BEIJING, Sept. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A news report by on China's university acceptance letters:

In September, many colleges and universities in China are starting a new school year in succession. Freshmen all hold different letters of acceptance; but, perhaps it is not appropriate to use the word "letter" as they have distinctive forms that are worth examining.

Acceptance letters with cutting edge high-tech

Embedded in the letter of acceptance from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences is a Loongson 3A chip independently developed by the academy. "It looks small, but it can drive the vast world," the university's president tells incoming freshmen in the letter. "I Hope you will read more and see farther from this chip." If you scan the QR code on the admission letter from Tianjin University, a cartoon figure generated by AR will pop up. Upon opening Tsinghua University's admission letter, a micro 3D school gate will stand erect. Several dozen paper components depicting the school gate are engraved with lasers and put together by hand.

Acceptance letters emphasizing traditions

For 13 years in a row, more than 10 retired professors of Shaanxi Normal University have been writing acceptance letters in Chinese calligraphy for its freshmen. Regular script and fragrant ink convey the profound nature of longstanding Chinese culture. Four types of acceptance letters from Beijing Forestry University are based on the images of "mountain, water, wood and people," favored by the Chinese literates.

Acceptance letters with touching feeling

Peking University's acceptance letter is more like a letter to home, using its special stationery. Letters from 7 alumni of different ages are also included in the admission package, sharing their experience on campus.

Acceptance letters providing practical tips

Shanghai started a garbage sorting project from this July, so several Shanghai universities have attached a "garbage sorting guide" to the admission package.

After looking at these acceptance letters, netizens commented that being admitted into a prestigious university is enviable enough, but receiving such an artistic acceptance letter adds an extra special flavor for incoming students!

A small letter of acceptance embodies the style, heritage and creativity of a university. It also reflects the school's humanistic care for the students, and even traditional Chinese culture and technological development. Of course, the essential mission of the university is to teach students how to learn and seek truth, and the letter is just the first dialogue between the two sides. The spirit implied encourages students to delve deep into learning and experiencing during their future university life.

Now, Chinese top universities continue to rise in world ranking — their letters of acceptance not only become more attractive, but also more valuable. Students from all over the world are welcome to attend Chinese universities, to learn, grow and gain friendship as well as experiences in different social and cultural environment.
