New RJ students settle in to the fall semester

The 72 new Reconnaissance Japan Program students arrived at J. F. Oberlin University in late August and early September. In all, there are now 111 students from 13 countries and regions taking part in this program during the 2012 autumn semester. New students were given an orientation for about two weeks to help them get used to the campus and to life in Japan. At the end of the orientation period, they took part in a welcome party in Sakura Café on September 14. Not only new RJ students but faculty, staff, host families, and “Global Supporters” (Japanese students who help international students) had a good time together.
