“I studied abroad the summer of 2011 in an intensive Chinese language program at Peking University in Beijing, China. Not only did I learn a great deal of Mandarin in my time abroad, but I grew to be a lot more adaptable/quick on my feet after a mishap on a (wrong) subway line. My study abroad experience showed me that I can adapt to tough situations on the fly and that an open-minded mindset can help someone enjoy their experience abroad that much more.” – Dan Loughrey ’12 graduated with a degree in International Studies, minors in East Asian Studies and Anthropology, and a Business Essentials Certification.
