Where should we go next?
October holiday (October 1-7) is an opportunity for our teachers to venture out to all parts of China. This year 11 teachers, 5 children, 2 college students and 1 alumni went out to Qinghai to experience the diverse culture, food, and companies. See Qinghai Trip highlights for whole story! Teaching at #siasuniversity is a great way to see a lot of Asia. Best of all we are preparing our students to be global citizens and be world changers. Learn more at www.academicsinasia.com

Our brave new teacher, Brendan, had some neck pain from traveling all the way from South Africa. So, we went looking for a massage therapist and ended up in the hands of a Tui Na therapist. No massage, just pops and cracks from “pushes and pulls.” #TuiNa #teachabroad

Heather and Stella here--and signing off! It’s been a privilege to connect with you guys through videos, photos and other stories since 2016, but it’s time to welcome in a new social media team. They will bring their own voice to the stories about our unique community, and we are sure you'll be able to rely on them for all of your China information! Keep in touch with us on our personal accounts and see our latest projects adventures there! Lots of love, @had.captured and @stellahyunjin
One of the best sunsets in Xinzheng! As the sun sets over our little town, many teachers are packing their bags to head home. Tomorrow is the Oral English teacher’s leave date, and then the break will officially be here! It’ll be quiet around here for the summer, but we’ll be moving and grooving again when August rolls around. Everyone have a safe and relaxing summer. We’ll see you back next year!
Our last faculty meeting! Saying goodbye to all the teachers who are leaving this year! (It’s actually not a goodbye, we will see you next time!)
Final is here! All of the Sias teachers are busy with preparing the final exams! Can’t find empty seats at the cafe!😉🤓💻
