University Life: Freedom or Responsibility?

by on Friday, 13 January 2012 Comments

University students Lisa Lo and Yu-Tang Hou (侯昱堂) tell us about their feelings and impressions on university life in the following two videos. They represent the youth of Taiwan, and have both had very different university experiences, but both agree that university is a place where one can simultaneously feel more mature but still enjoy the carefree hapiness of youth.

Lisa is a student of Graphic Communication at National Taiwan Normal University. She comes from Taipei and has found in university a sense of freedom and emancipation, in addition to an opportunity to meet lots of new people from all walks of lfe, which had previously been difficult due to her all-girls school upbringing.


Yu-Tang is a student from the South of Taiwan who has moved to the big city to study Medicine at National Yang Ming University. His initial impression of university didn't live up to the expectations of his childhood and the representations seen on television, but he has grown to enjoy it, and believes university to be a place where you are more independent and free to make your own choices.
