We had the Entrance Ceremony on 12 September, 2016. This year we were pleased to welcome eight new students into the SCOPE program. The Entrance Ceremony started with a warm and encouraging greeting by President of Hosei University, Yuko Tanaka. Following the ceremony, the new students were given a faculty orientation led by the chief of the program, Professor Morio Kuninori. After the busy morning, the new students were invited to a lunch session where they had the chance to talk casually with the faculty members, and to mix with the intake from other English programs at Hosei University. Finally, the students were invited to a welcome session organized by the department, at which they had ice-breaking game and interacted with about 40 Japanese students.
