It’s no secret that the Chinese student population has exploded at Michigan State over the last few years. And with that, there has been some friction, including last fall when some Chinese students’ cars were vandalized with graffiti telling them to “go back home.” 

In an effort to improve cultural understanding in the MSU community, this week a delegation of students, faculty and staff is visiting China's capital city of Beijing to meet with their counterparts at Beijing Normal University.

The MSU Alumni Association's Scott Westerman is one of the leaders of the exchange and reports from China.
