Calvin’s ISE Experience

What is it like to study abroad?

Hear all about the ISE exchange student experience from Calvin, a U.S. student participating in a 3-month cultural exchange in Japan.

Calvin chose to study abroad in Japan this spring! Calvin describes his experience studying abroad as a great language and cultural experience. Some of his favorite highlights included: meeting some other foreign exchange students who had been to America from Japan, joining the soccer club, spending quality time with his host family, and experiencing a new way of life. Calvin loves the school and the teachers, his Japanese has really improved, and he is having a great time overall!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.” – Mark Twain
