A welcome party for the fall 2017 international students was held on September 12 in the college hall. About 40 participants, including international students, Hokusei students, and staff, joined the party and were welcomed by Prof. Peter Gray, Director of the International Education & Language Center.
In the middle of the party, the 19 international students introduced themselves in front of everyone. One international student who is from the United States explained his catchy nickname in Japanese. In addition, an international student who is from Korea told us his passion for Japanese baseball and said, “I’d like to go to the Sapporo Dome to watch baseball as soon as possible!” All of the international students gave a unique self-introduction.
After the welcome party, another party was held on the second-floor of the college hall, and everyone enjoyed playing “Human Bingo.” The international students and Hokusei students had lots of fun interacting and chatting with each other.
