Greetings from Carol

It was great to join your class this morning and to hear your thoughts on the topic of The Environment. It's always rewarding to listen to good minds at work - cording first impressions, reflecting on situations, listening to others' thoughts, rethinking one's own ideas...It's a very exciting process. Hope the field trip to the wetlands was valuable.

I am certainly looking forward to our time together on Thursday, July 22 from 9:00 to noon. Our discussion is about Immigration and Diversity. I know you are very busy, but here is what I would like you to do before our class:
1. Before coming to the U.S., what was your mental picture of the typical American? What is the source of that image? movies, news, Internet, blogs, meeting Americans in China...??

2. Now that you've been in the U.S. for a week, has that mental picture of the typical American changed? In what way?

3. Think about all the Americans you've met so far during the WUSIEP, 2010. In what ways are they alike? In what ways are they different?

Anybody here ~~?

Wow , one year already . Don't know if anyone would be still around here ,but I want to come back here and pick up some old memories . We had dinner with Rick and Alyssa last night . It was so great to see them again. And we do miss you guys who stayed in US for the summer program in OSU. Too bad we can't steal you from the new group ~ ha ~Wish you have a great summer ~ and don't forget us ~

I knew you'd be able to figure something out, so I came back around to check how long it would take. Not long at all, it turns out.
It's been great getting e-mail from all of you since I was forced to leave on that sad day in Princeton. I've been teaching the new class here--it's going well-- and I bought a house. I move into the new house in late September, so that's an exciting new development. Also exciting and new is that Alyssa Francis will be moving here at the end of the month. I think that driving the van for you all was practice for me to drive a moving van for her. I am very lucky to have her to help me with the house--she has excellent taste. The last exciting development is that she and I will go to Spain for a little vacation between her moving here and the new house. Things will be very busy.

Big Mike left for Minnesota yesterday and he'll be in Australia by next Tuesday. We had dinner over at Mrs. Eckhart's house the night before he left--you all met her at the Rock-n-Roll lunch. She made us spicy Chinese cabbage and it made us think of you. We talked for a while about how much fun your visit had been and all the things we learned from our time with you. I think it's safe to say on Mike's behalf, and my own, that we're very grateful to know you all.

I look forward to reading about your further adventures in and out of China. I've noticed that the weather in Wuhan hasn't been very hot--the cool Ohio summer followed you home. Take care and keep in touch.

To send my wish and thankfulness from Morrison Tower-----Jennifer(Yin Ran)

Several days have passed, I met new people in Morrison Tower, experienced many new things at OSU, yet I still miss the days with you all in OSU. When I saw the words everyone said in this blog, I do have the impulse to write something down for all of you. Every exciting and moving footage you created in OSU formed a wonderful film, which always gets into my head when I was alone, which makes me do not feel lonely. I miss the delicious food in Hans family, I miss the special rock and roll, I miss the moving scene at farewell party, and I missed the smiles and tears the members of my group had given to me when they were going to leave. Also I want to express my thankfulness. Thank you Mike, for that you have to arrange my housing when you have too many things to deal with; thank you Rick, for that you praised my initiative and your support. And thank you my lovely teachers, Lily, Ms. Zhang Fang and Dr. Fang Ming, for the special concerns you've given to me. Thank you Hans, Pete, Susie, Pro. Li....everyone who helped me. I also want to give my special wishes to Grace, Sylvia, Tanya, Shirley and Elijah, the days with you guys will always kept in my heart. And also Robert and Leo, see you next semester. Finally, my best wishes to all of the members of Ohio group, wishing you happy all the time.
