Jason Bowen Rydalch, Fall 2016 Participant
I found the cultural aspects most rewarding. Becoming familiar with new cultures and appreciating the differences was extremely rewarding in regards to my personal development.

My favorite part of the program was a student organization that was offered for every single exchange student to be a part of called KUBA. KUBA stands for Korea University Buddy Assistants and it is made up of over 100 Korean students and 800 exchange students. Every single exchange student is placed into one of the 8 groups and is partnered with one Korean student as their "buddy". This group meets for weekly lunches and dinners, and weekend activities. This group really helped me make friends, get involved in both campus and our city, and experience Korean culture.

It is very easy to get housing other than the dorms. I was under the impression that the dorms were the best and frankly only option. However this is false. There are several other housing options that offer better rooms and even have a better location than the dorms.
