College admissions representatives from University of Chicago and Vanderbilt University came together at the Center in Beijing in early May to deliver an information session for prospective undergraduate students and their families. The session included a brief overview of each institution and information about the admissions process. After the main presentation, prospective students had the chance to speak with both admissions officers and with current UChicago students from the Spring Social Sciences Study Abroad program at the Center. This information session was the second in a multi-institution series hosted by the UChicago Center in Beijing.
Ian Solomon, the University of Chicago Vice President for Global Engagement, made brief remarks encouraging the gathered high school students to pursue education abroad and to step up and become global leaders in the future. Solomon was visiting Beijing to continue building partnerships between UChicago and Chinese universities.
