Some say college is wasted on the young．So many of us look back at our own college years and realize what we could have done differently to make the most of them．While we can't go back，we certainly can offer our sons and daughters our best advice to help them make the right choices in college．Hopefully，they will have fewer regrets than we do．Following are five guidelines parents can share with their college﹣bound kids to put the whole experience in perspective．
EDUCATION IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY
As soon as you arrive on campus，there will be competing interests．Feel free to check them out but always remember that you are there first and foremost for your education．Go to class prepared and on time．Be engaged during class．Make sure your professor knows you and realizes that you care．
There are many layers of responsibility．Do what you say you will do and，if you can't，own up to it early and communicate clearly．But being responsible isn't just about meeting your commitments； it is also about taking care of you，your body，and your friends．For example，more than 1800college students die annually from alcohol﹣related injuries．Look out for yourself and other people．Make moderate，sensible decisions so you aren't reeling from the consequences later．
TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY
Incredible opportunities will present themselves：studying abroad，interning at a unique place，trying new things．Don't let fear prevent you from taking advantage of them．There may never be so much time or as many resources devoted to your betterment again in your life．Say yes to opportunities that will help you grow．
FIND AND BE A MENTOR
Some of the best lessons available to us can come outside of the classroom in the form of a mentor．One of the most powerful growth opportunities is being a mentor．Early on，find someone on campus who you feel can help you grow and develop a relationship with him or her．Also find someone for you to mentor．You will reinforce and enrich your own learning experience by teaching someone else．
GET THE JOB DONE
It is natural to occasionally feel you want to quit，when it makes more sense to you to go find a full﹣time job．Resist that urge．As Jocelyn Negron﹣Rios，a mother of two，who is currently completing her degree，advises，"No matter how difficult it seems，keep at it because however insurmountable it feels now multiply that by 10，000and that is how it feels when you are in your thirties with a full﹣time job and a family and are trying to pursue a degree．"
46．According to the passage，the most important thing for college students is ．
A．taking part in different activities
B．working hard to get a degree
C．seizing every chance to try new things
D．improving themselves by learning from the others
47．Which of the following about college life is true？
A．Passing on what you've learned in college can help you enrich your learning experience．
B．Make sure that you are responsible for yourself rather than others．
C．Professors will not assess your performances in class but the grades you get in exams．
D．You can make full use of the opportunity whenever you want．
48．What can we infer from the words said by Jocelyn in the last paragraph？
A．Persistence is the key to success when you meet with difficulties in your learning process．
B．It is better if you gain more working experience before you finish your education．
C．As long as you work hard，you can gain a degree even when you are in your thirties．
D．Youth is the best time to learn since you have less burden．
49．What is the main purpose of the passage？
A．To give some rules for the college students．
B．To call on the students to make full use of college years．
C．To summarize some tips for parents to share with their children．
D．To analyze the benefits and difficulties of college life．
Derek Wayne has obtained a 30﹣year，fixed﹣rate home loan of 100，000with an annual interest rate of 7.5percent．Because the loan extends for such a lengthy period，the mortgage（抵押） company calculates a monthly payment that ensures it will get most of its interest back first．Thus in the beginning months，Wayne's principal payment﹣the amount he pays toward his actual loan﹣increases extremely slowly．
Principal Portion of Payment
Interest Portion of Payment
Let's analyze Wayne's early payments．Imagine that on December 15the Mauritanian Mortgage Corporation gives Wayne 100，000，and on January 15his initial payment is due．Throughout this first month，interest accumulates on the entire 100，000．On a yearly interest rate of 7.5%，Wayne's monthly rate is 0.625% or 7.5%divided by 12．Multiplying 100，000by 0.625% yields 625，the portion of Wayne's first monthly payment that is interest．So Wayne now owes 99，925.79 （ 100，625﹣699.21）．His February interest payment will be 0.625% of 99，925.79．
By the time Wayne makes his last few payments，his monthly interest payment has decreased considerably．His balance following his 359th payment is 694.87，and 0.625% of that is about 4.34，his final interest payment．What was the total amount of interest Wayne paid？Multiplying 360months by 699.21equals 251，715.60，and subtracting 100，000（the loan amount） leaves 151，715.60﹣over 1.5times what he actually borrowed!
46．This passage is mainly concerned with ．
B．the Mauritanian Mortgage Corporation
C．how interest payments on a loan change
D．calculating the number of payments Wayne made
47．The monthly interest rate on Wayne's loan was ．
A.7.5% B.6.5% C.0.625% D.625
48．We can conclude that Wayne's total monthly paymentwasalways ．
49．The table in the passage helps the readers see ．
A．Wayne's down payment before he took out the loan
B．Wayne's first and last payments
C．how much his interest payments increased
D．at what point the interest and principal payments were just about equal．

From a college designed specifically for high school students to one that doesn’t provide students with grades, here are some of the country’s most unique institutions.
●Berea College, Berea, Kentucky
The first interracial, co-educational college in the South, Berea specializes in attracting students who may be otherwise unable to afford a college education. Berea students come from families with an average household income of $ 30,000, which is why the school’s financial aid program is so important.
●Deep Springs College, Deep Springs, California
Deep Springs, formerly an all-male school, has one of the smallest student bodies in the country at 26. The college accepts only 10% of its applicants, and maintains its own cattle herd. Students enjoy the school’s isolated location — 45 miles away from the nearest established town. Electricity is produced mainly through solar power, and the college sometimes even sells electricity to Pacific Gas&Electric.
●The Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington
At Evergreen, students don’t receive traditional letter grades. Instead, professors issue narrative(叙述的) evaluations of students’ work at the end of each term. The curriculum is structured around the"Coordinated Studies Program", which focuses on providing students with a well-rounded education across a number of different areas. The college sits on 1,000 breathtaking acres, a portion of it on Puget Sound.
●Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts
Considered an"experimenting"college because of its constantly changing curriculum, Hampshire College doesn’t feature a traditional grading system. Instead, the school requires students to complete three different divisions, which feature different classes. Once the project is completed, it’s not given a grade, but a written evaluation, as other projects students complete throughout their time at Hampshire are.

DOGS DRIVE CAR
Auckland, New Zealand
After two months of learning, Monty, and Porter were able to drive an automobile around a racetrack. “We wanted to prove how smart rescue dogs are,” animal behaviorist Mark Vette says. Vette first used voice commands and treats to teach the dogs how to turn a steering wheel and how to change gear (换挡).
The dogs’ ride only accelerated up to 7.5 miles an hour, and trainers could stop the auto using a remote control.
Zoe the zebra’s markings are special. The animal has white and golden stripes. Zoe’s appearance resulted from a rare condition called amelanosis (黑素缺失症). Her body doesn’t make enough melanin, the substance in an animal’s skin and hair cells that produces color. “Only 25 other golden zebras are known to exist in the world,” says Ann Goody, who runs the wildlife refuge where Zoe lives. In the wild, life may be difficult for animals with amelanosis because predators (捕猎者) can easily spot them. But Zoe is protected at her refuge.
COCKATOO MAKES TOOLS
When Figaro the cockatoo spots food lying just out of reach from his cage, he builds a tiny wooden tool to sweep the tasty prize in his way.
The bird first revealed his talent when a stone he was playing with rolled out of his cage. The cockatoo couldn’t reach the stone. So he flew away and returned with a small branch, slipping it through the fence to slide the stone toward him.
Wondering if he would do it again, scientists placed a nut exactly where the stone had been. This time, Figaro pulled out a small piece of wood in his cage and dragged the nut toward him.

Are you looking for something to do? You might like to try one of these four experiences.
Do you fancy getting up close to some of the most terrifying animals on earth? Crocosaurus Cove, in Darwin (Australia) has the “Cage of Death”. It’s an enclosure that’s lowered into a pool. This gives you a 360 degree view of a crocodile as it’s being fed. The cable broke once and the cage sank to the bottom, but they’ve fixed it since then.
How about walking along the edge of a building several hundred meters up in the air? If that sounds like fun, head off to the CN Tower in Toronto (Ontario, Canada). Built in 1976, the tower is 553.33 meters tall.
The Edge walk consists of a 20-30 minute stroll along a 1.5 meter wide platform that runs around the tower’s restaurant roof. During the walk, you’re encouraged to lean forwards as you look over Toronto’s skyline (轮廓线).
Plastic ball rolling
Do you fancy rolling down a hill in a plastic ball?
Plastic ball rolling is popular all over the world, but the place to give it a go is in Rotorua (New Zealand). Brother David and Andrew Akers came up with the idea in 1994. A typical orb (球) is about 3 meters in diameter, with an inner orb size of about 2 meters. There’s no brake or steering mechanism, but the inner layer of the plastic ball helps absorb the shock.
Volcano bungee jumping
If you’re looking for the adventure of a lifetime, how about going bungee jumping off a helicopter into the crater of a live volcano? As part of the jumping, a helicopter ride takes you to the Villarreal volcano, one of the most active in Chile. Once you’re at the drop zone, you leap off the helicopter and fall into the volcano. Finally, you enjoy the ride back to the airport flying at 130kph.
