I am a freshman, class of 2015, and my first impression of this school was: Wow, this is a beautiful campus and it would be a dream to live and study here. Fortunately, I was accepted and am in my second semester of my college life.
Soka University is a four-year private university that offers a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts. We have four concentrations that students can take classes on: International Studies, Environmental Studies, Humanities, and Social and Behavior Sciences. About 80% of the students receive some kind of financial aid. We have students from 23 states and 30 different countries, offering language courses in Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and French. There is a chance for every student to go Study Abroad for one semester their junior year.
I have been fortunate to be part of such a beautiful school. Because I enjoy helping people and volunteering, I am interested in the International Studies concentration and I have been able to participate in many volunteering activities. Our school offers many opportunities for students to go abroad, with many students just returning from Indonesia, Argentina, Cambodia, Turkey, Korea, and many others.
This is definitely a school worth going to that will change your life completely.
