Many universities have their own art museums, with collections of paintings and sculptures by well-known artists. I think our university should create a similar museum on our own campus. Such a museum would give our students an opportunity to learn to appreciate high-quality fine art. It would be a great way for us to see artworks that we might not have access to other wise. In order to pay for the museum, the university could write letters to alumni asking them to donate money to help build the museum. I'm sure many former students love art and would be glad to donate money to help the university build a museum here. Sincerely, Diane Miller
<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Did you see this letter?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. It's a nice idea, but it'll never happen.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Why do you say that?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, first of all, you can get on a bus right here on campus, and in half an hour you're downtown at the county art museum.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> That's true.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> And if you show your student ID card, it only costs like two bucks to get in.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. In fact, on Mondays, students get in for free.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Right. And you can see some of the greatest art in the world there.
For example, you know Rembrandt, the famous Dutch painter?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, right now they're showing something like twenty of his paintings.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Wow.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah. [changing topics]And you know,
it's true, we do have a lot of very generous alumni.
But we're already asking them for help building a new student center and a new library.
And those are both very expensive projects.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, that's right.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> So I don't think we can expect them to donate much money for anything else anytime soon. Especially for something we don't really need.
