2021-02-25

This last Spring Festival was very special. It should have been a time of family reunion, but due to COVID-19 prevention and control, many ECNUers chose to spend the vacation on campus. While some of them went out to explore the beautiful landscape and unique culture of Shanghai, others worked on scientific research and took part in university competitions.

Following are some ECNUers’ unforgettable experiences during this special winter vacation.

Zhang Xiaolin

Zhang Xiaolin, from Hebei Province, didn’t return home during the vacation. She said, “I will graduate from ECNU and leave Shanghai in half a year, so I want to make good use of the winter holiday to explore the city as much as possible. I have found many uniquely attractive stores on the streets. I also went to famous exhibitions of different kinds.” She thought the most impressive one is the tours across the Huangpu River by ferry which she madeduring this winter vacation. “I’m very much impressed by the achievements Pudong has made in the past thirty decades, ” she said.

Bake Seohui

Bake Seohui, a Korean student, chose to spend the vacation in Shanghai too. “This is my fourth year in this city,” she said. “I really enjoy my life here.” Bai Ruixi is especially interested in Shanghai culture, particularly the city’s dialects, food and history. She is going to further her study in Shanghai, which means more chances to explore the city. During the winter vacation, she and her classmates visited Shanghai History Museum and East Nanjing Road. She recalled a display that reveals Shanghainese celebrate the Chinese New Year. “Together with my teachers and classmates, I didn’t feel lonely at all during this winter. ECNU and Shanghai are like my second home!”

Due to COVID-19 concerns, Mu Boshuai didn’t celebrate the Chinese New Year with his family for the first time. On campus, he spent most of his time doing scientific research and entertaining himself as a form of relaxation. “Celebrating the Spring Festival on campus is an unforgettable experience. The university cared for the students who chose to stay on campus and prepared many activities and a delicious New Year Eve dinner for us.”
