MPC works with Bluffton University to provide a cross-cultural semester experience for Chinese university students. Bluffton provides opportunity for students to take classes together with American and other international students and to be active in many clubs and activities on campus. For English major students from Chinese universities, this provides a rich opportunity to study first-hand the language and culture of their major, as well as building confidence and skill.
This is the first time fthat I took part in in Icon. International Connection (ICon) is a gathering of friends from around the world. In this picture, except for the 2 students from China, there are also students from Ghana and Bolivia. For us, it is a good place to make friends with students from all over the world and also a place to let us know more about the world. I like the advisor, Louise Matthews, she cares about us a lot. I enjoy the feeling of friends sitting down and talking about different life experience. Last weekend, we went to Louise's home for dinner, we even cooked some Chinese food for friends to eat.
