This past weekend all members of the Microcampus Group P - Phenomena - attended a lock-in. I was unfortunately not able to make it, due to a swim meet in Hong Kong. However, I made a video reflection on what I will be looking forward to, and what I am anxious about for the upcoming trip. The video can be found here

On April 22-23 2016, the Phenomena group had a lock-in where we learned many things about Microcampus and the daily life of a Microcampus student. You can view my reflection here.

You may be wondering, why did this kid apply so late. Well, I have been considering for applying to Microcampus ever since 7th grade. I have asked other experienced students about the journey at Microcampus and their response were predominantly positive. Anyways, my parents were held back because they thought I wouldn't catch up on "school" homework. However, I proved my parents wrong by telling them that this opportunity may only happen once in a life time. I hope chaperones or my fellow Microcampus mates can point out my weaknesses throughout Microcampus to improve myself as a person.

Hi, my name is Risa Yokoyama and this is my first journal entry post. I will be participating in the Microcampus trip in 2016 from April to May. I am really excited to travel to Xizhou with the group to meet to local residents there and just experience their daily life. I hope this amazing opportunity will help me expand my horizons and also get out of my comfort zone. I cannot wait!

Hi, this is my first journal post of my Microcampus journey. I am very excited to have to opportunity to travel to this village for a period of 28 days starting April 30th. Microcampus is a great experience for us to really learn what daily life is like is this village. I look forwards to learning much during my time there and trying many things outside of my comfort zone. While on the trip, I look forwards to going in depth wight my inquiry project and learning much about the village and what China can be like outside of the comforts of the city.

Hi! This is my first journal post. I am a microcampus member that will be on the trip from April to May. I can't wait to see what Microcampus will bring and I hope that I will be a different, more exposed and experienced person when I return. I am interested to learn more about the inquiry project that I will be spending a majority of my time on and to do more research and learn about Yunnan. I would like to say Thank you to Mr.Tafel and Ms. Mai for this wonderful opportunity that has been offered to me.
