Demographic Distribution of PKUSSI Class 2016
In the afternoon at 4pm, summer school program students participated in the orientation held in Science Teaching Building, Room 207, as their “first class in Peking University”. During the course of one hour, students began to familiarize themselves with the life and studies in Peking University through introduction given by the charismatic moderator and obliging program assistants. The event ended in a relaxing, delightful note. After orientation, program assistants guided students in their groups through the school campus to help them find their bearings right away.

In the following month, outside of studying courses taught in both Chinese and English, students are also offered experience of Chinese culture with a series of activities, outings and sightseeings organized by PKUSSI. We sincerely hope that students will take something away from both their academic life and cultural exploration in Peking University.
