On October 1st, Hiroshima University held the 2018 Autumn Term Entrance Ceremony at Satake Memorial Hall, and welcomed 305 new students.
In his speech, President Ochi said, “I would like to encourage those starting out at Hiroshima University today, to acquire not only specialized knowledge, but also a broad education in many subjects, and most definitely, one of the guiding principles of HU: “the pursuit of peace.” He also encouraged the new students by saying, “I would like you to acquire a strong will and passion, which will enable you to make advancements on the frontline of research and practice. Indeed, this in turn will make the world a better place, even if just step by step.”
As usual, most of the new students in the Autumn Term are international students so the ceremony speech was given both in English and Japanese.
