After all, Secretary Liu was very busy. He said a few more bureaucratic words in front of the camera. Once he was done with his fake act, he then left.
Lu Zhou was surprised to see that Professor Wang also left. After those two left, the media also dispersed a lot.
Why do I feel like I was being taken advantaged?
It was not like Lu Zhou lost anything, so he did not really care.
Dean Qin looked at Lu Zhous backpack and asked, Youre going to the library?
Lu Zhou nodded, Yeah, Im studying there.
Dean Qin smiled and said, Im going that way as well, lets walk together?
The administrative building was not that far from the library and the two walked along the brick road toward the librarys direction.
On the way, Dean Qin suddenly smiled and said, What did I say last time? Does this count as earth-shattering?
Lu Zhou smiled embarrassedly as he said, I think Its still a little different from earth-shattering.
Dean Qin smiled and said, Ah, youre quite ambitious. Even Everyone Daily published about you. If this doesnt count as earth-shattering, what is?
Lu Zhou was shocked, Everyone Daily?!
Dean Qin raised his eyebrows and smiled, he said, You didnt read it online?
Um Actually I just woke up.
Dean Qin shook his head and said, You shouldnt stay up that late, strive for longevity. Youre different than me. You still have a long road to go, so you shouldnt hurt your body.
Lu Zhou replied, I know. He actually wanted to say, I didnt stay up. Its because I injected the needle so I slept for longer.
The article in Everyone Daily was pretty interesting and it mentioned you. If youre interested, you can look through it, said Dean Qin with a smile. He continued, Secretary Liu read that article in the morning and rushed to our school in the afternoon.
Is that why he came?
Lu Zhou was amazed.
Although he guessed that Secretary Liu was politically interested in his thesis, he had not expected it to be because of Everyone Daily.
However, once he thought about it carefully, it made more sense. After all, Everyone Dailys report reflected the attitude of the entire country. If upper class people cared about it, lower class people cared about it as well. It had been like this since ancient times.
Lu Zhou was deeply moved.
However, he never cared that much about politics, so he should stay away from it.
When Dean Qin saw that Lu Zhou did not speak, he said, Professor Tangs view is actually correct. You must guard yourself from arrogance and stay away from fame. But I think that people are still social animals. If you become too anti-social, you will have a bad time.
Lu Zhou nodded thoughtfully and asked, Dean Qin, what are you trying to say?
Nothing, Im just having a conversation, said Dean Qin. He smiled and asked, Oh yeah, arent you interested in the schools reward?
Lu Zhou said, Can You disclose this to me in advance?
Its not like its a bad thing. Why cant I disclose it to you? said Dean Qin. He smiled and said, If you want to hear it, Ill tell you.
Dean Qin paused for a second before he continued to speak.
First is the registered residence problem. The citys staff will help you solve that. The city council suggested for you to move your registered residence from Jiangling to Jin Ling. Then you can enjoy preferential treatment policies. The bank wont need to check your credit before you apply for a line and your interest rates will be low. I dont know exactly how low, but its low!
You might be more interested in the second point, said Dean Qin as he looked at Lu Zhou, who was listening closely. He smiled and said, Yesterday, our principal called us to a meeting to discuss your thesis. According to previous SCI publication rules, the impact factor is used as a measurement for the reward. However, the impact factor doesnt accurately measure the academic value of your thesis.
Therefore, we did some research and decided to award you a million yuan!
Dean Qin emphasized on the words million yuan.
It was like a wind blew past.
That gust of wind blew into Lu Zhous ear and he stopped breathing for a second.
Lu Zhou gulped and he swore he could hear his own heartbeat.
Yeah, is it too low? asked Dean Qin. He smiled and continued to say, Its pretty low. Compared to that Sitapan conjecture, your Zhous conjecture contributed way more to our countrys mathematics industry. However, I hope that you can understand that the one million yuan reward was the maximum amount the principal was willing to give.
Even though the University of Jin Ling was wealthy with the state providing them with the university funds, but this money could not be spent recklessly.
Actually, Dean Qin did not tell him the complete story. The million yuan reward was not decided by Principal Xu himself. They had a meeting and then they asked the director of the Ministry Of Education who gave them the green light.
From which account the money came from, how the money was going to be paid, this all had to be planned out.
No, its not low at all!
Lu Zhou was so excited that his shoulders began to shake.
A million yuan!
It was equivalent to hundreds of months of tutoring!
He had only seen this amount of money in movies
When Dean Qin saw Lu Zhous excitement, he smiled in his heart. The dean knew that Lu Zhou would be ecstatic.
He paused for a second and smiled before he said, Okay then, Ive told you this in advance. Were at the library now. Go ahead and study.
Lu Zhou smiled and said, Thank you, Dean Qin. See you later!
Go go go.
After Lu Zhou separated from Dean Qin, he still had not recovered from the news of one million yuan.
He felt dizzy, like he was floating in the sky.
He was still worried about getting five million for the mission when he did not know that the school already helped him with 20% of the mission
Not far away, Chen Yushan held a stack of books and walked toward the library entrance.
When she saw a familiar figure standing in front of the library, Chen Yushans eyes lit up and she walked forward to tap Lu Zhous shoulder.
Lu Zhou, did you know that youre on fire?
Lu Zhou turned around and when he saw Chen Yushan, he was still shocked by the news. He said, I know.
Chen Yushan opened her mouth and was disappointed, Oh You already knew.
Chen Yushan was confused, What is a million?
Nothing, murmured Lu Zhou as he finally recovered and shook his head. He said, Youve bought me so much food, Ive got to pay you back Ill buy you dinner.
Really? said Chen Yushan as her eyes lit up. However, she then had a suspicious expression as she asked, Wait, why are you so generous? This isnt like you.
Are you eating or not?
Im eating! Chen Yushan nodded immediately. She quickly remembered the tragic experience from last time and said, Can we not eat spicy hotpot? I nearly died last time
When Lu Zhou saw her expression, he nearly laughed out loud.
Its just spicy hotpot, why are you so scared?
