On February 25, 2018, the opening ceremony of the spring semester 2018 was held for international students by the College of International Education on Guanghua Campus at SWUFE. The entire faculty of the college, a police officer of the Chengdu Exit and Entry Administration Division, and students of the 2018 spring semester attended the ceremony.
Following the welcome address, the Dean of the College of International Education, Prof. Liang Ting, sent her best regards and genuine greetings to the new international students. Afterwards, the new students attended a trivial quiz and watched videos about Chengdu and SWUFE, which helped getting everyone more acquainted with SWUFE and the city, and it was also a motivating environment to help building relationships with new people.
During the ceremony, a police officer gave a short & informative lecture about China's relevant laws and regulations as well as matters related while studying in China. In order to help fit-in with the life here at SWUFE and in Chengdu, Ms. Li Yi also introduced basic facts about the university and the CIE, our offices’ functions as well as useful tips. Meanwhile, Mr. Zhang Longjian presented an overview of the Chinese language courses available, including the time of the courses, the courses' outline, and different lectures of this semester.
Through this opening ceremony, the students have had a clearer and brighter image of their future life in China. Together with Chengdu's internationalization acceleration, there has also been a major boost of the population of international students at SWUFE. While the number of students are growing, we are sparing no efforts to provide better services and a better environment for every one of our students.
