On September 8, 2022, new international students came to Zhejiang University for registration, starting a new chapter in their lives.
In the morning, international student volunteers and a shuttle bus have prepared at the east gate, waiting for new students. When new students arrived, staff measured their body temperature, sanitized the luggage and checked the ZJU passcode. After completing these epidemic prevention procedures, new students took the shuttle bus to the International College.
The atmosphere at the International College was really warm, and the staff were enthusiastic to help. With clear guidance, students registered, paid tuition fees, take campus cards, and checked in for dormitory at one time. As the Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching, the International College distributed ZJU mooncakes to each new student, sending good wishes to them. During the registration, freshmen felt the warmth from the college and they were looking forward to the upcoming life in Zhejiang University.
