Funny and optimistic are always described by the people related to me. And I really like these descriptions. My name is Zhuowei Yu and my English name is David. I come from Changzhou China the city which is very suitable for living. I am a freshmen living in the Houck House in north campus. And let me know if you guys live around me. Houck House is a very small building which just has three floors and not as much as people living in Morill Tower. In my opinion that I think it is the best place for living and studying because Houck House is quiet and not too crowd. Additionally, the location of Houck House is very convenient: the best dining hall Scott and a new gym are near the Houck House. Also I want to introduce my family. It is a small family but full of happiness. My mother is a professor teaching Design of clothes in the college and my father is a manager in the international company. Nowadays my mother is studying at University of Cincinnati as a visiting scholar. Cincinnati sets near Columbus as a result it is convenient for my mother to come and see me. Last Sunday my mother brought some dumplings to me which let me recall the days when I was in high school. Then I would like to share my hobbies and interests. I am crazy about soccer and I am a fan of Real Madrid. I never miss any matches of Real Madrid. I am not only the crazy fan of soccer but also the good soccer player. In the past two months, I have played soccer several times with many people. Also I’m good at many sports like badminton, basketball, swimming and Ping-Pong.



My past experience

Studying in OSU is not my first time go abroad. I have been to United States when I was in high school. I took part in the world championship about robots(FTC) in St. Louis. That’s my first time in the US. My team and I felt exciting to go abroad. During the competition of robots, I have met so many people from other countries around the world. They are kind and enthusiasm even they are the opponents on the other side. We got many problems like where to have meals and where the attractions are. Fortunately, we can get help from anyone in the St. Louis.

The competition was set in a big stadium and there were hundreds of people watching the competition. Although that was the first time I attend in FTC project, I have already got the champion in China. But I still realized that the technology we used on our robots is not as well as others’. Finally, we just got the 20th in this FTC competition. After that we went to the Orlando. There are biggest Disney Land and Universal. They are large enough that we cannot play half of the rides in one day. However, it was the happiest time during my time in the United States.





 OSU life

The most thing attracts me to choose OSU is that there are many clubs activities. Nowadays I have already attended many clubs like Archer club, swimming club and Pistol club. Studying in the university is hard than in the high school. I may feel stressful if I just learning and doing my homework. However, these activities can help me to release the stress and provide a good condition to study again. These activities make my life in OSU colorful. Then let me share my study plan. I am a Physic major student now but I am planning to change my major to the ECE. Taking all the lectures and classes, doing all the homework and taking notes are the most important things for me to do. However, I don’t think it is enough for me. I am looking for the researches which are opened to the freshmen. It is wonderful to meet the professor and do the research with the sophomores and juniors even I didn’t do any researches before. It may be a challenge for me but I will accomplish it because doing the research can let me know more people, improve my knowledge and learn how to cooperate with others.
