Sias is located near the Yellow River in the town of Xinzheng and is ideally placed in Central China in Henan Province which is considered the “cradle of Chinese civilization”. This not only makes traveling to other parts of the country easier but also allows for easy access to local ancient historical sites. Sias teachers can also take 2-3 university sponsored trips around Henan each semester. Previous trips included tours of Nanyang, Luoyang, the Shaolin Temple, Kaifeng, the Yellow River, Yun Tai Mountain and Xi’an—home of the Terracotta Warriors.
