Mary Morgan Green, junior international business major with minors in Chinese and dance, received a Critical Language Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State under its program to help students master critical foreign languages. Green will be studying in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, China where she will attend Shaanxi Normal University and live in international dorms. She will participate in a group-based language and cultural immersion program and have two meetings a week with a language partner.
“This past spring break I returned with Show Hope (a local non-profit) to Luoyang, China to serve at a special care facility,” said Green. “ While I was there, I was thrilled to receive the news that I would be able to return to China this summer to study the Chinese language. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to expand my knowledge of Chinese this summer for eight full weeks at Shaanxi Normal University. To God be the Glory.”
