Selah Chung

B.A. Integrated Multimedia

Aoyama Gakuin University Fall 2016

"Getting the opportunity to study and live in Tokyo, Japan was an unforgettable experience that was challenging, eye-opening, and incredibly personally rewarding. I got to know people from all around the world, and got to experience both traditional Japanese and international culture. I fell in love with the people, lifestyle, language, and art of Tokyo natives, and I know that no matter where I go from here on, I’ll always carry a piece of Japan with me. My advice: travel as much as you can! You’ll see amazing things, meet amazing people, and find a bit of yourself wherever you go."

Megan Miyahara

BSBA International Business

Yangzhou University Spring 2016

"Studying abroad has definitely been the best and most challenging experience in my life. I had the opportunity to explore China and left with remarkable new outlooks on their customs and local activities.The really great thing about studying in China was that I was not limited to just staying in one city. On holidays, I had time to catch the trains or the buses to different parts of China. China is not just about visiting Shanghai or Beijing, but rather all the little cities that make up this unique country. I am glad that I had some time to travel outside of Yangzhou and see different cities with the friends I had made while being there.I chose China mainly because I am studying business and I thought it would be beneficial to go there to learn more about their trade and finance systems. I also chose China because it has so much to offer as a country. China has such a rich culture and getting to study and be apart of it all was such an eye opening experience."

Tiana-Lei Guillermo

BSBA Finance

Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea Fall 2016

"Four months of studying abroad in a new country has certainly broadened my perspective to new horizons and despite not being able to watch my Korean dramas without English subtitles just yet, I can now read Hangul.  However, I’m still working on my translation skills but I know that will take time and practice.  When traveling to a different country, it is expected that there will be language barriers, but that shouldn’t stop you from having the time of your life.  My one advice to those who want to study abroad: Simply be spontaneous and embrace the new."
