On the January 8, 2018 afternoon, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) was so pleased to welcome and organize the international student exchange program for the lecturers and students from Temple University. Founded in 1884, Temple University is renowned as one of the leading public research-oriented institutions in Philadelphia, the United States of America.
On this occasion, both lecturers and students from the two universities got the chances to participate in several interesting activities: academic discussions, American and Vietnamese cultural performances, Vietnamese folk games. Particularly, lecturers and students from Temple University were introduced to Vietnamese calligraphy which was also well performed by Mr. Nguyen Huu Tin (a calligraphist and a lecturer at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, TDTU). The cosy and welcoming atmosphere helped students from the two universities open their relationships, and gain more knowledge in terms of tourism and social work.
