But there are negative values too, so about 20% students show no enthusiasm to sports at all. 3) Sports consumption, directly influenced by family budget, is accepted by students but it is lower than national level. And the consumption mainly takes the form of sports commodities with little amount of information consumption. 4) The major leisure activities among students are reading, surfing the internet, sports, school or social practice activities. Afternoon to night is considered ideal time for doing sports and students like doing sports for free on campus.
