Japanese alumni, some traveling more than six hours, enjoyed a Bearcat social last October in Tokyo. Guests included Northwest’s first Japanese alum, Kenichi Moriguchi ’69, graduates from the last three decades and three Northwest administrators. Yuki Osawa Takashima ’97, Japan Alumni Chapter president, is to be commended for helping contact, advertise and promote the event. The chapter is focused on growing the number of Japanese alumni by recruiting younger generations to wear the green and white.
Last October, members of the Japan Alumni Chapter gathered in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo. They were joined by Dr. Charles McAdams, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Chapter President Yuki Osawa '97 led a discussion about potential activities and encouraged the members to let her know the names and addresses of other Northwest alumni currently living in Japan. McAdams provided an update of activities on Northwest's campus and answered questions on a variety of topics. Three of the alumni assisted McAdams at the USA Recruitment Fair in Tokyo two days later.
The Japan Alumni Chapter, Northwest's first international chapter, was founded in July. One of its goals is to promote Northwest to Japanese students who wish to study abroad. In November, three officers participated in the U.S. University Fair in Tokyo and provided support at Northwest's booth. They also provided counseling services to current Japanese students at Northwest. The chapter plans to advertise Northwest in study abroad-related magazines published in Japan.
