SEI 2017 每日更新 第25日


East Coast Travel Week Day 1

东海岸旅游周第一日

After a late night of saying goodbyes to friends and sharing memories, 37 SEI students and 13 staff members arose early in the morning to catch their 5.5-hour flight to Boston, MA for the first day of the East Coast Travel Week. While travel days can be exhausting, students enjoyed a chance to sleep on their flight before their second travel week begins (and staff didn’t mind the rest either!). Upon landing in Boston, the staff and students shared a meal together and checked into their hotel before 7:00pm. Due to the time difference on the East Coast (3 hours ahead of the West Coast) it is important that students get readjusted to a healthy sleeping schedule before the traveling continues. The SEI students will be well-rested for our big college visits to Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the morning.

在一晚的告别与分享美好时光后,37位SEI学生与13位员工一大清早起床去赶五个半小时开往波士顿的航班,开始了东海岸旅游周的第一日。尽管长途跋涉令人疲乏劳累,学生们在第二个旅行周开始之前在飞机上饱睡了一觉(工作人员也不例外)。抵达波士顿后,员工和学生们一起享用晚餐,七点前入住了酒店。由于东海岸的时差(比西海岸快三小时),学生们在更多的旅程开始前,最重要的就是重新回到一个健康的睡眠作息时间。到了明早,学生们会精神焕发,预备访问两个常春藤联盟大学——哈弗大学和麻省理工学院。
