Purdue Hosts Students from Chinese Partner Universities

A group of students from four of China's top universities arrived Sunday (13 July) at Purdue University in West Lafayette to learn about American life and culture as part of an experimental summer program, reports the Purdue news bureau.

The 26 students are from four of Purdue's top Chinese partner institutions -- Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Ningbo University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Riall W. Nolan, associate provost and dean of international programs, is overseeing the program, which is being offered for the first time.

The three-week program ending 2 August will cover a wide variety of topics, including the economic system, politics, legal system, recreational activities, health care, industry, education, religion, agriculture, popular culture, mass communication, fine arts, family life, food and nonprofit organizations.
