“I am lucky to have enthusiastic teachers who care deeply about student's personal and educational development. I really enjoy doing research with a group of people. Besides, lecturers taught me a lot of research skills such as literature review, setting hypothesis, data processing and analysis. It is an unforgettable experience throughout the college life.” replied by Becky Ho, one of the survey team members.
