SJC Junior Fellow Markus Schulz-Weiling’s visit to SJU-TW

On October 22, 2014, SJC Junior Fellow Markus Schulz-Weiling, a Ph.D. student from Germany studying Physics, visited St. John’s University in Tamsui, Taiwan (SJU-TW). SJU-TW was founded in 1965 by the alumni of St. John’s University and St. Mary’s Hall of Shanghai, who are also the founders of SJC at UBC. The University began as a Institute of Technology and was officially upgraded to a University of Science and Technology in 2005. During his visit, Markus met Dr. Lawrence Deng, Dean of the Office of International Affairs, and other school officials. He was also invited to give a lecture on his life and research to an undergraduate English class. Markus also shared about life at SJC-UBC and brought greetings from one member of the global Johannean family to another.
