There are over 13,000 local students willing to extend their assistance to international students, so the settling-in process should be quite smooth. In order to facilitate initial contact with local students, various friendship programs are organized. It is up to your initiative to join these activities which will make campus life more enriching and interesting.

However, you will always find some local students taking courses with you in each class. Moreover, increasing diversity among international students adds the special flavor of learning about many other cultures, which will make your campus life an international experience. The campus life at Kansai Gaidai will provide you with a rich opportunity for personal and intellectual growth.
