Students' Memorable Moments...

 "I had fun interacting with people from different places and seeing places in Japan."

 "I liked that I could experience what being a TUJ student would be like and meet new friends."

 "I liked the travel part but also getting to meet Japanese students and making long term friendships."

 "Loved the interaction with each other and with the PAs, everyone was very friendly and nice to talk to."

 "The staff, program assistants, and activities of this program were amazing. Getting to meet people from all over the world and gaining so many new friends was great! This program pushed my final decision to apply straight to TUJ, as I loved being in Japan and at campus and can’t wait to go back."
