Major: Math, Computer Engineering I am currently a second year here at Tech, and I am double majoring in Mathematics and Computer Engineering with a minor in German. I attended the China Summer Program through the generous support of the Dr. Bill George Scholarship, and I had a BLAST. Over the course of the trip, I managed to travel to 7 countries total for very low cost. My favorite part of the trip was when a couple of my friends and I traveled to Yangshuo, China, which is home to a beautiful mountain range as well as gorgeous rivers and scenery.

Major: Computer Science Currently a sophomore, studying Computer Science here at Tech, I had the opportunity to Study Abroad in China, thanks to the Bill George Scholarship, Freeman Asia Scholarship and the China Summer Program. Being able to experience many different countries for ticket prices you won’t believe if I told you was amazing. And being able to eat food acing both in quality and quantity, for prices you won’t believe if I told you was also great!! At least while it lasted, now I have to switch back to US food prices, not great.

Major: Electrical Engineering I had the opportunity to take part in China Summer Program 2019 thanks to the George International Study Abroad Scholarship. All Georgia Tech undergraduate students are eligible for OIE scholarships, so I encourage you to apply if you are even thinking about studying in another country. My favorite part of the program was visiting the renowned Huaqiangbei Electronics Market and haggling with the store owners over all sorts of cool little gadgets. The market had sections for both consumer electronics and hardcore hardware enthusiasts. I roamed around the market for days and found it very easy to get lost in the wonders of its creative, techie and slightly competitive (because of the haggling) atmosphere. There was always something eye catching around the corner.

Major: Computer Engineering I am currently a sophomore majoring in computer engineering. Shenzhen is definitely the place to go as it quickly transitions into China’s version of Silicon Valley. Moreover, I loved the cheap and delicious food and being able to travel every weekend. My roommate on this program even became one of my best friends at Tech! Ask me anything!
