New Students

Dear Students and Scholars,

Welcome to Washington University in St. Louis! To make your transition as smooth as possible, WashU CSSA has compiled a list of topics that new students and scholars are most concerned about. We strongly encourage you to read the guides and articles below. For more information, you can browse our forum archive, which includes a broad range of subjects originally published by senior Chinese students on the old CSSA forum.

Please notice that, although we are trying our best to keep the information up-to-date, some content may still be outdated.
