Animals in 2014 World Cup"Never join us": netizens tease college freshmen(新华网)    15:24, July 03, 2014Email|Print|Comments      twitter    facebook    Sina Microblog    reddit    Increases the bookmarkdiggGoogleDeliciousbuzzfriendfeedLinkedindiigostumbleuponQzoneQQ MicroblogBEIJING, July 3 -- Chinese netizens, never lacking in self-mockery, have found a new way to greet would-be freshmen who are busy filing college applications."Never join our university because you will find that we have air conditioning in the morgue but not in the dorms, which is beyond imagination," said Weibo user "guiyizhangchudashao" from Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.As many universities try to project their best image in this round of "students rush," comments from insiders provide a different view from the usual official promotion brochures."Never join our university because the campus is like a zoo: we have seen not only cats and dogs, but also deer, peacocks and owls!" said one netizen identified as a student from Southwest Jiaotong University.Majors are also a topic of this wave of online self-deprecation. "Never join the major of archaeology because nobody understands what you are learning," said a placard held by a young lady in an online photo.Other netizens followed her example by wearing written placards reading "never join the English major because too many girls here render you little chance of finding Prince Charming" or "never join the major of preschool education because you will become mentally and physically exhausted taking care of children."Some also joked that their majors do not live up to the impression their names give. "Our work has nothing to do with international, trade, nor international trade," said another placard.Most freshmen said they never consider such "advice" very seriously."When making decisions, I think it is more important for us to follow our own hearts and choose what we really like," said He Li, a high school graduate from Hebei Province.Zheng Tingxuan from Shanghai, who has applied for Jilin University, said he cares more about college academic quality rather than the conditions of dormitories or the cafeteria.However, some have been influenced by others opinions. Wu Chengjie, the top scorer in science in the national college entrance exam for Jiangsu Province, has changed his mind on his subject of study."All the reporters that have interviewed me advised me not to choose journalism, so now I am considering finance," said Wu.According to the Ministry of Education (MOE), 9.39 million applied for this years national college entrance exam, and another 7.27 million university graduates will enter the job market in 2014. The prospect of landing a good job has become a main consideration in college applications and choosing a major.(Editor:Wang Xin、Gao Yinan)Related readingTop 20 universities in Asia 2014 University scolded for dubious recruiting photosGuangdong uni. introduces cooked rice vending machinesUniversities fall short in recruitment of studentsChinese universities jointly hold education exhibition in Cambodian capitalSingapore and Korea take the lead in new-look, QS University Rankings: AsiaA critique of top US schoolsVice president of Sichuan University under investigationMore HK students attend Taiwan collegesTop 10 academies of fine arts in the worldWe RecommendFeatured hutongs in Beijing
