The historical site in China is a popular attraction and a Concordia delegation recently had a chance to visit.
Bram Freedman, vice president of Advancement and External Relations, Graham Carr, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, and Leisha LeCouvie, senior director of Alumni Relations, enjoyed a personal tour of the army, given by Deng. Freedman, Carr and LeCouvie were in China from June 19 to June 25, 2018, for alumni reunions events in Hong Kong, Beijing, Xi’An and Shanghai.
Deng has fond memories and remains grateful for the education he received at Concordia, where he studied in the Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate program.
“Concordia gave me a lot. The university really helped me because not only do you learn about the technical things but also the philosophy of the school,” he says. “They teach knowledge. They teach us about the reality of the world, and not only what’s in the books.”
