In Part 2 of his story, Tim Winant writes about the First Men’s Dorm in the 1960s.
Thomas “Tim” Winant has a long relationship with both ICU and JICUF. In the early 60s, he studied abroad at ICU as an “OYR” (exchange student), and again in the mid-60s as a special student taking an intensive course in Japanese. In the 1980s, he was on the Board of JICUF, and returned to ICU in 1990 to serve as the Assistant to the President and the Dean of International Affairs until 1999. We asked Tim to share his unique story in a series of articles. Here is part 1.
Ms. Jessica Cork studied at ICU from 1995 to 1996 as an “OYR” (“One Year Regular,” or exchange student) when she was an undergraduate student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After graduation, she joined the JET program and worked for the Consulate General of Japan in Atlanta for over a decade. She is currently Vice President of Community Engagement and Communications in the YKK Corporation of America. Ms. Cork shares career advice based on her experiences with current students and recent graduates.
Mr. Shinichi Hirabayashi graduated from the College of Liberal Arts in 1963 and the Graduate School of Public Administration in 1965. He was the President of the ICU Alumni Association of the Americas in the early 2000s and currently resides in Connecticut. We are excited to share his story.
Dr. Hisato Yamaguchi majored in physics at ICU and graduated in 2001. He currently resides in New Mexico and works as a researcher at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Please enjoy his alumni story.
Ms. Noriko Iwase, who graduated from ICU in 1974, currently lives in Washington, D.C. After a long career at the United Nations and World Bank, she decided to pursue a different path. A generous supporter of JICUF and ICU, she shared her ICU story with us.
Ms. Tomoko Ishibashi graduated from ICU in June 1991. She currently lives in Toronto, Canada, and joined the second ICU reunion in Toronto in November. She shared her “ICU story” with us.
