How it works?
- Buddies are students at Keio University who volunteer to introduce you to the Japanese way of life. As a participant in the Keio Tomodachi Program, you will be part of a buddy group that consists of approximately 2-3 buddies and 3-4 international students.
- You will have a kick-off meeting at the beginning of the semester (September 14 for 2017 Fall Semester). After the meeting, you and the other students decide what you would like to do within the framework of the Keio Tomodachi Program. It is everyone’s responsibility to make it a success!
- The weekly gathering will be held at the Global Lounge, Mita Campus. Participants are highly recommended to come to the Lounge once a week to meet your group members or members of other groups.
