It is better for students at university to live far away from home than to live at home with their parents

           Living environment has a great influence on students life,especially in academic achievements.Some of have an opinion that students at university level better not to stay in their home . I feel that this view is correct,and will explain reasons why in this essay.

           There are several reason to suggest that students to stay away from their home. First and foremost, there are a lot of opportunity for students to learn personal qualities such as punctuality,cleanliness,self care and so on.To be more precise, students organize their work without their parents' instructions,and at the same time they can find out time for their recreational activities. Another reason that since they interact with students from different family background,they learn how to maintain relationship with different kinds of people. They learn importance of co-operation in social life.  

            Apart from this,students can concentrated more on their studies. Even lazy students may persuade to do their home work when others are engaged with the studies.Combine studies are the another positive aspect of hostel life. At the time of examinations students gathered together to study their lessons.This is because they do not feel any boredom with their study and they can also clarify their doubts instantly with their companions.So,when students stay together they can improve their academic skills                                                                                                                                                  However , some would argue that hostel life offer an uncontrolled environment for students where they can do whatever they want.So there may be a greater chances to do some mischevious activities. If students stay in their home, they under the strict supervision of their parents. In addition,some students start to do smoking and drink alcohol witrh their hostel life.But one should not ignore the fact that there are some responsible authorities ii well established institutions to make control over the students.

            To conclude, students life at university level is very important because it is the time to refine the personality for an adult of tomarrow. Though there are some problems in hostel life,I believe that if there is an authority to make appropriate control over the students,many of these problem can be solved
