ASP Class of 2018 Arrives!

altOn Monday, February 5, 117 students from Tokyo International University arrived on the campus of Willamette University and Tokyo International University of America.  This marks the 31st year since the program began in 1989.  In that time, over 3,000 students have enrolled in the one-year American Studies Program (ASP) at Willamette University.

After a week of opening days activities, classes will begin on Monday, February 12. This year's class includes students from Japan, China, Thailand, Peru, South Korea, and Taiwan. It is composed of  53 women and 64 men.

If you are interested in getting involved with the students, TIUA offers a Tomodachi ("friendship") Program which matches community members with students and asks that they meet together at least once per
 month. There are several options this year, including a semester program (April-June or Sept.-Dec.) or for the entire year (April-December).   It is not a homestay program, but provides an opportunity for students to get off campus and share typical "American" experiences with local participants.
