Discover Japan Students Participating in the “Discover Japan Program” at Tokai University in Kanagawa, Japan was one of the best decisions that I made. I learned the Japanese language and experienced the rich culture of my heritage. I made a lot of friends from all over the world living in the International Dorm. The “Discover Japan Program” is an excellent opportunity for students interested in studying abroad. –Matthew Ogata, Mililani, Hawaii The Discover Japan program gave me the chance to study in Japan to improve and take my Japanese skills to a higher level. I truly love Japan and its language, culture, and Tokai University Shonan Campus, but what I miss more is HTIC. –Caylee Takafuji, Kealakekua, Hawaii

The Top 5 Admissions Mistakes1. Sub-par spelling The number one complaint cited by college officials about applications they receive is poor spelling.2. Too much informality Text-message speak or slang, turns off officials, who want to know if you can write at the college level. Also, be aware of details that might cast a negative impression. An e-mail address like email@example.com will almost certainly be a turn-off to colleges.3. The wrong amount of info. A college application may include several components. Don’t rush through the application and leave items blank. But at the same time, don’t overdo it. Too much info can also be a weakness. Please also be honest! Dishonesty can get you into trouble!4. Missed deadlines Missing deadlines is one of the most heart-wrenching mistakes a student can make.5. Failing to Limit Parents’ Involvement While parents should be heavily involved in any decisions related to applying to college, some students let Mom or Dad become too involved.
