A Day in the Life of a Student on Study Abroad in Japan
Lunch at an Off Campus Café
Along with the cafeteria, there are many delicious hideouts near campus to eat lunch. I recommend enjoying exploring around your university when you are not busy with classes so you know when you can go where when you are in a hurry.
Afternoon Studying at the Library
I enjoy studying outside of class as much as in class. My favorite place to study is the library where I can borrow a computer for easy research and the books I need are near on hand. Ritsumeikan University just built a new library this year and the views from here are also great for between focused sessions of study.
Dinner at the School Cafeteria
The school cafeteria is open till 9:30 so it is a great option for dinner. If I have been studying with friends I especially enjoy relaxing in the cafeteria to debrief on studies, activities and life.
I am involved with many things outside of school so I will often leave campus after class. Whether discussing different topics with my student organization, enjoying a cycle around Kyoto, taking part in English conversation classes, or meeting with volunteers at church my time is always exciting and fulfilling.
