DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Dayton has become a welcoming spot for some students from China. They are guests of the University of Dayton this summer.
20 young people flew 13 hours to fly 6,800 miles to arrive in the Miami Valley.
They spent four weeks on campus.
"Actually, I have traveled all over the United states and I like Dayton best," said Tina Hui.
Natalie, as she is called in the United States, is taking classes in engineering and intercultural communication.
"They are willing to teach you to communicate very good, to practice English and adapt to life here."
The program's original focus was high school students, but it now includes college students like Natalie.
She and Yao Zyi, or Dean, will start classes at UD in the fall.
"You always say good morning even to strangers in China. It is very strange if you don't know other people," said Wang Tongwei.
The students worked on projects in the engineering department. They also write blogs about American culture.
Huber Heights Police are turning to the public for help identifying two men who they say used a stolen credit card at the Target store in their city.
Multiple ambulance crews have been called to the scene of an accident involving a school bus in Beavercreek.
The shops rely on holiday sales to keep doors open, but instead snow and ice shut many of them down for several days.
Ohio Department of Transportation officials told 2 NEWS that even though they had advance warning on Friday, there was little they could do to stay ahead of the snow and ice.
“A blast of frigid Arctic air will deliver snow overnight and make your morning commute slick,” Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Davis says.
