While working in Wuxi there were no Foreign Teachers dorms on Campus. The school thought all the foreign teachers would like to live close to downtown. So we had a 20 minute shuttle bus ride to school each day.
Then as part of these schemes to concentrate Chinese UNIs on the outskirts of the city our school moved in Feb 2008 to one of these remote parts.
Again no FT dorms but now a ONE HOUR shuttle bus ride to school and ONE HOUR back again
. But as we were only the 2nd Uni out there in the "sticks" in a scheme that would eventually hold about 20 UNI's you wouldn't want to live out there anyway.
So for my next gig my first Q was "will I live on Campus?"
