A senior at Western Michigan University has no idea when he gets to come back home.

WDIV in Detroit spoke with Dylan Tullett who is in a village in China and stuck there for the meantime due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Tullet, a native of Grand Rapids, traveled to Beijing, before the outbreak happened, to study Mandarin.

He says he's been in contact with school advisors as to how to proceed with his studies. If there isn't a way for him to get back to the U.S., he'll continue going to school in Beijing.

Tullett is staying in a small village in southern China of about 200 people. To keep busy, he's been trying to learn the customs and language of the village.
