CSIP and SAISUA jointly organized a "Welcome Hour," a welcome party for new faculty members, international students and administrative staff who joined the University in autumn 2011. The event was held at Keyaki restaurant (the Student Hall) on Friday, Nov. 4, 2011 at 18:00. There were more than 30 participants including President Tsunoyama and his wife, faculty and staff members, and students. Prof. A. Ben, Treasurer of the SAISUA took a role of the MC and the party started with a welcome address by President Tsunoyama. This time 14 international and Japanese students from a student circle "Win-win Club" attended the party. This circle aims to have an intercultural communication between international students and Japanese students. After a scheduled one hour, especially international and Japanese students were reluctant to leave the venue as though there seemed no end to conversation topics.
