I really enjoyed the pre-departure orientation this morning, it was extremely informative! I shared the information with my Mom and she is feeling a lot more comfortable with me going on my study abroad program.”
Beijing was incredible!!! [We] hiked one of the toughest, most dangerous parts of the Great Wall for eight hours straight! We want to take a weekend trip to Yellow Mountain for another hike; we called ourselves the HARDCORE HIKERS! One night in Beijing, we all went out cycling through the city and we called ourselves the BIKERS OF BEIJING! I love the guys here, they are so great. It's never boring with them!

Looking back on my first week here in Shanghai just makes me that much more excited to experience the next four months - it has been an incredible experience already! The food is great, the Chinese students are great, and I absolutely love the city. [Visiting Zhujiajiao] was a fantastic experience, getting to see the history and culture of China up close and experience it first-hand.
