Student Testimonials

My wonderful days at Chatham University are about to end. It feels like just yesterday that I came here. I remember that I was excited about my new life in the United States. About six months later, I'm full of confidence and spark… I can't forget the days that I spent at Chatham University and the people who I met here. One day, I want to come back to the United States to repay all the people for giving me wonderful days. – Emi Akamatsu
