Visit China!

Silk Road to China Trip

Since 2001, UCLA has been part of the Silk Road to the Future, a project which brings hundreds of American based students, staff and faculty to China to interact with their counterparts from Chinese universities.  A nonprofit organization called Legends of China spearheads this project with the hopes of promoting cross-cultural exchange and developing intercultural friendships between universities in the U.S. and China.  Participants of this trip are dubbed “peace ambassadors” as they set off to China to engage in a cultural exchange, participate in leadership programs and ultimately build their global citizenship.  Trip itineraries provide a combination of historic tours and educational outings to sites like ancient temples, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall of China, and offer programs that allow participants to take a glimpse into Chinese culture as they learn how silk fabric, silk rugs, jade artifacts and pearl jewelry are traditionally made.

Students both from China and U.S. are required to create artwork representing peace on silk fabric squares provided by Legends of China.  Silk pieces collected from all trips taking place between 2001 and 2008 were put together to create a magnificent 10,000 meter banner that was on exhibit at 2008 Beijing Olympic Exhibition for the whole world to see.  Since the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the Legends of China Foundation has set a new goal that will stretch the banner beyond China with a new banner-length goal of 40,076 silk pieces.  This new banner will represent the circumference of the earth’s equator — the distance around our globe!

The Legends of China Foundation coordinates this trip to ensure that all participants have a wonderful and unique experience in China.  Trip participants enjoy accommodations at 4-5 star hotels and traditional ten-course meals at fine restaurants on a daily basis.  Comfortable charter buses provide transportation for program participants from busy boulevards in Beijing to the scenic countryside en route to the more rustic provinces of China.

This amazing travel experience will be offered once again to UCLA students, staff, faculty and their family members for Summer 2011.  Do not miss our upcoming information sessions to find out more about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

SAVE the GARDEN!

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

UCLA’s Hannah Carter Japanese Garden,  and a neighboring mansion, are to be put on the auctioning block this coming spring.
Now, we know how that the University could use the expected 15 million for academic services, but the sacrifice: a garden that some
have declared one of the best examples of Japanese gardening. Local residents, UCLA faculty and alumni are opposing the sale. UCLA officials say the upkeep is too steep to keep it going. Counts of the gate from last year only registered, 2000 and really, it has no parking.

Where do you stand?
