As an important stop in the “Shanghai Dream” tour, the students glimpsed into NYU Shanghai’s unique teaching environment and creative curriculum design. During the campus tour, they interacted with teaching fellows and professors, gaining an insight into majors they might be inspired to pursue. The students, all from poor families, were motivated to study harder to get into college, and to shape their own future.
