There are so many moments I wish I could relive during my study abroad in Beijing, China. The SU Abroad Beijing staff really wants you to have an incredible experience. They will work with you to make sure your needs are met. The SU Beijing Center is located at Tsinghua University, which is where you will be taking your courses with experienced professors. Classes will never be boring because it is a mix of discussion and field trips to historical and cultural landmarks around Beijing (The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, 798 Art District). Getting around is pretty easy--from your dorm all the way to the Chinese language center, you can practically bike all over campus! The cafeteria food is cheap and delicious! If you're feeling homesick, simply bike (8 minutes) or walk (15 minutes) to the neighborhood center, Wudaokou, for some Western cuisine!
What sets the SU Abroad Beijing program apart from others is its two-week signature seminar. When you first start the program, you will have 2-weeks to dive deeper into China's history and understand the perspective of locals who are trying to improve some of the country's issues. When I was abroad (Fall 2014), we had visits to environmental NGOs and had visits to ethnic-minority villages. You'll learn a lot about China by the time the program ends, and I guarantee you'll have so much to share after your return!
