The winter gathering for international students cohosted by both the Faculty of Human Sciences and the Faculty of Sport Sciences was held on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019 at the Coop, Tokorozawa campus.
For entertainment, we invited Sumo club members of Waseda University to the party and International students were excited to watch their special performance such as stamping, shuffling, and authentic fighting. The Sumo club members also explained the history of Sumo and answered several questions one after another from the international students. Furthermore, some international students were provided an opportunity to practice Sumo with one of the Sumo club members and their sparring was so impressive that the party was a blast.
Finally, each freshman graduate student introduced themselves briefly. The party attracted the opportunity for the students to interact with not only other international students but also faculty staff members.
We thank the students for attending the party and look forward to their participation at the next party to be held in spring 2020.
