Southern students headed to China for summer study

Southern University students, all majoring in a STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) course of study, will embark on a four-week trip to Guiyang, China this summer, paid by the National Science Foundation.

 

The 10 students will be studying at Guizhou University as part of an effort to increase student and faculty engagement between the two schools and to establish a dual degree program.

The Southern students heading to China are: seniors Adrian Burkhalter, Krystal Finley and Donavon Walker; sophomores Clifton Blouin, Anjelica Pierson and Jeremy Williams; and freshmen Melvin Givens, Shannon Jones-Butts, Brianna Precciely and Nicholas Sargent-Johnson.

Students will participate in cultural activities and participate in sustainable science field experiences including an ecosystem study at Huangguoshu PuBu Waterfall and Tianxing Qiao Natural Park.
