EXCITING AND CHALLENGING

THE ENVIRONMENT OF MY UNIVERSITY IS VERY PEACEFUL AND GREENISH. STUDENTS ENJOY THE SHADED AREAS AND LIKE TO HAVE OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES LIKE BIKING. I STILL REMEMBER THERE IS TWO ROWS OF BIG TREES GREW ALONG THE ROAD IN THE FRONT OF MAIN ENTRANCE. THE SCENERY IS SO MAGNIFICENT !
