Rich students' club may face curbs

AN elite club recruiting rich students in Wenzhou University in Zhejiang Province may face restrictions because it widens the gap between wealthy and ordinary students, according to a unnamed university official.

Students wanting to join the KLSI Private Club must either have a car, a profitable company or a powerful family, although the club aroused Internet criticism when it was scheduled to open last week.

The club has already recruited more than 50 members, with 80 percent from Wenzhou University, according to today's Oriental Morning Post.

Yang Jianhua with the Zhejiang Provincial Academy of Social Science said this kind of club could mislead students because it values wealth and power too much, and its exclusivity could lead to conflicts among students.

Club founder Wang Hang explained that he wanted to attract top students who could network while starting their careers.

But most members were student leaders and only 20 percent owned cars, Wang said. Few have a company or have plans to start one.
