Yangming University and Jiaotong University, formerly two universities, were officially merged into “National Yangming Jiaotong University” in February this year. At that time, many alumni were attracted to take photos with the school’s old signboard. Recently, however, there has been a controversy in the Yangming Student Union. The new version of the freshman handbook clearly shows that there are too many “transportation” in the word “Yangming.”

In the Facebook discussion page of “Kaobeishengke”, some netizens put up a new student handbook produced by the Yangming Student Union. You can see the Chinese and English words “National Yangming Jiaotong University” on it, but the Chinese word for “transportation” It was shrunk and placed next to “Yangming”, making netizens jokingly called “Zhuyin” at all. The netizen who posted the article was also angry and said, “Do you look down on National Chiao Tung University?”
The word “traffic” was reduced in one fell swoop, and it was interpreted as a dwarf and discriminated against Jiaotong University. The Yangming Student Union also issued an apology statement on Facebook, pointing out that the traffic was reduced in order to highlight the Yangming campus when the layout was designed, but the follow-up was triggered. For the dispute, the Yangming Student Association apologizes to everyone.

However, they also emphasized that there is absolutely no intention of dwarfing the campus of Jiaotong University or destroying peer-to-peer schools. The dispute will be reviewed in depth to avoid the same situation from happening again. The Student Union stated that it has updated the electronic version of the student pack file and will be more careful in the future. In this regard, some alumni of Jiaotong University laughed and said, “I have known this news for so long after I graduated from Jiaotong University. It’s really good publicity!”PUT 1xbet
