My name is Qiuyu Chu and I was born in China. This is my first year at OSU. In my free time, I like to play some games with my friends, including computer games and board games. Watching animation is a good way for me to relax and there are many excellent animations, such as clannad, jojo, and Rick and Morty. I also like to play Rubik’s cube and I used to memorize a lot of formulas in order to improve my recover speed.
When I was young, because of my parents’ work, I went to several cities in my country, such as Shanghai, Beijing, Jinan, and Fuzhou. Therefore, I have different experiences in different places. Food in different places have different taste. In some places, people are preferring to eat sweet and they often put sugar when they cook. However, in the northern part of China, people tend to prefer salty food, and some restaurants even serve salt on the table. And the climate in different places have much differences. Although the winters in the north are colder, the winters in the south tend to be worse. Because the winters in the south aren’t that cold, there’s no heating for people to use, resulting the temperature inside is as cold as outside.
Now, I chose to go to the Ohio State University to study. The first reason is this university’s excellent education resources. Professors in this university are very conscientious and patient with their students. At the same time, the school provides students with a lot of academic resources, including the school’s laboratory, library and some commonly used apps. In addition, the sports, especially the football, in this university is good and OSU also provides a very large gym for students to use. And the climate in Columbus is similar to the city I live in, so I believe I can adapt to the environment well. In the university, I wish to learn more professional knowledge about the mathematics and other interesting subjects that can enrich my knowledge. For example, I want to learn how to analyze the database, how to create some apps and webs by writing codes and the history of the United States or even the world.
