“When I arrived on campus today, I felt an atmosphere of newness and vitality!” said Gu Wenyue, a new student from Guangxi pursuing a master’s in Public Administration in Hospital Management.
“I can’t wait to dig into my studies and research, start communicating with my advisor, and choose my research direction,” said Jia Tianding, Functional Materials & Devices major from Liaoning.
