In our last On Tour post, we were hanging with the Banana Slugs at UC Santa Cruz.
After departing from beautiful Santa Cruz, we headed south on California's famously scenic Highway 1 and rode the coast all the way to the City of Angels.
Widely considered as one of the best road-trips in the entire world, the Pacific Coast Highway was breathtaking! Along the way we stopped for plenty of photo ops, played in the ocean, and even got to see some more sea lions!
Check out our photo gallery from the drive below:
Eventually we arrived in Los Angeles and would end up staying there for a total of ten days. During our time in LA, we visited a number of great Universities including:
- California State Los Angeles
- University of California at Riverside
- California State Fullerton
- California State Long Beach
- University of California at Irvine
We found CSU Long Beach to be one of the most impressive schools we visited during our time in California. The student population is incredibly engaged and intelligent and many students embraced the concept of studying/working abroad. They have a gorgeous campus and an awesome student body - some of whom can be seen performing some circus acts in the photos above.
As you may know, at Get in2 China we like to WORK HARD and PLAY HARD. Los Angeles is a world-class city and we were fortunate enough to have some really cool experiences there. And of course, our cameras were out in typical tourist fashion.
We saw a NASA space shuttle!

As you can see, the Get in2 China team had a blast exploring LA!
Now that we are back in Beijing, we are definitely missing the sunshine and beaches that characterize Southern California. The good news is that due to all of our efforts, we have already had a significant amount of University of California and California State University students enroll in our China Internship Program. Are you among them?
In the coming years we look forward to strengthening our relationship with Universities in Southern California as well as the rest of North America.

Much love and cheers from the whole team at Get in2 China!
We will see you in China.
