I have benefited a lot from the excellent academics of UC Berkeley, but, as a matter of fact, social life, cultural shock, and travel also played a great role during my days in Berkeley. It has so much fun to attend the event held by IPCP. In the grand Welcome Reception, I made friends with students from Hong Kong, Japan, Italy, and Germany. All of these are something that we have never experienced in Chinese schools.

When I first arrived at Berkely Summer School, I was feeling anxious about whether I would fit in or not. However, as soon as I arrived, I felt at ease, as the friendly staff guided me. I immediately made new friends and started to gain a lot of interest in the topics I was learning at BSS, as the teachers were experts in their fields.

我的老师是一个能够将兴趣，知识，幽默融合在一起的好老师，他通过具体的参数和图示帮助我们理解他的每一个想法，如果满分是 10 分，我给 12 分。
我有幸成为加州大学伯克利分校的 IPCP 的导师。作为一名加州大学伯克利分校的学生，我可以自信地说，IPCP 证明了一种优秀的经验，它能最好地模拟当前大学生的生活方式。IPCP 开发的经验鼓励学生在短时间内成熟，并帮助他们为将来进入大学时所面临的挑战做好准备。作为一名导师，我可以亲眼目睹这些成长过程，我可以诚实地说，这个项目帮助我充分理解了在美国读一所国际学生的大学意味着什么。
我从加州大学伯克利分校的优秀学者那里获益良多，社会生活、文化冲击和旅行在我在伯克利的日子里都发挥了很大的作用。参加 IPCP 举办的活动非常有趣。在隆重的欢迎招待会上，我和来自香港、日本、意大利和德国的学生做了朋友。
作为一名 10 年级的学生，大学录取并不紧急，但有必要了解美国的大学是如何运作的。对我来说，这是我第一次接触教学大纲或讨论课程，我也了解到了教授们的评分规则。所有这些都是我们在中国学校从未经历过的。
