Joe Lipsey III GIEU Reflection 9 As soon as I stepped foot in my host family’s home I began to think about their customs and values. Before I arrived in China, however, I thought about the culture of the culture as a whole and how I would adapt to it and feel about it. Walking through the house made me think about my own home and where I live on campus at school. What would my room look like? What would the bathroom look like, what kind of food would we eat for breakfast? Does my host family know much about western culture? All of these questions and more ran through my mind and they all began to be answered quickly and we took a tour around the house. During the two weeks I stayed with my host family I started to notice differences and similarities between myself and my host brother and ultimately his culture. For example clothes are not as big of a necessity there as it is in America. When I say this what I mean is there is not much emphasis or importance placed on having new clothes.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
