"Living in Tokyo, I was constantly learning new ideas about a culture I had thought I already understood so well. It’s a lifestyle completely different from what I am used to in Wisconsin, with unexpected experiences every day. Tokyo is an energetic, vibrant, and crowded city where you’ll get lost on a regular basis, but at the same time be glad you did."

“Studying abroad is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Being fully immersed in a new culture and language pushed me to become more open-minded and understanding of other cultures, as well as helped increase my confidence with the French language.”

“If you are thinking of going abroad--I say DO IT. I originally thought I didn't want to go abroad because I was so comfortable with my life here, but then I realized that I needed to continue growing, challenging myself, and that the world is so much bigger than what I've experienced so far. It was by far the best decision I've ever made and I had the time of my life!”
