From China to the US

Close to 3,000 students from the People's Republic of China are attending American colleges and universities this year, attempting to satisfy what administrators call "a thrist for knowledge."

University officials suggest that the students are trying to catch up with Western advances in Science and Engineering which took place during China's Cultural Revolution.

The students are apparently dedicated to their studies and are "doing quite well academically," according to one administrator.

Most are older than traditional college students -- about 40 -- and have families remaining in China. Some have grants or work programs, and the Chinese government finances an American education for other students.

The administrator added: "They have a good sense of humor, but they are more restrained, coming from a different culture. "
