Hello, everyone! My name is Lei Wang and I am from Beijing, China. I am a 3rd-year Economics student at St John’s College and I have been studying at Durham University for four years. During this time I have completed a Foundation programme and I am now going into the final year of my Bachelor degree. In my spare time I act as a Student Ambassador for the International Office and look after the University’s Weibo account.
Life on the campus is as vibrant as you make it. My standard day tends to range from a 9:00 AM statistics lecture (and several hours shouting profanities at the textbook until it makes sense) on one day, to parading through the heart of Stockton in the rain with a wrought iron rod dressed in Victorian black tie the next (that admittedly was only a one-off).
