My name is John and I study Chinese and International Area Studies at the University o%$#!%lahoma as a non-traditional student. I spent a few years away from school before I decided to return to finish my education. I have two years to finish up my degrees before I embark in a career with the Army. The military likes that I am studying Chinese and sent me to China this summer for two months to relearn the language (I served a mission in Taiwan but forgot much of the language). It was absolutely amazing being with the Chinese people.
