Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SITU) welcomed international alumni from around the world to celebrate SJTU’s 123rd birthday on April 7.

In recent years, SJTU has seen an increasing number of international students – some whom have even pursued careers in China.

Wherever they’re from, the international alumni help promote SJTU to more foreigners through their life in Shanghai.

After attending the anniversary ceremony, the alumni enjoyed lunch at the cafeteria and hung out around campus, which brought them back to their old days at SJTU.

In the afternoon, the alumni learned about the current international education program at SJTU through a talk organized by the International Student Center. They shared their study experiences and put forward many constructive opinions on international internship as well as employment.

One alumna from Kyrgyzstan said she was willing to facilitate possible cooperation on Chinese courses between her home school and SJTU.

The one-hour talk also gave every participant an opportunity to exchange their views and reconnect with their old friends and teachers.
