May Holiday gives students a break
panda.jpgSick of constant studying? Tired of intense relationships? Want to relax for a while? Well, this was the week for you. May holiday: no classes, no assignments, no activities, just free time. Time for traveling, shopping, or just plain relaxing? However, not everyone jumped on a train to Wuhan or Chengdu. Some students stayed at Sias International University and enjoyed the solitude. The typically crowded campus turned into an oasis of quiet, as students chatted on the grass around the fountain square. “I just wanted to stay here and relax” said Sarah, a sophomore marketing major. “I traveled to Wuhan during the May holiday last year. It was actually kind of bad. Instead of enjoying the scenery, I could only see people.” Staying on campus isn’t always easy either. “There were only two people who stayed here in my dorm” said Lee, “hot water was not supplied and there was not much food in the student’s dinning hall. It’s kind of a problem to eat.” But not everything was rough on campus over the Holiday. Sias employees Shawn Michael Cui and Coco Xiang were married on May 1. The ceremony was attended by foreigners and students. Sam Ruberti, who taught at Sias last year, returned from Beijing to attend the wedding. Now the week is over; all the students who traveled around China have returned. It’s not easy to go back to classes after a week of rest, but students know it will soon be summer and there will be another break.
