I was in China for three weeks in March and April. I had a UMass owned loaner laptop that had all 
the standard UMass apps installed, including a vpn to UMass. Academics I know at Sichuan University 
also use vpn software to get out of China. I had the easy way out, but you should research vpn 
options and see what will work for you.
