Rowan is at Glassboro, New Jersey which is not, in all fairness, the center of the known universe.
Eight students from SIAS in Henan Province, China, are the first students from their college to be accepted as students at Rowan.
The students are enjoying the American experience and the differences between the two cultures.
Xue Dan Wang, one of the MBA students currently enrolled said, ‘One difference I’ve noticed between America and China is that in China when we have a party, we go to a restaurant and sing karaoke, but in America they sit around, drink beer, play a game called beer pong and play poker.’
MBA student Peng Xu said, ‘When we went to Washington D.C., one thing I was surprised about is that the museums are free. In China, you have to pay for everything.’
One of the more obvious differences is the language. MBA student Kun Chang said, ‘It’s very hard to adjust to the language. They’re so different and it’s easy to get confused.’
