2018 ASP Program Nears Completion

altAs the American Studies Program at Willamette University and Tokyo International University of America enters the final weeks of the program, several fun events will be taking place on campus, along with the final projects and exams.  The annual Flea Market occurs Saturday, Dec. 8, 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. 10, TIUA hosts the Co-Curricular Honors and Awards event where ASP 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 14, 2018.  There will be a certificate ceremony, as well as presentation of some awards 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.

This class of students arrived for the American Studies Program at Willamette University on February 5. This program offers students the opportunity to take classes at TIUA and WIllamette University, as well as participating in various activities throughout the year, such as volunteering with local charities, getting to know community members through the Tomodachi "friendship" Program, and interacting with Willamette Univaltersity students as roommates and friends.

We are expecting 97 students for the 2019 program, with students arriving February 4. If you'd like to be involved, consider participating in our Tomodachi Program!
