Lang from China- April 2016 Admission

 On the June 18th, I took part in the Welcome party for the foreign students in Kyoto University. This essay is just about some interesting stories during the party and my expectation for my university life.

When I received the notice of the party, I was very excited and looked forward to it. Because I am keen on making friends and the president attends the party. Moreover I received the mail to ask me whether I would want to be the representative to answer the question, to be honest; I was very surprised to be chosen as the one of five representatives to answer the question. Even though it is my honor and I was proud of myself, I was nervous. It is a good opportunity but also I have to talk to hundreds of foreign students and the president. The question that why I choose Kyoto University was most common question for all of students in the university also it was the most valuable question if we want to spend an unforgettable university life, it is the most important problem for us.langphoto1

I decided to further my study in Japan in my high school. When I was 12 years old, because of the interest to the Japanese culture, I chose the Japanese class in my school. In the process to choosing Japan, my tutor in my high school and my parents influenced me a lot. My tutor is an experienced, kind person and she taught a lot of students who study in Japan so she gave me good suggestions. My parents supported me financially and mentally as well. We should know what we can get from Kyoto University and also what we can give to the university. So as I answered in the party, I want to challenge the new environment and improve me in Kyoto University. In the Interview, I have not only talked about my viewpoints on the question, but also heard other ideas from my foreign friends. They come from different countries such as the United States and Indonesia. They have the own story for why they chose Kyoto university but the same point is that they like Kyoto very much. In the conversation before the interview, I knew I was the youngest representative among the five people even some of them are in graduate school.

I prepared a lot and I thought the interview went well.

In the party, as I thought, I met many friends from China, Indonesia, the United States and so on. We took photos; cheered, chatted for the university life and enjoyed the show “kendo” impressed me most. The party was significantly successful. In addition, the food was more than I expected they are delicious and various. I like sushi best and in fact, after the party, we all appreciated Kyoto University to give the excellent party, especially the delicious food.

 I expect all of us can really fulfill our dream after the four year in Kyoto University.
