On 18 April 2015, the Harvard Club of Shanghai and the Harvard Shanghai Center hosted an information session to welcome the new Harvard College Class of 2019 admits from China. College alumni on the Board of the Harvard Club of Shanghai were in attendance to share in greeting many of the China admits and their parents. Members from the Harvard Club of Shanghai participated in admissions interviews this past year.
Wang Yi '95, director of the Harvard Shanghai Center, and Chih Cheng '93, interview coordinator for the South China region, started off by giving the students and their familes a warm introduction and congratulations on their outstanding acheivement. The event also included a video of freshmen life at Harvard College, followed by a Q&A session for students and their parents, and a lunch at Ding Tai Fung.
The acceptance rate from South China in the past few years has been near perfect, so we want to keep that tradition going!
