Happy Summer Holidays from the NYU Shanghai Gazette!

Thank you to all who have shared your stories and followed the Gazette during its inaugural year. Without your dedication to making NYU Shanghai the vibrant place it is there would be no Gazette. 

It is a pleasure to tell the story of this university every week - of your creativity, academic successes, ground-breaking research and community spirit. The Gazette will return in the fall and we will be sending you a survey in the coming weeks to find out what sections you liked, and what you would like to see added. 

Until then, we leave you with this gallery of calligraphic paintings by students of the Chinese culture class. We hope you enjoy it - and have a wonderful summer!
