Student Life

Branch Activity

In a small group format, students continue to meet with friends and teachers in an intimate setting to discuss a wide range of topics. Through these discussions and activities, students learn how to serve their community better and find the values that will anchor them through college and beyond.


Historical Site Visits 

Utilizing the diverse background of Harbin and the multiple museums and historical sites within the city, students will explore and experience the past to help dream of the future.


Chinese Cultural Experience 

Making traditional Chinese food, learning calligraphy, and trying martial arts are just a few examples of activities planned for our students. Through experiencing Chinese culture in person, students develop a deeper connection to the country that will aid in their learning of the language and further their understanding of China as a nation.


Community Volunteering

Nursing home visits, garage sale for donations, cleaning the streets and WB Foundation are ways for students to continue to nurture their heart for their community.
