人民日报海外网报道:康奈尔大学中国经济研究所成功举办第二届夏令营

来源:海外网 09-06 07:55 7月,正是康奈尔大学一年中最美的时节。康奈尔大学中国经济研究所(CICER)第二届夏令营吸引了来自人民大学、中央财经大学、南开大学、复旦大学等20所高校的老师和同学们。在CICER,参与今年夏令营活动的63名本科生同学和15名研究生同学带着他们想要分享的生活与理想互相交流,一起学习,共同生活。 7月15日傍晚起,随着两部机场大巴陆续抵达康奈尔大学学生宿舍区,参加夏令营的老师和同学们总算正式入住舒适的Carl Becker House。近20个小时的辗转旅途不免疲惫,可是一想到期待已久的CICER夏令营翌日就要正式开营,大家内心的兴奋丝毫未减。 7月16日,CICER夏令营的开学典礼在Physical Science Building的大会议厅举行。CICER的李捷老师作为夏令营项目的策划人向参加第二届夏令营的老师和同学们表达了热烈的欢迎,并向大家介绍了今天出席开学典礼的各位嘉宾。CICER的两位主任,李善军教授和贾攀乐教授向大家细致地介绍了他们领头创办CICER和策划夏令营项目的初衷,CICER一路走来的点滴和未来进一步发展的方向。随后,他们一一向大家介绍了即将在夏令营中为大家授课和做学术研讨会的各位教授,以及他们的专业领域和学术成果。最后,他们表达了对各位同学的期望,期望大家都能充分利用CICER以这次夏令营为平台为大家整合的学术资源,充分体验在康奈尔的大学生生活。 接下来的两周,CICER为同学们安排了内容丰富的小课程和学术报告会,受邀前来为大家授课的教授都在各自的领域有着杰出的研究成果。在这些教授的睿智与幽默并存的课堂上,同学们聚精会神,像海绵一样吸取知识。 要问在康奈尔大学的学习生活怎么样?最有发言权的莫过于在校园里学习生活的学长学姐。为了能让大家更详细地了解在康奈尔生活、学习、科研的点滴和申请北美研究生的建议,CICER组织了经验交流会,让学长学姐们分享他们的申请经验、学习方法和研究成果。劳逸结合才能事半功倍。除了学习和科研,CICER也为大家安排了丰富的课余活动。 两周充实而快乐的学习时光很快就过去了,紧张的结业考试之后,大家终于能好好放松一下,以愉快轻松的心情来参加CICER精心准备的夏令营毕业典礼。毕业典礼上,康奈尔大学国际事务教务长Wendy Wolford首先致辞,感谢大家来到康奈尔并鼓励大家将在康奈尔大学度过的这段时光作为下一段重要旅程的新起点,祝愿大家未来的学习生活一切顺利。CICER的李善军教授和贾攀乐教授为同学们颁发了毕业证书并和大家一一合影留念。同学们也纷纷上台,分享了自己在这次夏令营中的收获与感想,感谢朝夕相处的同窗,也感谢CICER全体工作人员为这次夏令营所作出的努力。 从7月15日到8月4日,大家一起度过了在CICER夏令营的每一天。快乐的时光总是短暂,但是美好的记忆和经历却会陪伴大家一起走过未来的每一天。(来源:微信公众号CICER)
