ISO also would like to remind you to pay attention to the safety issues during the winter vacation.
Be careful and not to get involved in any illegal religious activity, including illegal religious gatherings and cross-regional activities organized by unauthorized organizations. Last year a group of students attended such kind of gathering without the permission of USTC and Chinese government, which has violated Chinese regulation and provoked the investigation of authority.
Not to get involved in any illegal commercial activity. If students are interested in internship program during winter holiday, first of all they need to get the approval from supervisor and ISO. The commercial activities not approved by USTC will be treated as illegal.
Pay full attention to accommodation safety. Be careful when you use electrical equipment in dormitory to prevent fire accident. Be cautious about theft and fraud during the holiday. Please be highly attentive to your own security and property security even if China in general is one of the safest countries in the world to work and live. Once you are not in your dormitory, do remember to close the window and door, and ensure that water, electricity and gas are also turned off. No matter when international students leave school and Hefei, do not forget to ask for leave from supervisor and ISO.
ISO cares about international students’ physical and psychological health. If they themselves, their friends or schoolmates face any health problem during holiday, feel free to contact ISO. We will do our best to help our students. In case of emergency, here are some numbers you may need:
