July is finally here and the CIEE Study Center in Tokyo is busy gearing up for another exciting summer program. This year, we look forward to welcoming students from 17 colleges and universities.
Before beginning summer session classes at Sophia University, CIEE students will join a week-long comprehensive orientation program. This year we have planned a 3-day excursion to central Japan, with the cities of Takayama, Shirakawa-go and Matsumoto on our itinerary. After returning to Tokyo, we will take a trip to the Ghibli Museum to explore the anime of Studio Ghibli, and have a few days to get settled in before the start of the intensive academic program.
We will update our blog again once the 2011 CIEE Summer Program is underway, but in the meantime here are a few photos submitted by students for last summer's photo contest. Enjoy!
