Mr. Samuel Geis Dunaway (Exchange student at the University of Aizu from April to June 2019)
My name is Sam Dunaway and I am from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, in the United States. I studied abroad in Aizu in the spring of 2019. I have had an excellent time in Japan, as a foreign exchange student in Aizu. I have had many opportunities to travel, participate in the culture, and learn more about Aizu as well as Japan as a whole. I have made many friends that I will always remember, both Japanese and international. I also have learned a great deal about myself, as I have immersed myself in another culture in which I don't know the language or customs, and emerged a stronger, more well-rounded individual. I did all of this while enrolled in many classes and participating in research, which enhanced my time management skills. Overall, my experience in Japan is one that I will never forget.
