“The experience of studying in CHEMBA really impressed me a lot. It didn’t only result from the brainstorming I experienced, but also the friendships I built with my classmates. I believe that many alumni would have a similar experience: missing the time of getting together with these classmates, and really looking forward to meeting more new friends in CHEMBA. As a CHEMBA student running back and forth between Minnesota and Guangzhou, I have deep feelings on CHEMBA, and I am so glad to be invited to hold a position in the new term of the Alumni Association. I hope that I serve the alumni, provide more opportunity to communicate and learn from each other, and get more alumni together to help promote CHEMBA!” Hu said.
