Director Zhang showed the students SUSTech's 3D campus construction model, introduced the university's innovative characteristics in detail, and took them to the campus' most popular places: the Lynn Library, the Materials Characterization and Preparation Building, the Cryo-Electron Microscopy Innovation and Research Center (Cryo-EM Center) and Zhiren Residential College.
The students were amazed by the beauty of the campus and commented on SUSTech's high-end research equipment and leading research team when visiting the Cryo-EM Center. They highly praised the innovative residential college system and volunteer culture, especially after hearing the introduction by Director Zhang, Zhixin Residential College student Zhang Hongxu, and Student Emergency Rescue Team's Deputy Leader Li Daifeng. The students also learned about the story of economic reform in Shenzhen, which later spread across the entire Chinese mainland.
Next, Hong Kong Open University Sophomore Cheng Man shared her thoughts on SUSTech and Shenzhen: "Shenzhen is an inclusive immigrant city that encourages innovation, and I am deeply moved and motivated by Shenzhen-er's courage and venture spirit. SUSTech is a beautiful campus with a group of competitive students, which truly impress me."
