This is the first year for Northwest A&F University to accept overseas students.For comprehending their life and their opinion on our university , journalists from the editorial department of the College of Life Science interviewed the student who is named Assem from Egypt.
J: Welcome to China!
A: Thank you!
J:As I know,you have studied in two western developed countries,why do you select China which is a developing country to study finally?
A:Actually,I think I'm very lucky to obtain the chance to live and study in China. In Eygpt,we believe that China is going to achieve more and more progress,we expect that one day China will be the superior economic power in the world. As everyone knows,Eygpt is a developing country just like China. We're sure that China can impart plenty of piecious experience on developing to us,which the western developed countries can't. For this reason,my country has started to send Eygptian students here, you may have noticed the increasing number of the Eygptian students in Chian every year.
On the other hand,in China you will develop a good habit and custom like respecting work,arranging the time ,dealing with the social relations,accepting to respect the others,etc.
J:I’m sure China won’t never let you down.Now I am eager for knowing the impression Northwest A&F University has left on you.
A:Before coming to China, in all honesty, I didn't expect much. After arriving at Northwest A&F University ,I found that the situation was much better than expected. For example, althought it's the first year for Northwest A&F University to accept overseas students, but they succeeded to manage everything to the extent so that you may imagine that they have plentiful experience with this kind of education. The international education office members are trying to do their best to help us and to provide a suitable environment for our study.Another very fabulous event for me is that senven nights ago an old man with a young man came to my room, the old man was asking and the young man was translating cearfully. They asked me about all things:if I feel accustomed here, if I have any problems, if the condition is suitable,etc.Then they visited all the other rooms in our building and asked the others the same questions. Just a minute later, someone told me that this man was the president of this university and he came by himself to make sure that everything has been well done. And when he left the building I found that he was walking, not using a car. So, I appreciated the sipirit that the president dealt with eveything himself and his simplity
And I must add, I think it's a good university because of its well educated staff members, the available facilities and resources for learning,the perfect administration system. What's more, the openness to the outside world universities.
J: I’m glad to share the wonderful impression with you. And I suppose you’ll lead a happy life here.Could you tell me your paln in China?
A:I have said that I came here to learn the developing experience of China just now. So,I plan to make full use of my time as possible as I can . My first goal is to learn as I can do in my major “international economics”,then to be able to get perfect lessons and experience gradually so that I can apply the knowledge to support the economic development in Eygpt.
I'm trying to understand the Chinese society, the culture and customs.The main reason that encouraged me to study in Northwest A&F University is that it is not located in a modern city like Beijing or Shanghai. Because I believe if you want to learn the culture of a society you have to stay in the suburbs or the countryside.
Finally,as I knew that China has a very long history like my country so I plan to visit the historical and the touristic places . Also China is rich of its natural scenery so I paln to travel around China to know more and more about China.
J:May you a wonderful life in China!
A:Thank you for your kind wish !
