This is a great opportunity to write on the Campus Blog. I heard I am the first international student to write for the blog, so I’d like to write from the  viewpoint of a Japanese student.

Well, finally I got to Batavia on Wednesday. This is my first visit to the US, and I was so excited to come here. Though it took about 13 hours by airplane from Japan to here, I was not tired at all. On Wednesday, the first day at GCC, I and other international students from Japan got our rooms in College Village, and then, we went shopping to Wal-Mart. I was quite surprised the price of commodities. They all are cheaper and bigger than Japan’s! So I felt it is a waste of money if I buy something in Japan. On the second day at GCC, I took my placement test in the morning. I was tired, because the test was long. This was the first time for me to take a test on a computer. Is this a common way of taking tests in the US? I registered for sessions and the classes will start next week, so I’m looking forward to starting the classes!

I’m really excited at everything I do or see at GCC. And I’m glad to be here.
