Alec Wreford Summer 2013 Cultural Exchange, Chongqing Technology and Business University  Major: History
My international experience was a 2 week cultural exchange to Chongqing, China, to our partner university CTBU (Chongqing Technology and Business University). This was my first time travelling alone abroad, and to the world's fastest growing city no less, but the welcome I received at CTBU and in Chongqing in general made me feel right at home and inspired me to ensure I go back for a longer exchange next year. My main area of interest is Chinese history and culture, I am currently taking Mandarin at UW which is a fun yet challenging endeavor. The best thing about an exchange in China is absolutely the food, however the incredibly friendly people are what make me want to come back. In China, you are quite noticeably an outsider, which can be daunting for some. However, with the right attitude you can embrace the cultural immersion and discover perspectives you had never been previously aware of while having the adventure of a lifetime.
