The Summer Olympics were a lot of fun to watch this year.
The Games are held every four years, and there are a variety of
sports featured. This year’s Summer Olympics were hosted in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil. The opening ceremony was on August 5th, and the
On12th, I watched the Men's 100-Meter Butterfly Swim final on television. When it comes to sports, I only know a few professional athletes, and Michael Phelps is one of them. Sadly he didn’t win a gold medal in this round for the United States, while a young Joseph Schooling from Singapore took the win.
The Olympics really bring people together. Everyone shares in the joy of cheering for the human spirit, pushing limits and overcoming obstacles. I highly recommend following the Summer Olympics, if you aren’t already. Watch clips on YouTube if you missed a few games, and

I went to a college friend's wedding in Manhattan two weeks ago! I know both the bride and groom from college. For those who have never been to an American wedding before, I would like to tell you about what it is like. Usually, both the bride and groom's family and friends are invited in advance.

As a graduate student, you have two housing choices. You can live in graduate housing on campus or you can get an apartment.
As I have been looking for an apartment myself, I decided to write a blog about the apartment hunting process. Now before you start looking for a place to stay, think about the following questions: Do you need roommates? A benefit to having roommates is that you will never feel lonely. And if you forget to bring your key with you or you need someone to help you get your delivery when you are on vacation, they will be there. However, if you like living alone, you may want to consider finding a one bedroom apartment.Which town do you want to live in? As many of us noticed, a lot of Chinese students decided to live in different areas. Some of them live further from the campus than other students. I frequently heard places like Hicksville, Levittown and Westbury. It is important to keep in mind that some of you will drive to school for classes, so the dista
Recently I spoke with a friend Mengxue who majors in Information System. She started interning in May for Publishers Clearing House. She shared with me that before she got the internship, she went through an interview with four or five interviewers. Apparently she did well during the screening and now she is working with the analytics team on various projects. 'Career Services has been helping me on resume critique, which is very helpful. I am appreciative of what Career Services has done for me.' She said.
She shared with me that networking and especially social media is very important to her. She utilizes LinkedIn, in particular. Mengxue has added a
