My sister recommended me before, and then she told me that Huaqiao University here is very good in art, so I chose to come back to study in China.
The classmates got along well before, and if you have any confusion, they will be very active and enthusiastic to lend a helping hand to help you.
The hope is that in the process of learning, I can improve myself, and then work hard to fulfill my dream at the same time.

[Explanation] Wang Bojun, an overseas Chinese student in Fiji who has participated in the "Orientation" for several consecutive years, said that because of the epidemic, the school's management is stricter.

It is to let everyone adapt as soon as possible, that is, we first do it to show everyone how we do it, and then the new students may understand our behavior, and then they will follow us.
In this situation, we have to do not only for our own personal safety, but also for the personal safety of others around us.
