
In sum, college years is the golden period for studies in one’s life, and no one can afford to miss it． While college students have to make efforts to earn credits, and turn out to be unfledged, they had betterconcentrate on studies．
