Around Satake Memorial Hall
The campus was filled with many old and new faces.
November 3rd saw the 12th Hiroshima University Homecoming Day. On the sunny day of autumn, many alumni visited Higashi Hiroshima campus and talked one another about their university memories from the opening to the social party.
The event started off with a performance of wind orchestra, followed by an address from President Ochi, a chorus of the University Song, music performances of songs associate with soccer. Following the opening ceremony, Mr. Takeshi Okada, a former National Football Team coach, delivered a lecture entitled “Team Management - A Challenge from Imabari.” He told the audience, “It’s important to have courage to step forward to your goals and dreams.”
Around the main area there were food and product fairs by partner cities and towns. Queues were forming here and there.
Along with the Homecoming Day events, Time Capsule Ceremony was held at the campus. A time capsule containing peace letters and drawings prepared by the victims of the atomic bomb and the home/international students at Hiroshima University was buried on the campus. There was also an event inviting the guardians and families of first- and second-year students in which the university’s overview, its activities, and its support for students were introduced. All attendees of about 110 were engrossed with the talks given during the event. They also had an opportunity to mingle with HU faculty, administrative staff, alumni, and current students.
Thank you all for joining the Homecoming Day event!
