Osaka University Alumni Get-Together in Tokyo

2010-12-17 (Fri) 6:00 p.m. -

An Osaka University Alumni Get-Together in Tokyo will be held as outlined below. Alumni, please bring your friends and family to this get-together!

Osaka University has held Homecoming Day on Toyonaka Campus since 2006 in order that alumni, their families, and former faculty and staff members can expand and build upon the relationships and current situation of the university.

However, the fact of the matter is that a lot of Osaka University alumni live in the Kanto area, particularly in Tokyo, and they look forward an annual reunion being held closer to where they now live in the Kanto. Thus, since 2009, an "Osaka University Alumni Get-Together in Tokyo" has been held at Gakushi Kaikan in Tokyo.

This year again, an "Osaka University Alumni Get-Together" will be held in Tokyo in order to inform alumni and persons living in the Kanto area about the current situation at the university which is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2011.
