Summer 2012 Participant
The true version of what China really is. Prior to the study abroad, I assumed that China was more or less a dictatorial state. Instead of this, I found the people to be extremely warm and there wasn't a hint of oppression. In fact, you will see more armed security guards and military personnel in the U.S. Nor was there communist propaganda on billboards throughout the country.

China is a topic that comes up repeatedly in class but this does not compare to experiencing it first hand. It was very interesting to hear the thoughts and opinions of Chinese businessmen and professors as they present issues we discussed in class but from entirely different perspectives.

Denise Prisca Fernandes, Summer 2012 Participant
There is an ocean of cultures out there in the world that we have yet to experience in terms of customs, traditions and even businesses for that matter. Opportunities are not only confined to one country. It is also important to be aware of one's own culture before venturing out to experience other cultures. Understanding and respecting a culture plays a big role in knowing how and why things are the way they are in the country.
