One of our best and brightest alums, Anthony Sirianni (May 2015), writes from Beijing, China, about his experience in the graduate program (Environmental Science) at Beijing Normal University: “China has been a nonstop learning experience inside and outside the classroom. I now understand why a global community perspective was emphasized during undergraduate courses, such as Comparative Politics. My current classmates hail from 90 plus different countries, but our nationalities are the only difference among us. We are affected by the same issues, share common values, and even grew up on similar childhood stories. This opportunity has completely changed my interpretation of global issues and the strategies to remedy them.”
