Carma Elliot, Cultural and Education Minister of the British Embassy, explained the importance of cultural relations where "if we look at culture at its wider sense around cultural relations, then the people relationships, the opportunities there are for education and the core elements that fit into the culture relations there...and ultimately enjoying the very best of other people's cultures." The staff at the Center are fully prepared to guide the incoming students and faculty on their new journey in China and to experience a new culture to the fullest!
On Wednesday, September 2nd, Orientation Week will begin for the students for which the Center has organized sessions ranging from health and safety tips to how to “Chengdu-nize” their life and fortify cultural relations between the US and China. Whether it is learning how to live as an expat in a foreign country or eating spicy pig brains, we believe that after this semester of cultural immersion our students may forget how to say goodbye in their own language and, just like the local saying goes, “once you come to Chengdu, you will never want to leave!”
Please follow us on WeChat to see what activities and events we will have planned for the upcoming semester; you are more than welcome to join!
