September is the month when a new semester begins in most Chinese schools. For freshmen of university, it means more than that. After a long and crazy summer holiday, these boys and girls finally say goodbye to their tough high-school years, comfortable homes,  close friends and family - they sail out to explore a new life in the universities that they have long dreamed of.

Some parents might accompany their children to the campus and give them a hand on the registration day. But the parents' help ends there. To begin with, the freshmen must take the military training before they step into the classroom - the first challenge they will encounter in their new life. All of the universities in China have mandatory military training for freshmen before they begin their studies. It is said that this training will help them cultivate a strong will and a sense of discipline.

Following are some photos of the registration day and the military training.
