Johns Hopkins University Delegates Visit NTNU

<p><font face="Arial">Staff Writer</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">A group of 12 Political Science major graduate students from Johns Hopkins University arrived at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) and shared their first-day observation of Taiwan with NTNU students at a roundtable event, held by the Office of International Affairs (OIA), this noon.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Ji Yongyong, who originally came from China, said that he has been in town for only one day and it would be difficult for him to come up with real comments.&nbsp; But he would expect more communication and interaction between the Taiwan Strait in the future.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">During the roundtable event, while many of these Johns Hopkins students mentioned that they would be curious about Taiwanese people&rsquo;s cold and &ldquo;it-does-not-concern-me&rdquo; attitude toward the election, NTNU students said that the younger generation in Taiwan actually cares more about finance, education and family related issues instead of politics itself.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">These Johns Hopkins delegates would continue their schedule by visiting National Chengchi University and National Sun Yat-sen University after today&rsquo;s stopping by NTNU.&nbsp; In addition, they will also have chances to meet with delegates from both the Chinese Nationalist Party and the Democratic Progressive Party.&nbsp; Their trip to Taiwan will be completed after the election day and they will be returning to the U.S. on Jan. 13.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Located in Maryland, Johns Hopkins was ranked as the 14th national university within the first tier by the 2008 USNews.com&rsquo;s America&rsquo;s Best Colleges.&nbsp; <br /> </font></p>
