ZJSU Faculty and Students Pay Close Attention to the Safety of ZJSU Students in Japan
(2011/3/21)
Since the earthquake hit Japan on Friday afternoon and triggered the powerful Tsunami, teachers and students have expressed concern for the safety of ZJSU students studying in Japan.
The Students' Affairs Department and the School of Japanese Language and Culture have immediately asked interrelated teachers to contact our students in Japan. As the cell phone network broke off with the earthquake, our students could not be reached at all. The interrelated tutors tried their best to get in touch with their students by e-mail, QQ, and renren.com, and also called their parents one by one. Through the unremitting efforts, the tutors finally got in touch with those undergraduate and post-graduate students, and learnt that they were all safe by 7:24 pm, March 13th. Then the tutors called their parents one by one, to report the good news.
On the evening of March 13th, the School of Japanese Language and Culture received an Email letter from Shen Xiaodan, one of our exchange students in Japan. The letter expressed a feeling of panic caused by the aftershocks and nuke leakages, and appealed for help. The teachers of the School replied the Email immediately and urged our students there to pay attention to the timely announcements given by the Chinese Embassy in Japan, and to write down the emergency number. At the same time, the students were reminded to keep in touch, as ZJSU teachers would try their best to provide support.
