Events for International Students

Chuo offers various events and programs promoting international and intercultural exchanges.

Welcome parties for new students

In April, Chuo University holds a welcome party at which new exchange students, senior exchange students, and Japanese students can gather and meet new friends. In the autumn, another welcome party is held for international students starting in September.

Sports Events

Every year, the Chuo University International Students Association promotes intercultural exchange through sports competitions among international and Japanese students. In the past, we have enjoyed basketball, dodge ball, five-legged races, tug-of-war, and other sports games.

Hakumon festival

Exchange students serve their delicious home recipes at food stalls during the annual festival.

Peace Seminar Camp

Chuo University holds an annual Peace Seminar camp during summer or spring break, providing an excellent opportunity for international and Japanese students to study about issues focusing on peace and to interact with the local community. Nearly 30 students participate in the seminar each year, and to date, the seminars have been held in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Okinawa, Hokkaido, and South Korea (Seoul). 

Parent-teacher group meeting

In the past, parent-teacher group meetings were held in Shanghai (China) and Taipei (Taiwan). Parents of exchange students at Chuo received the latest updates on the university.
