A student's perspective

Having the first year in China was really helpful. Our professors were from all over the world, including the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland. They taught us about what kinds of challenges we might encounter as students at an American university. Before arriving in the United States, I knew what to expect and that really helped to prepare me.
