On the evening of November 22nd, hosted by School of International Education of SWUPL, a VR experiencing activity named "The Journey of Technology and Psychology" was held in the International Student Activity Center. International students took an active part in games and interaction, experiencing VR technology and learning about its application in daily life. Qing Jie, Dean of School of International Education, also attended the activity. She presented gifts to the students and held cordial talks with them.

The atmosphere was lit up by the two warm-up games "Decrypting Mission" and "Unity is Strength". These games brought much laughter and the students soon became lively. The two teams in a game even suggested adding an extra round.

Through VR technology, students got access to the virtual dreamlands and virtual scenes. By wearing VR glasses, the experiencers could stand on the top of the 70-story building, which could help treat the fear of heights. While experiencing a variety of virtual scenes presented by the VR glasses helped students achieve the psychological effect of catharsis and relaxation. VR technology won the consistent high praise from the students. 

The activity was hosted by School of International Education, Institute of Judicial Identification and Institute of Evidence Science; co-organized by AL Psychology team, Digibird, VR Dreams Technology Co., Ltd. and Volunteer Organization of International Education of SWUPL. In the activity, international students got closer to each other and improved their scientific literacy.
