My name is Huinan Zeng and I’m a current Chinese student at the University of Sheffield. I’m an International Office Ambassador for China and you can see my profile on our web pages.
|Students at Orientation Week|
Taking part in the activities in Orientation week is the best way to start your university life here in Sheffield. Last year I was a fresher, and during that week I felt warmly welcomed by the University and I met lots of brilliant people. I hoped that I could have a chance to pass on the kindness and joy I received, so this year I worked as an Orientation Assistant myself.
I saw so many students making new friends and enjoying themselves just like I did. The welcome talks on offer every day give students an overview of the programme for the week. There are a lot of” icebreakers” which are fun activities and games to help students can meet new friends. Participating in guided tours and walks are a good way to explore the University and the city – plus you will not get lost anymore!
There are also lots of special activities on offer throughout the week. We had a welcome BBQ, an afternoon tea, had a “Taste of Britain”, etc. As their name suggests, they are all about food! :-) For those who love partying and socializing, I’d recommend that you don’t miss our big global intro party and karaoke! Last but not least, there will be a fancy welcome reception at the end of the week. Stop hesitating and join us now!
