University Students Punished With Emoticons

College Students Punished with Emoticons

A professor in China apparently made his late students write out 1000 emoticons by hand after being late to class. ┐('~';)┌ As reported by The Straits Times, CNBeta and ShanghaiIst, this went down at the University of Electronic Science and Technology in Chengdu, where one rather strict professor thought this was the best way to deal with tardiness.

CCTV explains that it's not uncommon for teachers to make late students copy a few lines of text as punishment, but this seems rather extreme, no? According to ShanghaiIst, the reaction online in China ranged from bemusement to criticism over such a seemingly pointless exercise.

    Didn't realise university was so much like high-school in China. It seems crazy to me to treat adults like that.

    Different cultures, I guess.
