For many years in the United States, most undergraduate students were 18 to 22 years old. They attended college
full-time, lived in a dormitory on campus, and expected many “extras” from their colleges, not just classes. But things
began to change in the 1970s and are very different now. Today, these “traditional” students are less than one-quarter of
all college students. These days the nontraditional students are the majority; they are different from traditional
undergraduates in several ways. They are older. Many attend college part-time because they have families and jobs. Most
live off campus, not in dorms. These nontraditional students don’t want the extras that colleges usually offer. They aren’t
interested in the sports, entertainment, religious groups, and museums that are part of most US colleges. They want
mainly good-quality classes, day or night, at a low cost. They also hope for easy parking, access to information
technology, and polite service. Both time and money are important to them.
Psychological tests reflect different learning styles in this new student population, too. Each person has a certain
learning style, and about 60 percent of the new students these days prefer the sensing style. This means that they are very
practical. They prefer a practice-to-theory method of learning, which is experience first and ideas after that. They often
have difficulty with reading and writing and are unsure of themselves. Most of these students are attending college
because they want to have a good job and make a lot of money. 【題組】39 What is the best title for this passage?
(A) The Rise and Fall of Universities in the US (B) Changes in Campus Life

Physical contact is an important factor in an infant’s overall development. Infants usually satisfy this very basic need
in the course of an ordinary day spent with their parents. The meaningful 47 between the parents and the infants
includes feeding, kissing, bathing, and so forth. 48 , if a baby is neglected or even mistreated by being deprived of a
touch, his or her development will suffer on all levels—physical, intellectual, and emotional. Some children have
49 been known to die from this lack of tactile stimulation; many doctors think that many unexplained “crib deaths” are
directly related to lack of touch and its various consequences. Children given up for adoption at a tender age and placed in
50 run orphanages, children brought up by unaffectionate parents, and children whose parents touch them only to beat
them—all these types of children run the risk of never reaching their potential as fully developed adults.
