Through generous investment from famous business entrepreneur, educational philanthropist and member of the Fudan school board Mr. Cao Qiyong, the Asian Youth Centre was constructed with the aim of promoting mutual understanding and friendly interaction between Asian students, and to nurture the Asian leaders of tomorrow through international exchange programs.
Fudan Asian Youth Centre has adopted a mixed accommodation program where local Chinese students and Asian international students live together, on top of which diverse and enriching cultural exchange activities encourage students from all across Asia to live and grow together. Over the past year, under the leadership and organisation of the Asian Youth Centre Committee, we have organised large-scale activities like Mid-Autumn Festival activities, icebreaker activities, Hanami @ Gucun Park in collaboration with Jiaotong University, pottery workshops, Korean culture festival etc. We have also arranged for weekly workshops such as boxing lessons, Korean language lessons and guitar lessons. As students from AYC, we strive to embrace the values of openness, diversity and exchange, in the process making AYC an even better platform for cultural exchange to take place.
In the future, Fudan AYC will continue to roll out programs as planned, and will continue to welcome both local and international students keen for global exchange into our extended family!
