SUA has a breathtakinglyAverageOther
SUA has a breathtakingly beautiful campus. Sometimes I feel SUA like a hell becuase of heavy workload in some classes (if you don't take heavy classes, that's fine). Whenever I feel that way, I take a walk on the campus to feel relieved. This campus makes me calm down and reflesh.

I am a third-year student at Soka.BrightOther
I am a third-year student at Soka. As an international student, I appreciate the supportive environment at Soka. For example, Soka has a writing center, which helps any level of writers. Especially when I was the first year, they helped me a lot with my grammar.

A unique feature of Soka is a diverse student body. International students are about 50%. A good thing about the diversity is that students could make friends from different backgrounds. However, students from similar backgrounds tend to stick together, so it requires efforts to enjoy the advantage of the diversity. Also, some larger groups tend to be represented more than the others. It is a challenge to overcome this issue.Another unique point of Soka is a required study abroad for a semester in a junior year. Students take language classes from their first year to prepare for the study abroad program. Students can choose from four languages, Spanish, French, Japanese, and Chinese. The experiences of study abroad differ depending on students, but definitely, this provides a unique experience with students.

I'm pretty satisfied with SUA.BrightUndecided
I'm pretty satisfied with SUA. I am very excited for my Study Abroad (which is free, by the way, as the university pays for everyone's SA travel) and I feel like this is a school that will allow me to have once in a lifetime opportunities. The courses I am taking are well geared towards my interests (especially international relations and East/Southeast Asian studies), but there are a plethora of courses available, no matter ones interest. It's small, but that's my favourite thing about the campus. I feel like I have a control over my college experience which I wouldn't otherwise have in a bigger university.
