SUSTech admission packages head out to the Class of 2024
Chris Edwards | 08/12/2020

The Class of 2024 at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) will start receiving the delicately designed admissions packages in the coming days.

The bright orange box is bright like the sun and marks the new beginning for the Class of 2024. As the new students open the box, it will launch the next step in the lives of these young men and women. It is their opportunity to explore the infinite possibilities that SUSTech provides as they build a world-class university, rooted in China.

The multi-layered package is reminiscent of an elegant piece of Chinese art. The admissions letter is paired with a 10th-anniversary medal and an orange pen that we hope our first-year students will record their first steps and successes at SUSTech.

After they unwrap their first layer, they will find important information below. There is a map of campus to help guide students around our leafy grounds. There is also a layout of the majors that are taught in each department and school. The Class of 2024 will be able to start planning their future with the map. They can check out research laboratories, learning about different departments and majors, or meeting with our esteemed faculty members.

Below the second layer, the Class of 2024 will find an exquisite white box that contains a delicate lamp in the shape of a book.

As the book is opened, a poem by SUSTech President Shiyi CHEN emerges across the edge of the pages. It extols the virtues of SUSTech and the potential of the Class of 2024.

Beneath the attractive lamp, the final layer contains nine documents that will help the Class of 2024 prepare in advance for a healthy campus life all the way south. They include the Freshman Handbook, the Admissions Guide, and a Club Introduction Brochure. Most importantly, every student will receive a custom mask to protect them during these challenging times.

We look forward to seeing the Class of 2024 in the coming weeks.
