“Although spoken English doesn’t obey the rules of spoken language, a person who doesn’t follow the rules thoroughly is at a great disadvantage” – Marilyn vos Savant
The university’s effort to offer quality education is a priority, but getting the students to embody its principles is another, a timely issue relevant to such is the issue about discipline and obedience, as these two subtle and powerful words could be present in any kind of situation anyone could be in.
As an example, our very own library, I feel bothered when there are students that are being negligent and disobedient of the rules. The library’s rules are the law, and laws should be followed at all times. Aside from not following the house rules, there are those who really do not know where to draw the line, they even sleep, play video games, be agitated and worst of all, be loud. Yes, let’s say that if you obey all the rules you miss all the fun, but then again you must first consider the place and it’s limitation for “fun”.
Most libraries are based at schools, universities and other educational institutions, but let’s be frank here, even libraries that aren’t based on the aforementioned institutions still embody the same set of rules, isn’t it a little foolish to still be negligent even though we are being bombarded of the said rules? Or are we already that ignorant to the point where disobedience has been a common thing amongst us?
I guess what I’m trying to emphasize here is that students should be more sensitive about such matters, after all, you are the university’s brand managers, every act you initiate whether inside or outside the school would only reflect the university’s values and principles.
I strongly believe that no such institution would like to be given halo from such illicit acts…
On the other hand, kudos to our library administrators for excellently doing their job though sometimes the student’s behaviour gets out of hand.
Anyway, let me know what you think, I purposely wrote this article to elicit your opinions, stand and take on the said matter.
