Dear Professor Seybolt,

I am a high school senior and am looking into colleges that offer Asian studies programs. I am planning to visit UVM over the Columbus Day weekend (October 7-9) and Iím interested in sitting in on a class and meeting with someone in your department to see if UVM would be a good fit for me.

I also understand that there is a Japanese House at Living and Learning that I would like to visit.

I have a particular interest in Japanese culture and I am currently taking Japanese at Harvard Extension School. Also, I recently visited China with a group of students from my high school this past June, which further deepened my interest in the Far East. I am very interested in studying abroad.

Do you have a suggestion of who I could meet with that weekend? What would be a good class to visit on a Monday? Who could I contact about visiting the Living Learning Japanese House?

Thanks for your help.
