Yes; I spent two summers in Qingdao studying at Qingdao University, and I recently spent a summer in Hangzhou completing an internship. My most memorable experience in China was watching beach volleyball and men's gymnastics at the Beijing Olympics!

I plan to attend graduate school to further my study of chemical engineering.
