Message to Students

My motto is "do my job in fun, do my hobby in hard."  I am very fun to research and educate software engineering and programming in the University.  In the same time, I am very hard to do my hobby, for example, singing in chorus group.  I recommend to the students to study fun and to do hard in hobby circle during your university life.
