SAF's Student Promise
“In the first half of my program, the university organized photography near the Brooklyn bridge and a night cruise - both big events! My photography will look great on Instagram. The night view is beautiful, so I highly recommend it. Night cruising was great! Everyone was dancing and getting to know each other - it really was fun and the best memory!”Keishi Suzuki, Past SAF Student
