Many colleges are reportedly exploiting their most "beautiful" female students as an advertisement to attract students to enroll in their institutions.

A college is an integral part of society; it is not different from other educational institutions. There's nothing wrong in launching enrollment campaigns on the Internet. But is it necessary to turn college admission into an entertainment show? Wouldn't that undermine a college's more important characteristics such as teaching quality, research facilities and campus culture?

Yale University released a 16-minute enrollment promotion film in 2012 to introduce Yale's colorful campus life. All those who took part in the promotion film were Yale students, teachers and non-teaching staff, and the film was appreciated by one and all. A promotion film of Peking University about its history and spirit in the same year, too, won public praise. The fact is that people care more about a college per se rather than the "beautiful" students who study there.

Promotion films should showcase the reality not vanity of a college. It's time colleges understood the role and function they should play in society and the development of the country's youths, instead of trying to sensationalize their non-essential traits to attract students.

Many Chinese colleges use beauty contests as cover-up for low quality education.

The college system is more of a business here in the States. The cost of an education has increased more than the inflation rates for several decades. I'm sure these girls are being compensated for luring all those unfortunates who cannot afford the student loan costs after they graduate.
