SAF Correspondent Yue Shao from Xiamen University is reporting from UC Santa Barbara.
One of my favorite things about the campus is the grass. When the California sun isn’t too strong, a short nap on the grass at noon makes me really happy. The library has a bright learning atmosphere; students can obtain materials and have a variety of spots to study. My classmates are really enthusiastic, and they even provide me rides if I need it. Public transportation here isn’t as common, so it might not be convenient for those who don’t have a car to go to places that are kind of far. Do not be shy to ask help from others — they will be happy to help! You'll often hear compliments, whether it's about your clothes or how you look today. It shows how important respecting each other and behaving within the rules of the community is.
