“DCU has various communities and students can belong to them as many as they want. If you belong to these communities, you can make friends who have the same hobbies.
I met Irish people who like Japanese culture. And from the summer of 2023, my friends from DCU will come to Japan to study abroad.
Thanks to DCU, now I have many friends in the world and I acquired various values, so I got confidence that I can live anywhere in the world."
