海外课堂 | 穿越美国20天，满载回忆，其乐无穷
If there were time shuttles in reality, we would definitely want to return to the perfect journey of these 34 people. It has long been fixed that the tone of the American route is orderly and meaningful. Now we’ve made it! It’s extremely educational and stimulating to study at the Wharton School and to visit so many famous universities. Meanwhile, it’s well organized to go hiking and do group activities together. We found it so much fun to recall all those interesting memories.
On January 24th，we went to the photography paradise Horseshoe Bend and Lake Powell, the second largest artificial lake in the United States. After that, Principal Liu led us to do the periodic summary, from the aspects of "travelling" and "learning", and instructed students to choose the subjects they’d like to research. The following are some of the results. Through the research, we had opportunities to have a deeper understanding of the topics we were interested in. Some students resorted to face-to-face interviews to communicate with local people; some students used Photoshop to compose their own aircraft models; some students collected a large amount of information from foreign websites. Thanks to every opportunity to do research, we learned how to collect materials, process information, and various research methods, which help lay the foundation for future life.
On January 25th, we went to the Antelope Canyon, the world's famous slit-shaped canyon and a popular location for photography. Our tour guide was an Indian, who explained the history of the formation of the Antelope Canyon. The natural erosion of millions of years made it such a splendid and breathtaking view.
After traveling around Utah, we came to San F-rancisco, California on January 26th. We witn-essed the special charm of the Lombard Stre-et, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Fisherma-n's Wharf. We also experienced the academic atmosphere of the University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University. We saw the advanced technology of Silicon Valley. What i-mpressed a lot were the suggestions from th-e senior from the Stanford University. He mentioned that the advantages of studying there: the opportunities to do intern in Silicon Valley, to get in touch with the business entrepreneurs and to get to know their working style, and t-o achieve wealth freedom. He also mentioned that it’s inevitable to endure high pressure fro-m school, peers, and society.
I look forward to being strong enough to support our dreams.
