International conference of students for seeking the paths as cosmopolitans

"The 1st Conference for University Students of Waseda University" held at Waseda University.

At the 125th anniversary of inauguration last year, the international conference of university presidents was held. At this conference, mainly the overseas-study advisors of Center for International Education, Waseda University, took the central roles as the student ambassadors for escorting university presidents from around the world. Then, it was considered that there had been few opportunities for students to discuss their ideas regarding international exchanges among students. Consequently, "the First Conference for University Students of Waseda University" was hosted by students, in order to provide students with the opportunity to debate and seek the path as cosmopolitans considering the future outlook. At the first conference, under the themes of overseas study and career, students made enthusiastic discussions on how to utilize the experience and knowledge accumulated during overseas study for future career.

The Waseda alumni who experienced overseas study, Mr. Chutatsu Aono, representative director/president of GABA Corporation, and Mr. Hiroyuki Morita, freelance journalist, gave lectures; individual booths were set; the "overseas study exhibition" was held for enabling visitors to communicate with those who experienced overseas study in each country and listen to their presentations; and group discussions were made.
