The lunch-time event was kicked off in the Global Village with a welcoming address given by President Arakawa. Afterwards, in response to his address, Mr. Muhammad Azwar from Andalas University, Indonesia and Ms. Sun Yiru from Shanghai University, China, expressed their enthusiasm towards studying at OCU.
Specially Appointed Vice President Tsuruta ushered in a luncheon with a toast. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere throughout the whole event. The students not only enjoyed a conversation with the President and Vice President but also socialized with the other international students and OGM members.
Although the periods of study for each exchange student differ from 1 month to a year, we wish them all a meaningful life at OCU.
