Keigo came to America and Robert Morris University to study for a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He enjoys snowboarding and sports, especially the Penguins, our hockey team. In 2008 he had to suffer when the team lost the Stanley Cup championship to the Detroit Red Wings. But the next year, he and the rest of the city got to rejoice when the Penguins beat the Red Wings and won the trophy. Go Pens!

Ryota is an exchange student from Kansai Gaidai University. He is studying hospitality and tourism management. In his free time, Ryota likes to sing, listen to music, and play sports. He says he was very surprised when he came through the Fort Pitt Tunnel for the first time and the city suddenly appeared all around him.
