Japanese Club Opens the Door to Japanese Culture and History

Posted by iusbvision on April 18, 2006

Nihongo no kurabu…this is Japanese Club in Japanese, and we’re always ready to learn or teach something new about Japan and/or the Japanese culture. We are a club that discusses and enjoys events that cover a wide range of the aspects of Japan, from culture, to history, to current events.

The Japanese Club has been on campus and active since 2002, and continues this year with President Joe Spencer, Vice President Adam Rummage, Secretary Kristen Pritchett, and Treasurer Kathryn Fountain.  Professor Yoshiko Green is the Japanese Club’s advisor and our resident sensei *teacher* for Japanese.

You can find any one of our members in the Club Room in the Student Activities Center, and most of the time at least one officer is there, so if you’re interested in joining, just come on up; we’ll be happy to get you signed up.

We have meetings every Thursday in the Club Room, at 6:30 pm.  We look forward to this year’s annual trip to Anime Central, a Japanese culture and animation convention held in Chicago, as well as a presentation that the Japanese Club is doing on the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with English translated memoirs received from the Hiroshima National Peace Project.

For more information on this or other Japanese Club events, students can always contact the president or secretary via email:
