Flag of China  ,

Carolyn, Ben and I made our first trip to Soochow University today. We met with Tan Yu Kim, the Director of the Overseas Students program. Soochow currently has a thousand foreign students from 36 countries.

Things went well as we discussed the possibility of having Cy-Fair College students come study Chinese language and culture next year. We were impressed with the campus and facilities. The University was started in the early twentieth century by American missionaries. Some of the orginal buildings remain.

Check out some of the photos I have posted.

Great Blog Bobby!

Thanks for the vivid description and the great photos. Reading/seeing China through your eyes is very powerful. I have never considered a visit, but you have won me over in three posts. Keep up the great work.
