University Life

Considering that I am now working/living at Sustech (Southern University of Science and Technology) here in Shenzhen, I thought yall might want to know a little more about university life and the student body here.

Main gate of my university

The university is very modern and big. It has a lot of greenery and all there are many different clubs and activities for the students and the teachers. All the vehicles around campus are electric so its nice to feel like there is less pollution around. We even have our very own robot! The technology really is amazing here in China.

me greeting our campus robot literally minutes after we first arrived to the campus on our first day!

Now I will show you some general photos of the campus so you can get an idea of what it looks like here. 

There is also a medical center, sports center, restaurants to eat at, stores, shops etc. We even have a kindergarden and nursing home here! It is like a small town here on this campus. If you chose to, you could stay here and never even leave the campus and have everything that you need. When we get packages delivered, they send a text message to our cell phones and we go to these automated lock boxes, punch in the code and bam! we have our packages. Easy peasy. 

As far as my students go, they are all very good students. Quiet and reserved, typical Asian students. I am used to a loud dynamic interactive classroom with constant speaking and noise so it was an adjustment at first for me coming here and realizing that getting them to speak out was like pulling teeth! But, as long as you approach it the right way ( a lot of group and pair work!) then you can get them talking. In one of my classes we even have a class mascot.

 Their worldview is completely opposite from our maps
China is truly massive! I think there are 34 providences

Sorry for my finger in the photo haha. You can buy books out of a vending machine! 

So, overall opinion working/living here has been good so far. It is very different work wise and living style but not bad. We are still adjusting but happy. The campus is very modern (founded in 2011) and everyone is super nice. I have good students and my coworkers are nice also. I certainly do miss Colombia but things aren´t bad here. 

See yall next Sunday, Tyler
