On September 27th–29th an online orientation was held for the 35 new exchange students joining short-term programs in the AY 2021 fall term, as well as 7 students continuing on from the spring term. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they cannot come to Japan and joined via computer from their home countries. However, they all cooperatively introduced themselves and focused seriously on the orientation. We were glad to see their eagerness and high expectations for the programs.
