It was great experience living in the CMU campus for a week with my son. The people in Shenyang region are very warm and hospitable; they are very helpful towards foreigners. The new campus of CMU is one of the best University campus I have seen in the world; the campus size is huge with all latest facilities - Gym, running track field, excellent library, huge cafeteria, supermarket, barber shop, internet cafe, small shopping shop for buying fruits and other necessary commodities. There is also a regular bus service from the West gate of the University to take you to the Jijiya Mall (pronounced as Chichiya) - where students can open a bank account, and eat in KFC or shop for cheaper deals.
I am attaching few pics of the new campus for your information. And in this new batch sep 2013, there were over 60 new Indian students - so they plan to have separate cafeteria for Indian students - Father of Ahmed Abbas, CMU
