I was in the Volleyball and badminton team when I was in high school. Again, your case is particular. Not EVERY school in China has a band. My high school was classified as Provincial Level 1 school but we don't have a band, and we don't have a badminton team.
If they just come here for university, they will so different than people who grew up here. In UW, Canadian Born Chinese generally are doing so much better overall in job hurting, studying, partying while a lot of Chinese from main land China only know STUDY and don't know LIFE is not just STUDY.
