A warm welcome to Spring 2020!

Say hello to our Spring 2020 Cohort! Last week, the AKP Center welcomed over 20 new students during Spring Orientation. Thursday through Saturday, the new cohort made their way through a packed schedule, which included a greeting from their full-year AKP senpai, a safety/self-defense workshop, and commuting practice with Doshisha volunteers.

It all ended with the New Year’s Party on Saturday evening, where AKP celebrated both the students and their lovely host families. Many thanks to Adriana Nazarko (Bowdoin College) and Felicia Soderberg (Wesleyan University) for your great speeches!

This week, all AKPers began their classes for the spring semester. 皆さん、頑張ってください!
