Welcome reception for International Students

There was a welcome reception for international students, according to the university president that only the international students would receive such a welcome reception from school. This spring, the school welcomed about 750 new international students worldwide.

Admission is free for international students but we have to redeem our admission tickets prior.

Reception was held at Rihga Royal hotel which is right beside the university campus. I think the hotel is there as it is convenient for visiting international visitors to the campus.

It was a standing buffet dinner which is supposedly easier for students to mingle around.

So far, I have to admit that Japanese curry rice is always so delicious and I am getting hooked.

Waseda school song, I can’t remember much of it except the last portion where we can shout out “Waseda! Waseda! Waseda!”

One unique thing that I noticed was that we have to rise our right hand when singing the school song.

Next would be our introduction to the unique Japanese way of cheer-leading. Watch here for the typical Japanese cheer-leading
