Students Comments • Finally, we would like to quote some of their feedbacks about this trip after their returning to home. • Hopefully, those comments will tell you – why they will never forget this trip and China.
“We had the opportunity to see a full range of international businesses and their management styles. We saw everything from the most labor intensive processes like the porcelain factory to almost fully automated businesses like Coca-cola.” “The host students at Shantou University taught me how to be a great host and make people feel more at home. I realized just how many opportunities that I have and I will appreciate them more. I learned how important China is to the global economy and how in the future they will play an even more important role.” (GCSU Student: Clay Vaughn)
< Happy Birthday – Our Dear Clay> • - June 14, 2007. Today is the 21st birthday of our student Clay. In his lifetime, it is the first time that he will spend his birthday – far from home and thousands miles away– in Shantou, China. To celebrate his birthday, our Chinese students, as a group, bought him a big birthday cake with their best wishes. So, I wrote this English poem for everyone here today.
Happy birthday, our handsome Clay! Best wishes from all of your Chinese friends with this delivery. “We wish you happy and lucky in your birthday, and everything will be going your way.”
You came to this world 21 years ago today, Growing up with everything for you ready. Everyone around you likes to say, “You are a quiet boy – handsome and great.”
Thanking you for coming to China, our great country. Bring in your interest, friendship, smile, and fantasy. Wish you enjoy every minute during your stay, Hope you will like what you hear and what you see.
We know – there will be more challenges on your way. We wish you happy and success every step of the way. Never forget your Chinese friends here in the room today, Remember they like you and will miss you someday.
For your birthday, finally we all want to say: “Happy, Happy, Birthday! Our Handsome Clay” -- Your Professor Yang, written in Shantou, China, June 14, 2007.
“I really enjoyed my Stay in China and wish I could have had the opportunity to explore more. There is so much about China the rest of the world has no idea how much it is worth discovering. It is a life altering experience.”(KSU Students: Berthony Beauge)
This trip provided a broad prospective of China’s economy. We were exposed to a wide range of businesses on different levels of scale. Being able to see two sides of China’s economy provided a better understanding of the development of its economy. By being able to interact with the managers, we were able to see how they form good relationships through buying us dinner and being personable.(UGA Student: Grady Kendrick)
“My trip to China was overall a very good opportunity to compare American style learning and managing to Chinese style. It was not odd for me to find students taking over 50% more classes than the typical college undergraduate in the U.S. Also, because of the intense competition, I found usually under more pressure to do well in school and from what I observed, did not spend nearly as much time as U.S. students partying. This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Take time to explore, learn, and trying to take full advantage of your experience.” (UGS Student: Steven Out)
