A Hawkeye in Hong Kong

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) accounting exchange program is a new study abroad opportunity beginning the 2012-2013 academic year. This semester-long program provides University of Iowa accounting students the ability to integrate a unique international experience with their academic program.

The first to journey to Hong Kong as part of the new exchange program is senior accounting student Shelley Lowe of Chesterfield, Missouri.

Shelley created a blog entitled, "A Hawkeye in Hong Kong," to document her overseas experience.

Before Shelley left for Hong Kong, she wrote a blog post preparing for her trip.

"I don't speak the language, I don't know anyone, and up until recently I couldn't exactly find Hong Kong on a map. However, I booked my flight, and just kept telling myself, ‘It'll be an adventure; being nervous is all a part of the experience'."
