A group of students and I decided to take a trip to the Seoul tower. We were told how beautiful it was at night, and decided to go there for dinner. When we arrived at Seoul Tower, we were shocked by the view of Seoul. We thought that being on the fourteenth floor and having the view we have from our dorms was amazing, we were wrong. The view from the tower was absolutely incredible. We were fortunate enough to eat at the N Grill restaurant on the fifth floor of the tower. It was a very elegant restaurant, with large windows. The tables were all placed in front of the windows. The restaurant moved slowly around in a circle, allowing you to see the entire city of Seoul. It was a six course meal, and the food was delicious. I can honestly say that was one of the best experiences I have had in Seoul so far.

Well, studying about the culture is one thing and living it is another… Myself, together with a couple of friends and group members, literally lived the South Korean culture last night, and it was nothing but AMAZING!!!
Had a great first day. I learned some very useful Korea phrases and met some of the students from Sejong University! They are the nicest people and we are all going to hang out from now on! My birthday is in 13 days and they want to celebrate! I am not going out to explore the city, I will be back with more news. P.S. the food is….AWESOME!! =)
I have arrived in South Korea and had a nice welcoming to some amazing pizza! Day one starts tomorrow and I am extremely excited! I met some awesome new people and I look forward to the trip! It is now time for me to go to bed to prepare for the class and day tomorrow for it is now 11:30 pm here in South Korea. I will keep you updated with more information on my adventures. Stay tuned! =)
Hello everyone, I’m Shaina Vandemoortele, a junior at the Providence Campus! My major is International Business with a minor in Environmental Sustainability and concentrations in Human Resource Management and Psychology! I chose to participate in the South Korea study abroad because not only did I think it would be a life changing experience but what better place to study Human Resource Management than in a country that masters the art?!
I have arrived in South Korea and am currently in the Airport anticipating my arrival to Sejong University! The airport is beautiful and I am more than excited to begin the trip!! I will keep everyone posted on the events that go on throughout the trip! See you later!
Hello, I have just experienced my first flight to California, and out of the country. The flight to California was like any other flight I had been on, just a few hours longer which seemed like forever. My flight out of the country was a totally different experience. Thinking about this 12 hour flight to South Korea was nerve wrecking, could I really be on an airplane for that long? While boarding the flight, I caught myself looking around the airplane in shock. The first class section of course looked extremely comfortable. Then when you get to the economy section it was just like any other plane I had been on, but worse it seemed a lot more cramped. How can they put people on a flight now a days with no wifi, I just couldn’t understand that. Not to mention the TVs were in the most awkward spots, making it hard to watch. After the the safety announcement and the departure announcement, I noticed the attendant walking around handing out forms of paper. The forms were to give to customs after we had reached Korea and exited the plane. Never had I been on an airplane before and had to fill out personal information to hand to customs. As far as the food, I have never had an airplane meal prior to this experience. I skipped the first meal they served, because I had bought something to eat in the airport and of course that looked a lot better then what they were serving. The last meal they served I gave in and tried it. My first airplane meal ever and it was noodle stir fry with raspberry shortbread cookies on the side; I found that quite interesting. Honestly, what’s better than a microwaveable meal, NOT! Also, I noticed how every time they gave directions, or made an announcement, they always said it in English first then Korean, which I found interesting. I guess that concludes my flight experience, ow its time for me to enjoy an exciting opportunity of exploring Seoul. Sincerely, Allie
Now that I’m halfway done with college I’ve been asked a lot: is JWU worth it? and more recently I’ve been asked is the Disney Culinary/College Program worth it? At the end of the day I only have one answer for both of them and that answer is: yes.
