CTBC International Academy Newsletter_Week 16

The students at CIA had a very special visitor last week. A group of officials including the president and provost from the University of Houston Downtown (UHD) paid a visit to Tainan and our campus. UHD boasts an unbeatable location in the heart of America’s fourth largest city. Close to many of Houston’s attractions and public transportation, the UHD provides a very unique post-secondary experience. With programs for a variety of interests, current students of UHD can enroll in business, social sciences and science and technology among others. UHD President, Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz gave an inspiring speech to the students about pursuing your career, taking control and not being afraid to make mistakes. The CIA would hopefully like to start an academic exchange partnership between the two schools. Students from CIA could get a sense of the American entrepreneurial spirit and hard work it takes to be successful in a free market economy. UHD students would have the chance to be fully immersed in a uniquely modern yet traditional environment in Tainan. Needless to say, the partnership would provide unforgettable experiences for all involved.
