Last December, JICUF Student Activity Fund recipient and ICU student Akiyo Sasaki and co-organizers Machi Niiya, Ayumi Murase, Rio Kokuta, and Shimon Hibi began the “Nihongo de Itadakimasu: Cultural Exchange through Japanese Language and Food” project. The aim of the project was to promote intercultural communication by inviting ICU students of all Japanese levels to mingle with each other and learn about Japanese culture.
ICU doctoral student Jenni Fajardo received a JICUF grant of ¥140,000 in winter term 2016 to organize a series of workshops to help ICU students improve their presentation and business communication skills. Five workshops took place from May 19th to June 16th, with a different speaker and topic in each session. We asked participants to share their experiences.
ICU graduate student Eleazar Puguon was awarded a JICUF student grant of ¥75,000 for his project, “Fiestas sa Pinas.” Together with fellow graduate student Jenni Fajardo, he planned a Filipino Night on May 16th, an event to introduce Filipino culture, history and society to the ICU community.
