JAPAN: A CSI Student’s Study Abroad Journey

Yong Hao Hu is studying on the CSI Exchange Ambassador Program at Seinan Gakuin University (SGU) in Fukuoka, Japan during the Fall 2016 & Spring 2017 semesters.

I have learned and experienced many things in Japan. Japanese culture is very interesting and
day by day I learn new things about everything. My Japanese is improving every day. 

Festivals are fun. So far, I went to the Balloon Festival, Light Festival, Life Festival and the Meat Festival. The Culture Festival is coming and I eagerly await its arrival next week.

College students will create and come up with their own activities to attract people to the festival.

I think studying abroad really opens your mind and shows you many valuable things.

To CSI students who are interested in studying Japanese, science, technology or finance, Japan may be one of your top choices for study abroad.  It is a good chance to experience and learn in a new place and culture. 

My favorite food is Tonkotsu Ramen and Katsudon.
