After reading the last page of The Postech Times, I could take a trip to China sitting in my room. This article was about their training camp to Shanghai, China. The article shows cultures, history, and college system of other universities of different culture. Reading those three articles, I could not only understand and compare other universities with POSTECH, but also have a chance to think about the precious history of Korea.
On that page, the first article was about foreign students’ convenience in campus. Since I’ve never been to foreign universities before, it aroused my curiosity what it is like in other countries. As seen in the articles, Fudan University seems to have less care about foreign students’ convenience. They had less English courses, and few professors used English to deliver the class materials. Compared to our university, in which almost all of announcements are in both Korean and English, and all the courses with at least one foreign student are required to be offered in English, the globalization of Fudan University seems relatively weaker. However, the student council actively helped the foreign students to solve the potential problems caused by this. I think the article would be better if it had more contents and details.
When I first saw the picture of the second article on this page, it reminded me of my history class in high school. Although it was a very serious and crucial part of Korean history, I really had no chance before to remind and think about those independence fighters, who sacrificed themselves for the independence of Korea. This article reminded me of what they did and to further understand the history with a detailed explanation. It explains why Shanghai was chosen as the place for the Korean Independence Army Government from the geographical, political, and diplomatic point of views.
The last article was about Shanghai as the economic identity of China. From the foundation of People’s Republic of China, which had a socialism society, to one of the biggest economic powers of nowadays, China has changed its economic system, but not totally into capitalism. The article explained China’s peculiar system called Market Socialism. Before reading this article, I did not know how market socialism was formed in China. However, now I learned that it was started by Deng Xiaoping in the purpose of making people’s livelihood richer.
Overall, all three articles explained the various aspects of China’s culture, and it would be great fun to everyone regardless of their experience in China before. Also, reading this article draw my attention to last issue, which has articles about Hong Kong, another city they visited.
