An online survey by China Youth Daily showed that nearly 80 percent of respondents believe that the mission of universities is not to make money, and suggest that Chinese universities put more resources into improving their educational infrastructure.

According to the survey, 80 percent of over 1,700 respondents said that it is hard to find an empty seat in self-study rooms on campus during the exam season.

Nearly 87 percent had unpleasant experience of failing to find an empty seat to prepare for exams during their college years.

Over 25 percent of respondents believe that Chinese universities and colleges have sufficient education infrastructure resources, including self-study rooms and libraries. Nearly 36 percent find the infrastructure resources “acceptable,” and over 25 percent consider them “insufficient.”
