By 1880, there were nine Chinese students registered at MIT, including Cheong Mong Cham (Class of 1883), Kwong Yung Chung (Class of 1883), and seven more CEM students who joined the Class of 1884: Fong Pah Liang; Kwong Hein Chow; Kwong King Yang; Sik Yau Foke; Sung Mun Wai; Tyng Se Chung; and Yang Seu Nam. These newly matriculated students attended MIT for a single academic year, 1880-81, before the recall of the CEM.[1]
