Students in the Modern China honors course taught by Dr. Tina Phillips Johnson, assistant professor of history in the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts, celebrated the opening of a newly decorated computer laboratory in Gerard Hall on May 8. The lab features the style of a Chinese teahouse and includes authentic and historical replicas of Chinese culture, miniature Chinese musical instruments, lanterns, bamboo, a Chinese dragon, works of popular literature and Confucian and Buddhist influences. A chart of Saint Vincent College’s own history with China is part of the décor. Students who participated in the project include, standing from left, Casey Wagner, a sophomore environmental science major from Greensburg; Bethany Biesinger, a senior English major from Johnstown; Dakota Hutchinson, a junior biology major from Rector; Joshua Catalano, a senior history major from Saint Marys; Anna Steighner, a senior political science major from Kittanning; Megan Cunningham, a senior history major from West Newton; Claire Shrontz, a junior English major from Claysville; Jaime Bowker, a senior history major from Pittsburgh (15236); Stephanie Kiesel, a senior history major from Irwin; and Dr. Johnson; kneeling, from left, are Rebecca McGrail, a junior environmental chemistry major from Steubenville, Ohio; and Michelle Koenig, a sophomore history major from Avella.
