Student receiving Jongha Student Scholarship Foundation

Suffolk has a student studying in Seoul, Korea this summer.  He is Neilson Lam, a business major specializing in management, who is at Yonsei University, one of our partner schools.

Neilson was awarded a scholarship from the Jongha Student Scholarship Foundation, established by the KCC Company, which has been giving scholarships to Suffolk students for the past four years.

In June Neilson arrived in Seoul to begin the summer term and received the scholarship money during a meeting at KCC Company.  Our congratulations to Neilson and our continued thanks to KCC.

Asian Studies graduate Hangzhou adventure!

Monique Costello graduated with a double major in History and Asian Studies. She has been teaching at a high school in Hangzhou that has a very impressive front gate and a pretty campus. Her brief report is here:

I have been working at Tianmu High School for 5 months now – I can’t believe how the time has flown by. I teach over 800 students, most of whom could care less about English but want to know all about the typical lives of Americans. Because I am in a sub-city of Hangzhou (although the sub-city itself has a higher population than Boston), I am the only American girl within an hour of where I live. I am treated like a celebrity everywhere from the hallways of my school, to restaurants, to taxi rides. People are constantly staring. It was disconcerting at first, but I’ve learned to accept it.

I have seen so many beautiful places and tried so many new things since I arrived; this is an experience I would not give up for anything. The people here have been incredibly friendly and I have made some great friends. Spring Festival is upon us and I am meeting my mother in Beijing tomorrow before heading to Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have many more adventures planned for the next five months; I can’t wait to explore even more.
