Earlier this month, The Center of Global Studies offered a chance of a lifetime trip to china. The trip allowed students to tour around and stay with a host family while going to school with the children within that family. Multiple students took up the offer and quickly adapted to their way of life and loved it. One of these students, Tess Jordan (‘20) described her trip with the ups and downs.
“Something that's always a little difficult about going to a completely different country is adapting to their environment and way of life, however some things were a little hard at first. “It was especially hard to adapt when staying with the host family because you are much more involved there, then walking around with a group”. She explains how being without friends and being with the total strangers was a little strange at first but eventually everything turned out good.
Some of the things that came into play with this trip was cost. Jordan mentioned how she was surprised on how affordable it was. “It was only $2500 which is pretty cheap considering we went for two weeks and did lots of different things.” Some of those things include touring around different parts of China, eating amazing food, and seeing what the schools in China are like.
“I got an enriching experience from observing the culture and lifestyle there”. All the girls that were privileged enough to go on the trip were extremely satisfied with the outcome that they got to be apart of. And thanks to Brien Mcmahon there are so many other opportunities to be apart of and go to.
