2009 - NEU Students and Faculty Member Visit CAC

During this Fall Semester of 2009, a visiting faculty, Professor Ban Yonggang (Edward), and two students, Liu Xianghang and Chang Yuqing, traveled from Northeastern University in Shenyang, China, to Central Arizona College.  While at CAC Professor Ban taught English writing classes and a Chinese culture course, and Yuqing (Emma) and Xianghang (Cherry) studied a variety of subjects.  Enriched by their experiences at CAC, the students and professor returned to Northeastern University in January of 2010.  The student/faculty exchange is part of an ongoing cooperative program between both schools.  The following photos are of some of their experiences.
