Symposium with Senshu Students - Tuesday, May 30

This is the first ever event organized by RAs (Residence Assistants at International House).  Five Japanese students prepared presentations, titled "Whats' up around University", and gave a short talk to five different groups.  The small unit worked very well and they all had a wonderful time. They went out together after the session!

We love Sushi!! - Tuesday, May 30

A sophisticated (?) online booking system did not allow me to book 17 people at once.  I ended up having two account to book four tables.  Food was much better than I thought.
