A welcome party was held on Tuesday, April 4, for exchange and invited students from ICU's partner universities in the United States―the University of California in California, Middlebury College in Vermont and the University of Colorado in Colorado.
Senior Associate Professor Joo-Young Jung in charge of the international educational exchange program told the students, "I am very happy to be able to hold this welcome party on this day when cherry blossoms are so beautiful. Times passes so quickly. I hope you will experience many things here at ICU." Introducing themselves later at the party, some of the students expressed hope to do their best to learn the Japanese language.
A total of 97 international students, including 27 newcomers, will study together with students in the College of Liberal Arts during the spring term through the end of June.
