College of Micronesia Student Invitation Program 2018: Sophia & Reitaku Universities Accept Short-term Students
Two male students went to Reitaku University, and two female students went to Sophia University where they not only took courses at the designated university, but also participated in a homestay and interacted with Japanese college students.
At Reitaku University, the two students audited courses on cross-cultural communication and international relations, learning together with Reitaku students. Outside of school they participated in the university’s school festival, and went sightseeing around Tokyo, visiting places such as Akihabara and Tokyo Tower, experiencing things only possible in Japan.
At Sophia University, the two students took Japanese language and international relations courses while also trying their hand at teaching English to elementary school children. Outside of the classroom they visited historical places such as Asakusa and Kamakura, and were able to experience traditional Japanese culture through ‘ukiyo-e’ block printing and ‘buyo’ dance. The short-term exchange students stayed in Sophia University’s Soshigaya International House dormitory, getting to know other students from all around the world.
Aside from the Student Invitation Program, APIC has also arranged environmental seminars, campus tours of Temple University Japan Campus, and homestays at Japanese students’ and professors’ homes. The students commented that time spent with their Japanese host families was a special time.
