USA President Dr. Tony G. Waldrop continued the University of South Alabama’s successful relationship with Fuzhou University Zhicheng College in China on Monday, Aug. 11, during a meeting on the USA campus with President Zuping Zhu and a delegation of Chinese educators.

 Waldrop and Zhu exchanged gifts – an ornate scroll containing a Chinese parable written in calligraphy for USA and a piece of art glass from USA’s distinguished glass blowing studio for the Chinese visitors – in honor of their meeting. It was Zhu’s first visit to USA and Waldrop’s first meeting with visiting educators from Fuzhou University Zhicheng College since he was appointed USA President in February.

The 10-member group arrived in Mobile on Aug. 8 to learn more about USA and the local area. Their stay has included faculty meetings, classroom time and visits to local restaurants and shopping areas in Mobile and Fairhope.

 Representatives of USA and Fuzhou University Zhicheng College signed a cooperative agreement to further study abroad programs in 2012 during a visit to China by USA administrators and faculty members.
