Alice McAvoy was a student at Saint Anselm College when she first traveled to China in 2009 with EF College Study Tours. Her professor, Dr. Tom Fitzpatrick, led his “Business in China” program every year for students across schools and disciplines. Alice was studying Mandarin and earning her B.A. in Business when she signed up.
While abroad, she met with alumni who had traveled to China with Dr. Fitzpatrick in the past. These same ex-pats later helped her land an ESL job in Shanghai after graduating in 2010. Check out Saint Anselm’s video on Alice’s experience in Shanghai with footage from her classroom, her neighborhood in Shanghai and thoughts about her experience living abroad.
