Yaay it’s my first official post! Happy Holidays!!!
Isn’t everyday of our life special? I think every single day is a challenge and chance to make your life better. But today is more special, it’s DOUBLE 10TH! I’m Victoria and sophomore student at NDHU. I’m majoring in Counseling and Clinical Psychology along with my pretty girls Sofia and Alice. (They are not that pretty, just kidding but I’ll post some photos later *evil laughter*) My Chinese level is 2, meaning I can speak chinese like 7year old kid. Hurraay!, I was like a toddler when I first came. SO DON’T WORRY IF YOU ARE JUST A BEGINNER, WE’RE IN A SAME BOAT!
Dear alien student of NDHU, whoever you might be, I’m greeting you with my utmost respect and hope you will find this humble post helpful to you. So, first things first, let me introduce our beautiful Dong Hwa University and its history briefly.
National Dong Hwa University was founded in July 1994 with the planning stage started three years earlier (1991). We have 3 campuses today, including Shoufeng (1991), Meilun (1947) in Hualien and CheCheng, Ping Tung (2004 – 2005). Shoufeng campus is the largest, most lively and the most scenic one. No offense to other students, who are currently living in other campuses. He He. Our school is almost 23 years old and as you can see we are very young and energetic like wild dance! You will find campus life very interesting and extremely entertaining (of course, never forget about academics )
