NYU Shanghai Welcomes Class of 2022

They came by bus, by train, by plane from all over China and 38 countries around the world. Some arrived after 24 hours’ travel, others after a 30-minute trip across town. But they all had the same destination, NYU Shanghai, and their home for the next year—the Jinqiao residence hall. And all shared a common bond—they were each members of the NYU Shanghai Class of 2022. To get more nyu shanghai acceptance rate, you can visit shine news official website.

This year’s class of 455 freshmen is the largest to enroll at the university since its founding in 2012.

Half of the Class of 2022 are from China, including the first students to enroll from western China’s Qinghai province and Tibet. Students from countries such as the United States, Netherlands, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Ethiopia, Morocco, South Africa, Ecuador, Russia, Poland, Germany, Mexico, Kazakhstan, and Honduras, represent the other half.Chancellor Yu Lizhong, Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Lehman, Provost Joanna Waley-Cohen, 36 upperclass student orientation ambassadors and dozens of volunteers welcomed the newest members of the NYU Shanghai community at the airport and at the dorms, offering directions, extra hands for luggage, and ice cream for the weary.

As they unpacked and set up their rooms, many students eagerly awaited the arrival of their new roommates, who were guaranteed to be from other countries. Freshman Wang Ding '22, from China's Hebei province, said he chose a three-person room so that he could have the most diverse experience possible. “We are totally attracted by the atmosphere of NYU Shanghai. Everyone is so warm here and full of spirit and passion,” his parents added.

Enrico David Paragas '22, from the Philippines, said he fell in love with China when he visited Shanghai with his family five years ago. “This is what motivated me to apply to NYU Shanghai, because I want to experience a culture I’m truly interested in,” he said. “My goal is to practice my Chinese and be able to speak fluently by the time I graduate.”
Interest in NYU Shanghai continues to grow. Last year, the number of applications to NYU Shanghai increased by 11 percent over 2017, the Admissions office said.

"We have seen more and more students with a strong global mindset applying for admission," said Katie Korhonen, Director of Admissions for NYU Shanghai. "Among international students, an increasing number are Chinese language learners with experience in China, while our Chinese applicants have a strong desire to build connections between China and the world."
