QI Xuan and WANG Hongyang, freshmen of atmospheric sciencesat School of Environmental Studies, used to be classmates in junior and senior high schools. They both topped in physics in their class and even formed a band together in high school. They hadn’t discussed during the college application, and not until they got the admissions did they know they applied for the same major of the same school at the same university. On top of that, they live in the same dormitory. “What a coincidence! We can study together again and start a new band.”
