Over the years, a fairly large number of Valparaiso University students have graduated with degrees in Chinese and Japanese Studies or other directly related fields. We have asked some of them to reflect on their experiences at Valpo. We hope that you will enjoy their stories and may find inspiration in what they had gone through and how they reflect on themselves.

We thank all the alumni who contribute to this page. If you want to write about yourself or have questions, please contact Professor Zhimin Lin (email: or phone: (219) 464-5749).
