The Center for Strategy of International Programs and the Center for Language Research jointly held an international exchange and study event for first-year students on Wednesday, May 27, 2009. At the event titled "Life of an International Science and Engineering Student," Assistant Instructor Kawaguchi made a presentation about international exchange opportunities in the University. Senior students who had participated in a short-term study program at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT), the U.S.A., one of the University's international partners, and three exchange students from RHIT were also invited to the event to talk about their college lives in the U.S.A. Their speeches included their lives in the dormitory, after-school activities, facilities in downtown (movie theaters, restaurants, etc.), and how they spent their free time. It was a great opportunity for the participants to get an idea of the life of students studying the same field in other countries. This sort of event will be held continuously for different grades.
