USST Welcomes Freshmen to the School Campus
On a bright sunny day of Sep 10th, USSTers were thrilled to welcome more than 4000 incoming freshmen to the USST and to start their first day at this campus.
Volunteers composed of faculty and students, who were wearing USST T-shirts, assembled and set off at 7 a.m. to meet and welcome undergraduates with their warmest greetings. They answered questions, gave advice, guided the way and offered help to new students. The Hujiang Campus was now filled with young laughers, excited chatters and collective vibe of cheers, embracing a new semester full of expectations. Under regular pandemic prevention and control, to safeguard and aid each student, USST has mobilized human resources and made various emergency plans ahead of the time to help each student peacefully enter into the campus and smoothly complete their registration. In the meanwhile, despite the fact that foreign vehicles were not allowed to be driven in and parked inside, school specially and warmly arranged for some temporary shuttles to carry and transport students’ heavy package to the dorm areas. In addition, some smart technologies added have also made it convenient for students to complete their admission procedure and get to scan USST landscape as quickly as possible.
For the majority of students, this is the first time that they have embarked on their independent days without parents’ company. Unlike previous years, freshmen have to do with their dorm affairs by themselves at the first day. In the coming days, they should learn about many new life skills and can get acquaint with a lot of friends all over the world.
They all begin to build a dream and keep exploring and striving for it in hopes of fulfilling a complete four-year golden time. No matter where you are from, USST will be new home to you and stands together in enriching your academic journey and personal development in the following four years.
