“When I first came here, I was surprised by the kind (and good-looking!) students, from various countries such as Malaysia, Japan, Bangladesh, China and Korea. They were very active in club activities and also worked hard in class. Our professors are also very passionate about teaching. I also love how convenient it is to find shopping complexes and eateries around campus.”
