Tongji University organized a lecture on campus safety for its international students on June 25 to strengthen their general understanding and awareness of China's laws and regulations and campus safety. Co-organized by the International Students Office and the Security Office at Tongji University, the lecture attracted more than 100 international students from a number of our colleges and schools, such as the College of Civil Engineering, the International School of Tongji University, the College of Environmental Science and Engineering, and the School of Medicine.
The lecture focused on raising the students' awareness of drug abuse on campus. Officer REN from the Wenbao Branch of Shanghai Municipal Public Security Bureau was invited to provide the international students with anti-drug knowledge. He elaborated on recent cases of drug abuse among international students and showed some interesting videos. Mr. Ren clearly explained the definitions of drugs in Chinese law and the legal responsibility for drug use in China. Additionally, he offered ten tips to help international students avoid exposure to and use of drugs. The information he gave was well received by the international students.
To strengthen campus safety education, the Security Office and the International Students Office promoted campus safety on June 26, the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDAID), by setting up display boards and distributing pamphlets in high-traffic campus zones. We hope that these measures will help raise our international students' safety awareness and thus ensure that our campus remains safe and secure.
