  • “RYLA North was so much fun and was a really good experience for me.” ­ - Naohiro

  • "[...] Ultimately, RYLA is about introduction and introspection. It introduces immediately applicable and relevant matters. Matters regarding not only self goals, but more importantly self satisfaction. It introduces new ideas (and old ideas) put into various points of view. [...]" - Makoto, Architectural Technologist
