Each year, the nation’s capital hosts the Cherry Blossom Festival, a celebration of the long-standing relationship between the United States and Japan. For MSFS, the festival has special meaning.
This year, our program has 10 Japanese students enrolled in the program, totaling 5% of the entire student body. That’s more representation than any other foreign country in our program. We asked our Japanese students to reflect on their time at Georgetown, the significance of the festival to their U.S. experience, and the importance of community.
