Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), a cooperative university founded by China’s Xi’an Jiaotong University and the UK’s University of Liverpool in SIP’s Dushu Lake Science & Education Innovation Zone, opened its campus to thousands of visitors from home and abroad as it kicked off its first XJTLU International Day Festival on Oct 20.
The event, part of the 2019 Suzhou International Day celebration, is free to the public from 13:00 to 21:00pm. It included food fair, art and craft market, street performances, salsa dancing and graffiti experience activities, games for kids and stage shows to give the visitors unforgettable cross-cultural experiences.
Among the visitors were local citizens, foreign friends, students and enterprise employees. The grilled Mexican sausages, Caribbean hot dogs and Suzhou-style sweet porridge won the favour of lots of people, and many kids were reluctant to leave the playground ingeniously built with paper. Everyone, young or old, was happy and excited.
