A Congratulation Letter
June 16, 2006
I?m very glad to hear that you have passed the entrance examination and been accepted by a very famous university. I feel very proud of you and I believe you really deserve the honor since you have been working so hard.
As you have mentioned in the letter, there are both some similarities and differences between the college life and the life in high school. On the one hand, you have to go on working hard as there are a lot of subjects for you to learn. On the other hand, in high school, teachers will probably tell you what to learn and how to learn in details and will also monitor your learning performance, while in college, teachers work like tour guides and you have to find out your own way to acquire knowledge and solve problems.
For you, I think to be optimistic is very important. If you hope to adapt yourself to the new environment, you?d better be positive no matter what difficulties you will experience in your college life. May you adapt yourself to the college life as soon as possible!
