Nic Querolo has taken courses in the Japanese department throughout his time at the College. He studied language and international business abroad at Keio University in Tokyo during the spring semester of his sophomore year. Upon returning, he began the process of creating his own major in Japanese through the Charles Center since it is currently only offered as a minor. For a capstone project, Nic wrote an honors thesis with the assistance of faculty advisor Michael Cronin on the work of Japanese Fashion Avant-Garde fashion designers. He was able to go back to Toyko to conduct his research thanks to a grant from the Charles Center. Nic is currently in the third round of interviews at NHK and hopes to be starting work at the DC Bureau in the summer as an economic associate producer.
