2017 ASP Program Winds Down

altAs the American Studies Program at Willamette University and Tokyo International University of America enters the final week, several fun events will be taking place on campus, along with the final projects and exams.  The annual Flea Market occurs Saturday, Dec. 9, from noon to 2pm.  This is the place to find sports equipment, clothes, dorm supplies and mini-fridges, since the students don't usually take those kinds of items back to Japan!

On Monday, Dec. 11, TIUA hosts the Co-Curricular Honors and Awards event where students are recognized for their various accomplishments during the program.  These normally include community service hours as well as working on specific projects. 

One hundred and seventeen students will be honored during the annual closing ceremony on Friday, December 15, 2017.  There will be a certificate ceremony, as well as presentation of some awards, in Hudson Hall on the Willamette University campus.  The ceremony will be followed by a reception party. The ceremony is the culmination of a year of intense study of English and American Studies courses taught by TIUA and Willamette University faculty members.


2017 Reunion Held in Japan

altWhether reminiscing about the food service or networking about career opportunities, alums attending the WU/ASP reunion held June 17, thought it was a hit. They gathered in Ikebukuro on June 17 at the Prado Il Bar. There were alums from the 1970s through 2016. Reunions are held every June in Tokyo! Click here for photos and hope to see you next year!

Busy Weekend!

altThe last weekend in June was a busy one! Not only were students preparing for the last week of the summer session, but they volunteered at the World Beat Festival and with Simply Birthdays in Keizer, and some joined the Tomodachi Potluck!  Click here to see photos from the World Beat Festival performance.
