WHY THE CHENGDU AMERICAN CENTER FOR STUDY ABROAD?
G-MEO has created an English language, US-style learning environment, The Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad. Located in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province in China's Southwest, the Center is the pioneering idea of Global Maximum Educational Opportunities, Inc. Co-founder and Chairman Dr. David Chang. The Chengdu Center works with American University, Concordia University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Nazareth College, and Norwich University as Principal Partners, which offer a range of their courses every semester at the Center, making credits easy to transfer. The prestigious Sichuan University, one of the leading universities in China and the earliest higher education institute in Sichuan, dating back to the Qing Dynasty, is the host institution. The Center is located on the University's beautiful, downtown Huaxi campus, in one of its stately old buildings. You will study with a mix of other Americans and students from Sichuan University.
Dr. Ge Honglin, the Mayor of Chengdu, looks forward to welcoming all American students from member institutions of the Chengdu American Center for Study Abroad (Click here to see a copy of his welcome letter in English).

WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
“Chengdu. OMG, I absolutely loved spending my time here. Before coming to China I was warned by so many people, they told me I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the food, it’s dangerous and other stuff like that but after experiencing China I can say that it is amazing, safe, friendly and the food, I can go on about it. I have made some amazing friends and had some of the most memorable moments here. The locals encouraged me when I tried speaking Chinese and would just laugh in a very friendly manner to make me feel comfortable. For commencement, all of the students who were taking a Chinese class had to perform or do something and guess what I took the basic Chinese class. We had to talk about us using the Chinese we learned but standing on stage and speaking was the most nervous and confident I have ever been. It’s only been four weeks and the amount I have learned and grown cannot be measured. Even if I had the chance to change my decision of going to China I wouldn’t have changed it.“
—Vanshika Reddy, from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
“Being in China didn’t really give me any culture shock because this is my sixth time visiting China. However, this is my first time without any parents/family and it’s a completely different experience. When I’m with my family, I’m towed around from place to place, so I’m not really able to explore, but studying abroad here, especially with a huge group of friends gives me the chance to explore and dive deeper into the Chinese culture and daily life. I definitely don’t regret choosing to spend my only free summer studying abroad, and I’m really happy I chose the Gmeo program because of I have so much time after class to just walk around with my friends and see new things.”
