SJTU = Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
From May 1, the security level of SJTU has been raised to a level I had never saw, heard of, or even imagined in the last 15 years (since I first stepped in the campus in 1995). I saw the different today.
The campus was completely closed with the big automatic fence about the height of my shoulder closed all the time.
For cars, they will check the specially issued permit and an IC card before they open the gate. They have to make sure that your car is of resident on the campus.
For people, they check carefully for student, faculty ID or other working permit one by one. They opened a very narrow entrance just allowing one person to pass, and there are many security guards jamming the entrance.
For others who don’t have a campus car permit, or don’t have a student/faculty ID, sorry, no entrance.
The problem for us now is, the package delivery people has to call the receiption from outside the campus (like UPS, Fedex, or EMS), and the person needs to go out of the campus himself to pick it.
What is all this for?
