Kumadai Global Youth Campus Summer Festa

The College of Cross-Cultural and Multidisciplinary Studies held its first “Summer Festa” on August 8 during Kumamoto University’s Open Campus.


Over 100 high school students from over 30 different high schools around Kyushu came to enjoy the events, which included presentations from Japanese university students who have recently returned from study-abroad, international exchange games, and a Skype session with Japanese students currently studying abroad at Newcastle University in Australia.


High school students who participated were able to talk directly with international exchange students as well as Japanese students with study abroad experience, giving them the opportunity to explore their options and deepen their interest in becoming global citizens.


Summer Festa is one part of Kumamoto University’s “Kumadai Global Youth Campus”, a new project which strives to bring international experience and education to the future students of Kumamoto University.
