An outdoor adventure to the Great Wall, the unbeaten path, is a highlighted part of the 2013 Georgia Tech (GT) China Summer Program (CSP). The trip lasted 3 days and included camping, village cultural immersion, fast descending along a dam wall, hiking along sections of the Great Wall, and ferrying across a lake on a bamboo raft to be made by themselves. Four TU volunteers participated in the trip and challenged themselves in nature together with GT students.
The 6th International Culture Festival of TU and the Opening Ceremony of 2013 International Summer School at TU took place on May 25. Hundreds of TU’s international students, who represent nearly 100 countries and regions with different cultures, gathered and displayed their native attributes through dozens of booths with pictures, delicious international foods, and artistic handcrafts.
During the 2013 Georgia Tech (GT) China Summer Program (CSP) hosted by TU, 7 lecture based courses are offered by GT faculty members, including Accounting, Statics, Circuits and Electronics, Traditional Asian Culture, Science, Technology & Modernism, Statistics & Applications, and Introduction to Modern Physics. Each course accomodates 10 TU undergraduates to the classroom, providing valuable opportunities for TU students to be immersed in American style classes.
Following the opening of the 2013 China Summer Program (CSP), over 50 students and faculty members from Georgia Tech commenced living and studying at TU, in Tianjin, and China. On May 24, accompanied by TU student volunteers, CSP participants toured the TEDA Planning & Exhibition Center, visited the Instant Noodles Impression Gallery, strolled through the Tianjin Italian Style Street, and cruised along the Haihe River.
