2017 ASP Yearbook Contest

altTIUA is sponsoring an ASP Yearbook Photo Contest. Each year, students and staff create a yearbook, which reflects all that happened during that year through photographs. For the third year, there is a contest to select some of the photos for the yearbook.  The contest is open to students, staff and faculty of Willamette University, including the American Studies Program, and Tomodachi Program participants. There are some great prizes, including two $50, four $25, and 10 $10 Compass Cash (or non-ASWU funds) cards.  In addition, if your photo is selected, you will be credited in the yearbook.

The contest deadline is April 24.  See poster for more details.

 

Tomodachi "Friendship" Program Participants Needed

altThe American Studies Program (ASP) began February 6 with the arrival of 119 students.  One of the primary activities that approximately 80% of the students are most interested in doing is participating in the Tomodachi ("friendship") Program.  Students want to connect and befriend people in the community and share their cultures with them, as well as learning about American culture.  They will be signing up for the program in mid-March and the need for community participants is high.

Whether you are young or old, married or single, have children or not, you have something to offer!  The students live on the Willamette University campus and they are busy with classes and campus life, so all we ask of program participants is once a month contact with your student(s) on your schedule.  It could be for dinner, an athletic event, shopping, movie night, etc. Many of the students say it takes a little of the homesickness away to spend time off campus with you!
