Throwback Thursday: The Hopkins-Nanjing Center Outside of Nanjing

The Hopkins-Nanjing Center has operated continuously since 1986, primarily on the downtown campus of Nanjing University.  What many applicants may not realize is that students, faculty, and staff from the 2003-2004 academic year spent the fall semester in a different location.  Any guesses where?

The Answer: Hawaii!  Due to precautions taken because of SARS, the HNC community spent the fall 2003 semester in Hawaii.  They then returned to Nanjing for the spring semester.
