Listen to a conversation between a student and a counselor at the University Counseling Center.
Hi, thanks for seeing me in such short notice.
No problem.How can I help?
Well, I think I might have made a mistake coming to the school.
What makes you say that?
I'm a little overwhelmed by the size of this place.I come from a small town. There were only 75 of us in my high school graduating class.Everyone knew everyone. We all grew up together.
So it's a bit of a culture shock for you?Being one of 15,000 students on a big campus in an unfamiliar city?
That's an understatement.I just can't get comfortable in class or in the dorms. You know, socially.
Um... well, let's start with the academics.Tell me about you classes.
I'm taking mostly introductory courses and some are taught in these huge lecture halls.
And you are having trouble in keeping pace with the material?
No, in fact I got an A on my first economics paper. It's just that, it's so impersonal, I'm not used to it.
Are your classes impersonal?
No, it's just that, for example, in sociology yesterday, the professor asked a question, so I raised my hand, several of us raised our hands.And I kept my hand up because I did the reading and knew the answer.But the professor just answered his own question and continued with the lecture.
Well, in a big room it's possible he didn't notice you.Maybe he was starting to save time.In either case I wouldn't take it personally.
I suppose. But I just don't know how to, you know, distinguish myself.
Why not stop by his office during office hours?
That wouldn't seem right.You know, taking time from other students who need help?
Don't say that. That's what office hours are for.There is no reason you couldn't pop in to say hi and to make yourself known.If you are learning a lot in class, let the professor know.Wouldn't you appreciate positive feedback if you were a professor?
You are right. That's a good idea.
OK, er... let's turn to your social life.How's it going in the dorms?
I don't have much in common with my roommate or anyone else I've met so far. Everyone's into sports and I'm more artsy, you know, into music.I play the cello.
Hah, have you been playing long?
Since age ten. It's a big part of my life. At home I was the youngest member of our community orchestra.
You are not going to believe this. There is a string quartet on campus, all students.And it so happened that the cellist graduated last year.They've been searching high and low for a replacement, someone with experience.Would you be interested in auditioning?
Absolutely.I wanted to get my academic work settled before pursuing my music here. But I think this would be a good thing for me.I guess if I really want to fit in here I should find people who love music as much as I do.Thank you.

5. 目的题 答案：B 解析： 对应原文是： Teacher: Ah, Ok. Here is my idea. In regular elections, the vast majority of voters ignore referendum. They vote for their favorite candidates but avoid ballot questions. We believe it was because voters aren’t familiar with the questions or don’t understand them. But actively educating people on ballot questions right before they vote can improve referendum participation rates. Student: In that case, maybe we could have our straw poll website providing information on ballot questions, like how each proposal would affect students. Teacher: Exactly. And when write your paper, you could compare the students’ referendum voting rate to the general publics. And include you own analysis of the results. 这里教授和学生讨论了选民在投票过程中的行为，可以看出教授在说完选民如果被积极教育，可以增加他们公投的投票率后，把话题引到了学生的论文可以把这个民意测验包含进去上。所以教授是在为学生的论文提供思路和主题，选项B符合题意。 选项A的意思是为了鼓励学生在当地选举中投票，选项C的意思是为了表达教授对于投票行为可以改变的怀疑，选项D的意思是让学生知道教授最近研究的项目。都不符合原文。选择B。
此题可以定位在： Absolutely. I wanted to get my academic work settled before pursuing my music here. But I think this would be a good thing for me. I guess if I really want to fit in here I should find people who love music as much as I do. ，这一句话很关键，女孩说 find people who love music （as much as I do）恰好与It would be a way to meet students （with similar interests）. 相互呼应
