On Friday, May 12, 2013, a certificate conferral ceremony was held to recognize the outstanding achievements of students who completed the APU Notebook. APU President KORENAGA Shun praised the efforts of the eleven recipients before handing each student a certificate of recognition.
APU-Note is part of the University’s pre-enrollment projects that invites soon-to-be APU domestic students* to learn more about the different countries and regions represented on campus by our international students**.
Each page of the APU-Note has a template for each of the different countries and regions represented on campus. The task offers students the opportunity to be creative, imaginative and use colors and pictures to introduce each country based on a theme of the students’ choice.
This year the Grand Prize was awarded to HONGO Yuki (College of Asia Pacific Studies, Year 1, Japan).
Ms. HONGO made the following remark when she received her certificate. “It was difficult to find all the information I needed, but I went to the library everyday and read through lots of books. Finally completing the task gave me a great sense of satisfaction. Receiving this certificate made me realize that good things will come from hard work. In the future I aim to study abroad and get actively involved in volunteer projects and other activities”.
*The term “Domestic Students” includes international students with non-Japanese nationality possessing residential status in Japan other than “college student”.
**The term “International Students” denotes those students who possess a “college student visa”.
