This was a great experience. I've learned so much about Chinese culture, what it's really like and what the people are really like.

About

Since 1990, VU has set up a study center at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. Each fall, a VU professor or a professor from members of the Lutheran College China Consortium will serve as resident director and lead a group of undergraduate students to study at ZU for a semester. So far, a total of 147 students have participated in the program. While in Hangzhou, students take up to 10 credits in Chinese at a level compatible to their language skills, a required course on Chinese culture and civilization taught by the resident director and have option to take a topic class offered by the resident director, a research project with a professor back on campus or complete an internship at a local institution. The group normally travels to two “must-sees” in China, Beijing, the current capital, and Xi’an, the ancient capital of China. In addition, students will have plenty of opportunities to travel on their own or with the group.
