New ASP Class 2020

altOn Monday, February 3, 93 students from Tokyo International University (Kawagoe, Japan) arrived on the campus of Willamette University and Tokyo International University of America. They will be here for 10-1/2 months, participating in the American Studies Program (ASP) at Willamette University. Over 3,000 students have joined this program since 1989. 

After a week of opening days and orientation sessions, classes began Monday, Feb. 10. 

Community members can get involved with the students through the TIUA Tomodachi "friendship" Program. Through the program, participants are matched with a student or two and ask that they meet at least once per month. It's a fun to share American culture and learn about other cultures. It is not a homestay program. Learn more about it here.
