Kendra Danice Marr, Spring 2013 Participant
It's so hard to pick my favorite part of this program! I loved living in the international dorm and meeting so many new friends from all over the world, and participating in international clubs at my university to meet even more students at my university, and just living in Tokyo overall. Tokyo is an amazing place that words cannot even describe, and I was so lucky to be thrown in with so many cool people to share in the experience.

My collective experience in Japan has inspired me to really strive for another level of excellence in myself, and in my passions/areas of study.

I love Tokyo. I absolutely love Tokyo. My favorite part of the program was being able to explore the city freely: everything from taking near-weekly walks from Shibuya Station to Shinjuku Station to spending an afternoon in Akihabara looking for a hard-to-find book or game to picking somewhere I'd never been and walking around the area. Tokyo is an amazing city, and with about every fifteen minutes of walking the look and feel of the streets changes drastically. There's so much to see and do--it's a wonderful place.
