China Seminar 2011 returned on June 15 after an intensive 19-day study tour. Gordon students led by Prof. Stephen Smith, along with students and faculty from Biola and Westmont, traveled more than 2,000 miles within China from Beijing through Taiyuan, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Xiamen and Shanghai. They visited—and interacted with leaders at—businesses and factories, universities, churches, and social service agencies. They also visited celebrated sites of Chinese history and culture, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Tienanmen Square, and many others.
