Dynamic Learning Community : Eller Undergraduates Study in China
By Liz Warren-Pederson
This summer, 50 Eller business management and marketing majors took their first-semester cohort classes in Nanjing, China.
The accelerated program resulted in 15 credits in seven short weeks, but the intangible benefits of the experience proved immeasurable.
“The opportunity to live in China while completing my first semester cohort in Eller was something I just could not pass up,” says Megan Shekleton (BSBA Marketing ’11), who also traveled to India on an Eller-led trip two years ago. “Traveling and experiencing different cultures and parts of the world is my biggest passion.”
Shekleton cites the group’s visit to the Great Wall as a highlight, but also recalls wading though puddles on the way to class after a massive monsoon storm and finding solidarity with classmates as they celebrated the Fourth of July together.
