Overall Experience
This experience was very worthwhile. Chad M - University of Hawaii - Manoa
My overall experience was absolutely incredible. I've made life-long friends, learned a significant amount about Japanese culture and business management practices, and improved on my speaking ability. Anthony D - University of Hawaii - Manoa
In all, this was a fantastic year, the final results of which satisfied me very much. While I had some issues with the language program of the school, I was still able to learn much about different facets of Japanese culture and history, and my language did improve somewhat due to the school. The real sources of language learnin... Ian J - Rice University
Yes, it was worth while. It was very fun. Socially interacting with people from all over the world was great. It changed my perspective on life. Laura B - Rice University
It was so worth it! I have no regrets for going only regrets for not doing more while I was there. I think everyone I know that went feels the same. I have never known anyone to regret going once one gets back, but I know plenty who wish they had gone but never did. David H - The College of William and Mary

About

Keio University is a private, comprehensive higher education institution located on six campuses spread across the Greater Tokyo area. It offers an environment of academic and research excellence in a wide range of fields, and includes a university hospital. Founded in 1858, it is Japan’s first modern institution of higher learning, and over the last century and a half it has established itself as a leader in Japan through its continued commitment to education, research and medicine.

Keio has its origins in the school of Western learning established by Yukichi Fukuzawa, a school which soon evolved into a major center of learning. As a highly respected educator and intellectual, Fukuzawa was one of the pioneers of modern Japan. He aspired for Keio to become a model and leader of society, stressing the importance of learning that is based on jitsugaku, or “science”. In today’s changing world, Keio upholds its founder’s spirit of science as it continues to fulfill his aspiration.
