    Transcription

    This interview is with a group of Chinese students who came to Bryn Mawr College to study linguistics, biology, and literature. These students discuss everything from their first knowledge about Bryn Mawr, to their dorm life experiences, to the advice they were given about what to bring to the United States as well as their own personal development and achievements. The scholars emphasize the importance of the Bryn Mawr College support system that encouraged and advised them along the way, a much appreciated aspect of Bryn Mawr’s community. The end of the interview involves a discussion amongst the scholars and the interviewer about the differences between the United States and the People’s Republic of China, emphasizing the differences and similarities that might come up in conversation for future generations of Chinese scholars.
