Experiencing China

China 4

"Living in China changed my perspective on life."

"Living in China changed my perspective on life and the way I live in the United States. On my first visit to China, I stayed in Hangzhou for nearly 10 months, and learned more than I ever anticipated about medicine, culture, the language and myself. After returning to the United States to complete my pharmacy degree, my enthusiasm for learning and sharing what I had learned abroad radiated from within me. I quickly became homesick for China and the wonderful friends I made there, and just one year after the date of my first departure from Hangzhou, I returned to China for the summer to continue my research on Chinese herbal medicine."

- Ashley Anderson, Butler Class of 2000 majoring in anthropology and in pharmacy, who wrote her senior thesis on traditional Chinese medicinal practices.
