~*~ Our visit to Waseda University~*~

June 4, 2010 shastokes

Waseda University, known as the Yale, and Princeton’s of the US, was a very nice campus as well.  There was more greenery than Keio University, and I noticed a baseball field along with a basket ball rim, but just one! We had to take 3 trains and a bus to get to the school totaling in over an hour to get there. When we arrived, I noticed that there were not many students walking to class, but that could be that many students were in class already. When we were able to come into the classroom and meet the students, they were very welcoming and eager to speak with us.   Many students were freshmen and were around the age of 19 years old.  One of the students that I talked with told me that her schedule for the day lasted until 6 that evening and she had  4 classes. We learned that a typical schedule for a Waseda student was 90 mins. of class and they only attend once a week.  Also, some students travel 3 hours max to get to school.  I did get a chance to talk with other students who said it took from an hour or 30 mins to get to school. Many of them lived with their families and said that they enjoyed school.  It was shocking to hear the professor mention that once they are accepted to the school, because it was very hard to get in, many do not show up. They feel obligated to graduate them!
