Chinese Nursing Contingent Enjoying GCU, Arizona

February 08, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

After a 16-member contingent from GCU spent an 18-day nursing exchange in China last July, the College of Nursing returned the favor by welcoming a 22-member student and faculty contingent from Changchun, China, for a two-week stay. “We have been blessed this week with our colleagues from China,” said Dean Anne McNamara in an introduction at Monday afternoon’s faculty lecture. The contingent spent last week in Phoenix getting acclimated to the time change and life at GCU: living in the residence halls, taking a campus tour, attending Chapel and the Gathering, and even dressing in togas to attend last Thursday night’s “Mr. GCU” student event in the North Gym.

Punter represented GCU’s men’s soccer and his teammates returned the favor with rowdy support through the pageant’s various competitions. In the end, the judges’ clear choice was the humble Brit. “I’m ecstatic,” said Punter. “I am proud to live up to the queen’s expectations. I hope to connect with her this year so we can compare crowns.”

February 07, 2012 / by / 0 Comment
