Kansai Gaidai Academic Year 2007-2008

My study abroad experience in Japan impacted the trajectory of my career. I studied abroad from Fall 2007 to Spring 2008; it was an interesting time to be in Japan as I got to see what campaign coverage looked like from Japan's perspective in the lead up to the 2008 election. I stayed with my home stay family the entire year and have gone back to visit them since. Hirakata is well situated to travel throughout the Kansai region and Japan. I found my classes interesting and just challenging enough.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have stayed in Japan for at least part of the winter break and done some more traveling.

Kansai Gaidai Study Abroad

I had a wonderful experience at Kansai Gaidai. The Japanese classes were challenging and I really felt my language skills improve during my time there. The school helped me arrange a homestay with a Japanese host family. The staff was very helpful in solving problems. I met lots of great people from all over the world and was involved in lots of fun activities within the program and in the community. If you are interested in Japanese culture I would highly recommend the Kansai region and Kansai Gaidai University!
