Global scholars

What a day this was! Our day was full of many activities including playing soccer and eating pizza to name a few. However, what stood out to me was our tour of Tsinghua University’s Schwarzman College. It is an incredibly prestigious college, and being a Schwarzman scholar is similar to being a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University. Schwarzman College was named after Stephen A. Schwarzman, an American billionaire who through his generous donation hoped to bond China and the United States through education. Since they draw students from all over the world, Schwarzman College hopes that in future international negotiations, there will be multiple Schwarzman scholars present.
