The orientation offers students excellent opportunities to learn things they need to know when studying or exchanging at CCU. Vice President Chih-Cheng Wang was invited to give a short talk to the students. He said that Chinese Culture University was proud of having a great learning environment and excellent faculty and staff who are passionate about providing teaching and assistance to ensure students have a wonderful experience in Taiwan. Vice President Wang would like students to know more about the people and culture in Taiwan and later bring it back to their home countries. After graduation, they could even plan to stay in Taiwan, where they will find an ideal place to live.
Vice President Ben Chen introduced the Office of International and Mainland Affairs to the participants. He mentioned that the office has been promoting academic exchange between our school and partner schools by providing cultural exchange activities, free mandarin courses, and enthusiastic student mentors for international students.
