International Exchange Camp for Freshman International Students and Student Supp

  May 11th Sat. To 12th Sun., 2019, International exchange camp for freshman international undergraduate students and student support volunteers was held near Lake Yamanaka. 13 freshman international students and 16 support volunteers participated in the camp.

On the first day, participants visited the world heritage site, Oshino Hakkai where divided teams were to work on the assignment that required them to take pictures, which show good cross-culture examples between Japan and the home country of the international students. All the teams walked around to find the good examples, eagerly exchanging their opinions, while enjoying the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji and beautiful Oshino Hakkai at the same time.
In the evening, the photo competition was held. Each team introduced their partners with good humor and made a presentation about the best pictures of the team. Then pictures which show the best piece of cross culture were voted as best works.

On the second day, they got an orientation for student support activities and walked in Lake yamanaka flower park where they enjoy the contrast of beautiful flowers and Mt. Fuji.
After the camp, many of the students became more eager to spend time together and to have more interest in different cultures. The camp was very successful to have participated students get to know each other better.
