2017 Reunion Held in Japan

altWhether reminiscing about the food service or networking about career opportunities, alums attending the WU/ASP reunion held June 17, thought it was a hit. They gathered in Ikebukuro on June 17 at the Prado Il Bar. There were alums from the 1970s through 2016. Reunions are held every June in Tokyo! Click here for photos and hope to see you next year!

Busy Weekend!

Not only were students preparing for the last week of the summer session, but they volunteered at the World Beat Festival and with Simply Birthdays in Keizer, and some joined the Tomodachi Potluck!  Click here to see photos from the World Beat Festival performance.
