An unfamiliar environment, new professors and classmates, tough English textbooks, random tests, papers and experiment reports -- studying in Abu Dhabi has been so challenging that my son always stays up late. He often complains on WeChat: "Why does school library close at 2:00 am？It is so early that I have to find another place to study." Although studying there is not easy, I am really happy to discover his rapid growth in NYU global network education system.
