Student, International, Testimonial

“UWF has a Japan Center that has given me many opportunities to meet with Japanese people and to learn about the Japanese culture from the perspective of Americans. I am teaching Japanese language to local children through a program run by the UWF Japan House. I am glad to study in UWF because of its great faculty members and professors, and staff.”
