Desire to Study Abroad Leads to Graduation Walk in China
Semester in Beijing program leads Denver student to graduation ceremonies at ICB
A desire to learn about—and in—a completely different culture led Nancy Tran from her home in Denver to her graduation walk on the ceremonial stage at International College Beijing, China. Tran had been a student teacher at an international studies school in Denver and her talks with high school students who had studied overseas inspired her to, in her words, “broaden my views and perspective on the world”.

And from the ceiling hang parts of every animal she can imagine—ostrich heads, horse legs, crocodile tails.
