THE THIRD IFU COLLEGE CARNIVAL

2020 College Carnival Ended In Success
— IFU Assists Your Studying Abroad Needs

IFU seniors are pleased to meet new and old friends online this year. The seniors shared how to adapt to the changes and how to become international talents in the increasingly fierce competition, and our guest speakers analyzed the environment and policy of universities in the United States.
