On top of the Great Wall of China, exhausted from annihilating altitude and steep stairways, a small group of clubbers gathered together to sing "The Yellow and Blue." Sunshine beaming and a light breeze blowing, the chords echoed throughout the surrounding mountainside as twenty-or-so young men sang the alma mater.
Tour was a smashing success again this year. From concerts to Tiananmen Square, everybody had a fantastic time in the Orient. Auditoriums were abuzz, brimming with excitement at the sounds of Gao Shan Qing and the Motown Medley. Photos were snapped of everything from the Imperial Palace to the Terracotta Warriors.
Thank you again to everyone who made this memorable experience possible. Big snaps go out to Dr. Rogers, Arian Khaefi, and David Gilliland for fearlessly guiding us on stage, as well as Zhongjie Shi and Bibo Wang for fearlessly guiding us on the streets of China. Most importantly, thank you to all of you -- parents, donors, alumni and otherwise -- who helped make this tour possible. It has been a privilege and an honor to serve you.
