Korea to Tokyo to Putney
Submitted by chen on Oct 4th, 2012
As an International Ambassador, I wanted to get some early impressions of Putney from a new International student. Here's what sophmore Juno Lee had to say, he is from Korea, but has lived in Tokyo for the last few years.
Me: What has most surprised you about life at Putney since you arrived?
JL: How warm-hearted Putney people are. I went to all boys catholic school in Tokyo. Everyday what I heard were negative comments about each other, and I never felt any respect between teachers and students. However, at Putney, what I hear everyday are positive comments. People actually care about one another, and are very supportive; they don't laugh at each other. I am still touched everyday by how friendly Putney people are.
Me: Is there anything you're nervous for ?
JL: Darkness, ghosts, and horror stories, I always have hard time trying to walk to G-haus by myself at night, haha.
Me: Tell me something happened in your dorm.
JL: One night that I heard music in the common room. I went out and saw people playing music in a circle. So I went back to my room and brought my roommate’s guitar to join them.
Me: Tell me something about your class.
JL: Everyday class is exciting, since we are actually the ones who are discussing and debating. We not only learn from the teacher, but also from each other.
