Greetings from Overseas Students Affairs Office of BFSU.
As the National Day is approaching, more and more activities for celebration would be going on, and some undesirable accidents may happen. Therefore, take precautions during the holiday! Here are some tips:
1. Personal safety
Please pay attention to safety precautions. Do not take risks when travelling.
Don't engage in fighting. Do not talk to strangers. Do not accept food or beverage from strangers. Do not go out alone, please. Call 110 for police assistance if you are in danger, please.
Always abide by the law. Reckless drinking, behavioral misconduct after drinking and driving under the influence are all violations of school policy and will be subject to disciplinary actions. Violators will also lose their scholarship status.
Visitors are not allowed to stay over. Do not use high power appliances. Do not use an extension cord for more than one appliance. Students who stay off campus should pay attention to electricity and fire safety. Shut all windows, turn off all switches and lock your room when leaving for extended periods.
Please note that in China cars always keep to the right. At present, there are around 5.6 million motor vehicles and more than 3 million electric bicycles in Beijing. The traffic condition is therefore very complicated. We request all students to pay close attention to traffic safety and obey traffic rules. Please do not take an unlicensed taxi, or ride a motor car or electric bicycle without license. Drunk driving and carrying a passenger are also strictly prohibited.
Please do not leave unsecured important personal belongings or valuables such as wallet, certificates during shopping or other activities. Lock the doors and windows when you are out.
5. Refusing Drugs
According to the law in China, narcotic drugs include marijuana, opium, heroin, morphine, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, pethidine, caffeine and Catha edulis, and other narcotic and psychotropic substances that are addictive; they are all kept under control. Drug-takers for the first time are usually tricked into taking drugs for fun, or into thinking that drugs are not addictive or they can help forget worries, reduce pain or even lose weight, etc.
6. Fraud Alert
Government departments, public security bureaus and judicial offices of China will never request money transfer by phone. Should you have any questions, please refer to the teachers on campus for information.
Crimes now take various forms. Students should be in high alert of them. According to police information, the common types of crime are listed below:
1) QQ hacking and online games transaction fraud;
2) online shopping fraud;
3) online lottery or prize fraud;
4) Network fishing;
5) ticket booking or ordering fraud;
6) job hunting fraud;
7) qualification and examination fraud;

When encountering any type of crime mentioned above, please dial 110 for help.
