Studying abroad has been a unique experience. Bunkyo Gakuin and the GSI office made sure we were all taken care of and looked after. In the first months of the program, almost every week we would have something scheduled, which was a little bit exhausting but overall a great experience and all of the students were having fun. All of the international students grew really close and friendly over a few months. We would frequently go out to explore or visit places we really liked. Tokyo is, in my opinion, one of the greatest cities in the world, full of possibilities...and most of all, people. There are A LOT of people here. It was a bit of a culture shock. I had to communicate with them somehow and my Japanese wasn't that great. It has definitely gotten better though, thanks to my patient and understanding teachers.

 ADAM PIC.jpgThroughout my life, I have had many memorable experiences that vary from being the worst times and some being the best. One of my best days in life was definitely being part of the Bunkyo Gakuin University Multi-lateral Exchange Program in 2018. Sure it was a roller coaster ride but the amount of love and support I was given all through the program was worth it. The program broadened my perspective of the Japanese culture from religion to social development and its society. I'd say I was lucky to be part of the whole Japan trip, I was able to live and experience the Japanese life and not just seeing through the foreigner/tourist point of view. There, I met some of the most amazing people that I'm proud to call friends. I'd say the whole Japan experience would be different if it wasn't because of my dorm mates - Pineapple Kings, the Nishikata girls and Japanese friends that I made during my stay. Honourable mentions to Yuki, Kiandro and Tatsuya. I was given the opportunity to stay with a host family over the weekend in Chiba. The Kaneko family treated me with great care and kindness that reminded me of home. The people working at the GSI office was helpful and attentive to all of their students, which to my surprise is different to my local university. Excursions and activities involved in the program ran amazingly smoothly with the help of both Resident Assistant - Donovan and Natalie. Notable excursions - Karuizawa trip, Tokyo DisneySea, Studio Ghibli, Nezu shrine festival, temple and shrine visits as well as the beautiful gardens around Tokyo. Though the 4-months journey ended pretty quickly, I'm glad that I was able to be a part of it as they have become milestones that will be remembered forever.




Christian Grande (U.S.A.)


College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University Graduate in 2018
Participated in the Exchange Program in 2016
Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET) - Assistant Language Teacher (ALT)

 CHRISTIAN PIC.jpgComing to Japan through the exchange program at BGU did a lot to provide me a deeper understanding of Japan beyond what you'd see in the media or a one-week vacation.Through BGU's exchange program, I was able to experience playing the shamisen, Sado, Aikido, and Buddhism in depth during my stay. Participating in this program also helped me to make friends from Japan and around the world. Thanks to my experiences with them, I was able to improve on my Japanese, laugh with them, and understand Japan more than I would have wandering the streets by myself. The exchange program at BGU gave me the confidence to interact, exchange, and learn about people and cultures that I am unfamiliar with. As a word of advice, take any opportunity you can get, deeply engage with the culture you're in, be curious, and laugh with the people you interact with. Don't pass on an opportunity like this.
