Elise Cooper was a KCJS student in the fall of 201. "She absolutely thrived on the program, going well beyond her studies to engage with the local community in extraordinary ways. She attended sermons at Honganji, volunteered at an English school, and even audited a graduate course at Doshisha! She was a model KCJS student and a credit to UVA."  Matthew Stavros,Ph.D., Director, The Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies (video no longer available)
