September 11, 2017 Beyond Awesomeness
I learned to be more open-minded and more active in listening to other people's story. - Temple University View Entire Review

It was definitely worth while. On top of learning about and experiencing and culture completely different from my own, i learned a lot about my self. I think i gained a lot of confidence and independence. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Seeing the extent of how different people are in different cultures, and yet still all so similar. This was a life lesson that taught me more about myself, and about the world. - Trinity University View Entire Review
August 24, 2016 Amazing
I learned about myself, about my ancestry, and had a great time. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Even though I didn't necessarily meet all the Japanese people I had in mind, I was surprised by the diversity of people I met in general. Temple Japan had students coming in from all over the world and I was in close contact with them the whole time. Even if they weren't all Japanese, the people I met there was the greatest pa... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned that life can be incredibly different, and learned a lot about a culture that was very, very different from my own. However, I also learned that there are a lot of similarities between all people. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
Past Review Japan Is Great
Going to Japan was great. I definitely hope to go back some day. It's interesting to feel so much like an outsider. At first it was very unsettling, but the more Japanese people I got to know, the more I learned about Japan's global relationships. It was an eye-opening experience in that sense. Allover, the most impressive ... - Maryland Institute College of Art View Entire Review
I learned more about myself in 4 months than I have in a whole lifetime. This gave me the ability to discover who I am, who I want to be, what I want to achieve, etc. I learned and was able to get educated on the culture of a whole other country (whether it was traditional or modern), and got to get a taste of what it is like to... - Temple University View Entire Review

I wouldn't say it was life-changing, since I was very well prepared for what I would experience there, but I definitely want to go back as many times as I can in my life. The only major change in me has been my decision to work and live in Japan in the event that my post-graduation plans all fall through. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
It was expensive and not terribly productive but it was definitely worthwhile. You what I did for the first 21 years of my life? Stay home and study. Suddenly here I was in a foreign country full of distractions, and culture and intrigue and the classes weren't as challenging as I was used to (but in all fairness I was used to q... - Temple University View Entire Review

About

As a participant in the fall, spring or 10-week summer semester, you will study alongside degree-seeking Japanese students, who comprise 30 percent of undergraduates, as well as international students from about 60 countries all around the world.
