Participant CBL International Oxford Summer Abroad at Oriel College 2012
Someone asked a hawk:” Why do you would like to educate your children in the high sky?” “If I educate them just on the ground, how can they have courage to fly to the sun when they have to be independent”? The hawk answered: Like the parent hawk giving its baby hawk the chance to the immense sky, our Nankai University give us the chance to join in this summer camp to Oxford University, in order to encourage us to experience studying and living in the first-class university in the whole world–Oxford University.
Before joining the Oxford University summer camp, we were unable to understand how the great scientist Stephen Hawking became “the greatest living scientist” even with a disabled body. Also, before joining in the Oxford University summer camp, we were unable to understand how the famous poet Shelley created a lot of classic work that were handed down from generation after generation. And before joining in the Oxford University summer camp, we were unable to understand how the outstanding writer Qian Zhongshu grew to one of the most predominant writers in Chinese.
All of these can not be understood until be comprehended by oneself in the historical university. Oxford University and Nankai University build a platform for us, so that we could get the opportunity to explore and comprehend Oxford University, which brought our spirit and soul inspired.
