The Yangtze River and the Three Gorges Dam Project 

    In May of 2002 a group of students and faculty from The University of Akron took a three day boat trip on the Yangtze as part of a Travel & Study in China program through UA International Programs.  We had an amazing experience as we traveled in a third-class Chinese passenger boat and saw some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.
