1 July 09: SBU has a new President, Dr. Sam Stanley, and his wife is Chinese American, Dr. Ellen Li. Her parents are from Shanghai. When everything settles down we will try to arrange an AIMP CEAS reunion with Dr. Li, hopefully in time for the 10th anniversary of the last group in AIMP to come to the US. Joining the SB crew will be Dr. Kelvin Willoughby, now with Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand, and hopefully everyone else can make it too! Once he settles in and the fiscal crisis affecting the University allows a reunion to happen, everyone will be notified. There will be smaller gatherings in China - see notices above - until then.

BHP had ten Olympic torchbearers from their global operations.

28 Jan 08: Yunfan Wang, who goes by the name of Katherine, started her first day of classes. Her father is WANG Zhiwen from China V. She became the first child of any China alumni to become a Stony Brook University student. She said she loves her classes. She came in September to attend IEC, the Intensive English Center, and placed so high in the exam she was put in the top class. If she passed her classes she was guaranteed admission to SBU - and of course she did!

Here are photos of her at different events. She met President Kenny at the Distinguished Alumni Awards dinner where the first Chinese American was honored; her graduation from IEC; and decorating her first Christmas tree.

Besides scholarships to attend high schools in the US, he is building ice rinks and youth hockey teams in China. In January he brought the Harbin and Qiqihar teams to Long Island for the Lighthouse Tournament, an international competition against an American team and a team from Finland.

Summer 07: Bohua Kou, who goes by the name of Henry, is a high school student at St. Andrew's Sewanee HS in Tennessee. He spent the summer at Stony Brook auditing classes and studying for the TOEFL. His father is KOU Fuping from China V.  Although with auditing Bohua was not an official student, he still took all the exams and he would have gotten an A in Intro Chemistry, one of SB's more difficult classes. And he passed his TOEFL exam with flying colors! Here he is in an article he wrote about a bike trip he took.
