CGE DELEGATES IN CHINA
Students
XI'AN | CGE delegates visited four high schools in Xi'an, China. Two of the schools are international schools with many expatriate students who plan to attend university overseas. The first visit was to Xian' International School where Principal, Melissa Engman, afforded CGE the opportunity to speak with Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. During the visit, Becky Van Stavern, Southwest Baptist University, and Dr. Lisa Seeley, East Texas Baptist University, shared about their Ameristudy programs and David Bishop shared how to access the information for the other 16 participating AmeriStudy campus profiles on the website. 
The Chinese high schools offer great potential as each has students studying in English who are preparing for overseas study after HS graduation. At Jin Yuan International School, CGE delegates were amazed at the facility and the student-centered program for High School and the richness of potential for cooperation and recruiting. 

Ding Wina (Jessica), the Vice Director of the School, explained their values and goals and the support given for students, teachers, and parents. Additionally in Xi'an, CGE visited our Silk Road partners and their home base at Eurasia University. CGE Delegates met with the Dean of their international program and discussed ways that our CGE students could study at Eurasia, an American - style China private university campus. There is also an opportunity for CGE students to visit the four high schools in Xi'an to continue recruiting students for their home campuses in the USA.
