Fake Stuff – updated

Nicky Coutinho, veteran of the 2012 program, recently updated the video that he and Shanel Tage did on the knockoff market in China.

It’s good to see the continuing impact of their experiences in the Davidson in China program continue on in their academic career.

bohannan-Wanderlust_2013-1The sound of a sewing machine rumbling reminds me of my mother. My mother, Ivy, works as tailor in a local boutique in Durham, NC. As a child, I could usually find my mother in her sewing room working on her clients’ clothes or a sewing project for fun. Many of the garments my sister and I wore growing up were custom made by my mom. My mother sewed us many things, including, smoking dresses, bedspreads, and Halloween costumes. She would often bring my sister and me along to shop for buttons, zippers, and thread. While walking through the fabric store, my hands would move across the endless rows of fabric rolls; cotton, fleece, polyester, leather, silk and satin.

2012 Program – From the students

Visiting Xi'an

Davidson in Shanghai was a great opportunity to spend a semester at one of the best universities in China, while still getting to work with Davidson students and a Davidson professor. One of the best things about Davidson in Shanghai is the diverse range of opportunities to travel and meet people it offered, without having to worry about getting credits transferred. Having a Davidson professor on hand to guide the experience and introduce us to a lot of interesting people was really helpful as well.

The Davidson in Shanghai program was a great experience! We had the opportunity to see many cities in China and Taiwan and to get to know students at Fudan and members of the community. It is a trip you won’t want to miss!

Davidson in Shanghai was the one of the best experiences I have had in my college career. It was an eye-opening, and liberating experience. If I could go again, I definitely would!
