Here is where I’ve met my closest friends here at Drew. We have had some fun cultural trips to Chinatown, out apple picking, and to the beach as well as hosted events for Dia de Muertos, the Moon Festival, and the Lunar New Year. We also have monthly meetings where we have conversations about understanding individuals and situations through different cultural lenses. Being a Chinese Studies Major, I am particularly interested in learning Chinese culture. Living in this living learning community has allowed me to interact with international students from China who are able to provide me with their personal narratives of what Chinese culture means to them. It’s also exciting to teach international students about American cultural practices.”
