Orientation for 2015 Study Abroad in Kyoto, Japan!

Rather small group of 2015 COD Study Abroad Japan gathered for the orientation in which we discussed some travel information as well as acquiring trans-cultural competence.

A former participant and a philosophy professor, who participated GTS' international field study in Japan twice, joined to assist this important gathering.

First day presentation includes the Peace Study for which we will visit Hiroshima during the program in order to listen to the actual A-Bomb survivor after 70 years of A-Bomb drop.

Students will be informed their host family and the language school itself. 

This year, for the first time, 15 students from East Los Angeles College will join the program and share the meaningful global experience in Kyoto, Japan.  Summer 2016 will be joined even more by students from Georgia Southern University.
