Why did you choose to attend the Center?
The Hopkins-Nanjing program provided the perfect combination of language and cultural immersion, along with a top-notch MA program.
How would you sum up your experience at the Center?
Going to the Center was definitely one of the best decisions of my life. I received a quality education with reputable professors - but this is only half of it. The other half is the unique opportunity the Center provides to meet and study with brilliant students from around the world. The student body is eclectic and diverse; we learn so much from each other simply through our daily interactions. But we are also all drawn together by the same interest in studying and improving U.S.-China relations. It is nice to be surrounded by classmates who also recognize the importance of the U.S.-China relationship and who feel as passionately about the topic as I do!
