What do you enjoy about Tsukuba (University of Tsukuba and Tsukuba City)?

To me, comparing to big cities like Tokyo, Tsukuba City is a quiet place that I would be more likely to favor. Also, you cannot say Tsukuba City is inconvenient because it is far from big cities, as it also has a wide range of shops and restaurants. As for Tsukuba University, what I enjoy most must be the abundance in sports facilities and teachers for me to choose my favorite sports lesson and learn under professional instructions.

Tsukuba University has numerous associations for different hobbies and definitely anyone can find a place and get to know people with similar interests. As a photography enthusiast who picked up a camera since elementary school, I cherish every minute in the Tsukuba Photoclub where I can share and hear about opinions about how to take better photos.

What do you want to accomplish as a student of the University of Tsukuba during your study period?

This is a serious topic to me, and I have been thinking about it since the first day I came here. The topic should be divided into two parts, the process and the results, and today I would like to talk about the process. As for the process, I must learn to take up the responsibilities as a student. As we move further into the world of academics, we may find what we are doing is becoming much more difficult that we imagined earlier, therefore we may lose interest and want to give up, but what I’m thinking about is that as a university student, I cherish my chances of being accepted into the university and I definitely do not want to disappoint the teachers who chose me. I have made mistakes before over this issue, and I shall never make same mistakes again. This is why I want to be a more responsible person and learn about the endurance for overcoming difficulties.
