On 20 December the 2012 International Students Festival (end-of-the-year party) was held in the main Student Hall at Sugimoto Campus. The Festival is organized every year, through the kind support of the OCU Associates, to provide an opportunity for the international and Japanese students to get acquainted with each other.
OCU President Nishizawa opened the party with a welcome word, followed by short speeches by Professor Minami on behalf of the OCU Associates, Ms. Peng Xue on behalf of the Exchange Students Association and a toast by Vice-President Kiriyama.
150 international and Japanese students and staff attended this year's party and enjoyed the food, drinks and communication games.
At the end of the evening, the Director of the Global Exchange Center Nakagawa thanked everybody for attending, as well as AIESEC, Konoyubitomare and the Student Volunteers for their cooperation.
