Freshman brings 19 bags to uni

A UNIVERSITY freshman from an apparently wealthy family has stunned her fellow students by arriving on campus with 19 suitcases as well as two tourist guides.

Her actions have sparked online discussions about luxuries enjoyed by wealthy families, Xinmin Evening News reported yesterday.

The student's parents drove a luxury limousine to send her to college in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, to register for the new semester on September 2, the report said.

On seeing the four-person dormitory, the parents asked the university to provide a one-bed room for their daughter or add a private toilet in the existing dorm.

The university rejected their requirements, the girl's tutor told the newspaper.

The report didn't name the university but said it is a national key school.
