My name is Katie Springthorpe and I am a rising junior majoring in biology and chemistry at Salem College in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. If you had asked me before this past summer if I had ever envisioned me traveling to China to do research on bats, I would have said no way, hands down. But, this REU program gave me this fantastic opportunity and I think that it has forever changed my life. I am so glad that I applied to this program and was able to enjoy this wonderful chance to not only experience China, but to live and research there as well. While in China, I lived at Nanjing Forestry University (NFU) located in Nanjing, Jiangsu. I was also able to visit Shanghai, Beijing and Xi’an. This program lasted a total of 7 weeks with 5 of them spent in China.
