Ever since the announcement of the NYU "Go Local" policies, many students from both NYU Shanghai and other NYU campuses have expressed their concerns over academic quality, campus resources, and promoting integration between portal students and visiting students. This week, NYU Shanghai Dean of Students David Pe responded to the questions over "Go Local" Policies.
自纽约大学“Go Local”政策公布以来，不少上海纽约大学与纽约大学其他校区的同学们都表达了对于教学质量，学校资源和促进本校与来访同学融合等方面的疑问。本周，上纽大学生事务部主任David Pe(彭汉智)回答了同学们对于“Go Local”政策提出的问题。
On the night of July 15th (CST), NYU Shanghai's Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Lehman sent out an email to the entire student body, saying that the university "will be welcoming approximately 3000 other NYU undergraduate and graduate students who are currently in China to study with us on a temporary campus elsewhere in Shanghai." The announcement has aroused heated discussions among the students. OCA interviewed several Chinese students about their opinions on the announcement.
Following the celebration of Pride Month 2020, the author, intrigued by the discussion aroused on Chinese social platforms following J.K. Rowling’s controversial speech concerning transgender people, tries to understand trans visibility and transphobia in China and beyond. The article is initially intended for Chinese readers and later translated into English, thus non-Chinese readers may find some examples and situations that feel alien or don’t apply to their society.
When coronavirus is spreading to the world, our life at home hasn’t been compromised. We are using warm daily stories as a way to respond to the outbreak and enrich our lives by our creativity and restless passion. To find out what students have gained through these days, we interviewed some Chinese students about their vigorous lives. We hope when the day of reunion at Centre Avenue 1555, we will find ourselves a better person due to these valuable moments and countless warmth.
