Rachel Go, climbing the Great Wall
Explore the dynamics of China's development through study in The China Studies Institute, the most selective in China. This program is hosted at Peking University. Peking University (Beida) has maintained its position as the intellectual leader for the country, rated as the 15th best university in the world, according to London Times. Amidst a rich tradition, students interact with Chinese students. The Nameless Lake, the Pagoda, and the traditional style buildings only enhance what is already a superb learning environment.
Vist the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, a typical factory to observe manufacturing in China, learn about peasant life in China and much more! With their extensive trips and internships, this program in Beijing provides wonderful opportunities that take students to different places, different cultures and different people beyond the confines of the classroom.
Credits taken on this program may apply towards a Chinese Studies or Asian Studies Minor. Contact Professor Chris Keaveney for further details: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-883-2584.

Housing: Students stay in campus dorms.
These past three months have been a learning experience. I have made friends that come from all around the United States and friends that have grown up here in China. Today was the day that I had to say goodbye to my Chinese friends. Time here in China has gone so fast and I cannot believe that in two weeks I will be on my way back to America. The next two weeks will be full of adventure and sleeping on trains! We will be visiting place after place, riding train after train, and taking picture after picture. I will miss Beijing, but I am excited to venture outside of Beijing and experience something different: different places, different people, and different food. I am excited to create the last batch of memories that I will have while studying abroad. The best decision that I have made while attending Linfield was to study abroad.
