Summer 2018 Participant
Most rewarding was definitely the interactions with the people in Japan, especially the homestay experience. Everyone was so lovely and welcoming, it couldn't have been any better.

Drew Kocour, Summer 2017 Participant
We're all just citizens of the world. Other countries may seem vastly different when looking at them from afar, but once you live in and/or spend time in that country, you do not truly know how life is there. You may find that other countries are actually quite similar to your own, or at the very least find them personally appealing, when beforehand you had held a more than different view. It is my personal opinion that every student should study abroad at least once in their life, because it is a truly necessary experience.

Holden Ann Zimmerman, Summer 2016 Participant
I learned a lot about myself, a lot about Japanese history and literature, but most important I learned what living in Japan is really like.
