Confucius Institute

Summer Camp to China

As part of its mission to promote a greater understanding of Chinese culture, language, education, and society, the AUM Confucius Institute offered AUM students an opportunity to travel to China. Participants had an opportunity to visit three Chinese cities in fifteen days, including Beijing, Wuhan, and Yichang. During the trip students not only saw historic sites and gorgeous scenery, but also experienced both the traditional and modern culture of China.
