Quotes

...NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson said, "Despite being a young university and ramping up on research only about 10 years ago, NTU has made another big leap here, which is consistent with our upward trajectory in other rankings such as the QS and Times Higher Education rankings. This is another clear indication that NTU has made big progress in global research."
Fellow K-pop star Jung In said, "When I heard about this charity event the NTU students were planning, I thought it was such a fantastic idea. It is very admirable that the NTU students are helping other students to receive the financial support they need for their education so they can create a better life for themselves and their families. Music touches everyone and Gary and I are happy we can use our music to help them achieve their target."
