On Thursday, October 1, 2009, the APU 10th Anniversary Event Period got officially underway. APU will mark its 10th Anniversary in April 2010 and over the next 12 months will be holding a range of commemorative events under the concept of "The Bonds of Friendship 10 years on –and now towards a new stage". These events will both express our thanks for the last 10 years and also our aspirations for the next decade.
APU has been publicizing the 10th anniversary through a range of methods such as the publication of the "Story of the Birth of APU" and the creation the 10th Anniversary logo and commemorate polo shirts. In the coming months APU will be developing a range of events to express our thanks for the last ten years and to share our knowledge with the community such as academic symposiums, public lectures and events that make use of our multicultural surroundings.
We aim to express our thanks for the last 10 years to the wider community and with the cooperation of the Oita Kotsu and Kamenoi bus companies, wrapped busses featuring APU images, logo and our words of thanks will be running for the next 12 months. We will also be distributing illustrations designed by one of our international students, BUI Xuan Dung (APM3, Vietnam) of the symbolic APU twin towers.
Please look forward to upcoming 10th Anniversary Events.
