I think any college experience will result in learning a from professors or friends. So in that respect Soka does not stand out. However it does have excellent, dedicated professors who you get to know if you choose to. Classes are eclectic, but mostly interesting, especially the ones that are only found here at Soka. As a freshman everyone is required to take the course Core which is essentially examining, using western/eastern philosophy, what makes people happy, and how to live well. Very interesting class. Core 2 is taken sophomore year, and is less theoretical and more practical, i.e....

    I honestly haven't done my usual deep research on this school but it seems like a really nice school. I would like to come to this school because its somewhat far away from home and I would like to live in dorms.However, it seems too expensive for my test, but i might apply next year.

    SUA is a wonderful university where students who have various backgrounds can expand their points of views! All people at Soka is so nice, and I really like peaceful atmosphere of this university! Liberal Arts education and a small class size class help us to find our identities and to find value in everything.

    I visited campus two summers ago. It is a gorgeous learning environment and I could definitely see myself going here if the student population was not so small. The whole school population is 1/3 the size of my high school graduating class, so adjusting to such a small community might be hard.

    Soka University challenges me a lot in many ways. By getting many great opportunities and learning closely with professors and global friends, I am able to broaden my perspectives and interests. I have learned a lot not only academics but also many life lessons.

    Soka University is a very young institution with an enormous number of opportunities available. Because of our very small student body size, students can really get to know everyone (literally) and also receive close attention from professors in their academics, both in and out of the classrooms. Your 4 years at Soka are really determined by how YOU make it.

    Soka University of America gave me so many opportunities to grow and challenge myself as a human being as well as meet and befriend amazing people from all over the world. The mandatory study abroad was one of the best experiences of my life. Whatever your interests are, there is a club or activity for you, and if not you can start one yourself!

    Soka is for the students and by the students. What I mean by this is that, we truly run the school. The administration wants us to take initiative and make this school how we want to have it.
