Beijing Review editor visits Asheville, Warren Wilson College

On Thursday, July 6, 2012, Beijing Review ‘s Ms. Wei Huang, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the North American Bureau based in New York City, toured Asheville and, in particular, Warren Wilson College. In his “Learn Chinese Business” blog, Ashevillean Jonathan Poston described the visit:

… Beijing Review is China’s national English news weekly; featuring, in English, world & China news on business, science, technology, health, etc.

Of course, many of the well-known, and heavily promoted tourist destinations were part of the plan, but there were also special efforts made to visit unique locales representing Asheville’s characteristic Appalachia /culinary artisan ethos. …

A particular point of interest was in better understanding how international Chinese students are [handling Warren Wilson College’s] Work/Service learning requirements. (… many large U.S. universities and colleges recruit international students, with China an especially fertile area for recruiters, who pay astounding amounts of tuition to attend American universities, only to spend years on campus all but forgotten about, and utterly homesick.)

At Warren Wilson College, Chinese students work and engage with the campus and greater community just like any other student. …

Learn Chinese Business blog is all about understanding the Chinese business culture.
