The purpose of this blog will be to chronicle my experiences while studying abroad in China this spring semester of 2015. I am going to be studying at UDCI, University of Dayton China Institute, in Suzhou, China, which is about 75 miles west of Shanghai. I am part of the first group to spend the whole semester in China. The proceeding groups spent part of the semester there and another part at Chaminade University in Hawaii. They worked out the big kinks in the system, but it's our job to work out the rest of the minor details. We'll have several weekend excursions to other parts of China outside Suzhou, and will spend the last several days of the semester in Beijing. I hope you enjoy reading about all of it as much as I'll enjoy doing it!
