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!
