Kaz Koehring


Hi there, my name is Kaz Koehring. I am a Junior at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN. I grew up on the big island of Hawaii and was exposed to different cultures at a young age. I believe that experience has always made me have a desire to learn from and and stay interested in other cultures; and that is why I've started to learn Chinese. In school, I am studying Rhetoric, Chinese, and Economics, but am also very involved on campus. While singing in the Glee Club, I am also the president of the Rugby Club, president of Students for Sustainability, and involved with the Chinese Club and my fraternity. I work on campus as a tutor for the Rhetoric department and as a student recruiter in the admissions office.

I believe that life is about the experiences and relationships that we share with other people.  Studying abroad in Shanghai this semester will augment these relationships and experiences even more so and will allow me the opportunity to be even more critical of my own world views. I hope to learn, change, and grow as an individual during my time abroad and appreciate you reading along.

Opportunities to Learn and Motivation for the Future

The semester is over. After a 26 Sociology page capstone project, 2 Final papers, a documentary, and our final Chinese language test I am now suddenly in the airport waiting to head back home. The feeling is surreal.

One of my main concerns before coming to China was the accessibility to exercising.
