Exchange Student from Kansai Gaidai University in Japan
Senior, Marketing Major
Chi has spent her four years of college all over the globe. She started her college career with two years studying at Kansai Gaidai University in Japan. She then spent her junior year of college at Hochschule Ludwigshafen am Rhein in Germany. And now, she is spending her senior year at Miami University. Prior to starting college, Chi also spent time in Whitby, Canada as an exchange student.
When asked about her favorite part about Miami, Chi said that she loves the Farmer School of Business and the programs that offered through Farmer to business students. Chi took part in Start-Up weekend this past fall. Besides business courses, Chi is currently enrolled in German language courses. She not only loves to travel, but she loves to learn new languages. She speaks English, Japanese, and German.
Being someone who loves to travel, naturally Chi has taken full advantage of being in the United States and being able to visit various locations. She has visited places as popular as Boston, to places that are lesser known, like Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She will also travel back to Canada for Spring Break to see her host family. On her bucket list before she leaves the United States, Chi would like to visit the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
When asked to compare universities in the United States to those in Germany, Chi said that American students are very involved with multiple clubs and organizations on campus. She used Greek life as an example- a community that German universities do not have. And although Chi has enjoyed spending several years abroad, she says that she does missing a couple things from home- her family and the food.
Chi will finish her year at Miami and then will head back to Kansai Gaidai University where she will graduate this August. She will then have some time off before she starts a Sales and Business Management Position with a crane company in Tokyo in April of 2016.
