Semester in Shanghai: Week 1

Authored By:

Hello everyone! My name is Megan Lentz and I am a student videographer studying abroad in Shanghai, China for the fall semester of 2019! My home university is the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota and I am in CIEE’s Business, Language, and Culture program. I will be documenting my experience abroad in a series of vlogs that highlights my week by week activities, so I hope you enjoy them! 

Week 1 was definitely an eventful one. My flight to Shanghai was delayed so I arrived in Shanghai around midnight. After navigating the taxi system on night one, I got settled into my cozy dorm at East China Normal University. Later in the week I was able to explore the Bund, a market one of my friends is interning at, the huge mall next to campus, and meet a lot of really cool people that I will be sharing this experience with. I am most looking forward to trying more Chinese food and seeing all the must-see sights in Shanghai. To watch my Semester in Shanghai: Week 1 vlog click the link below.
