Students from both Departments have been meeting with me on a one-on-one basis every Thursday. I have started with the 1st and 4th-year students this semester, but I am planning to meet 2nd and 3rd-year students in the fall as well. My goal is to meet all the 800+ students from all over Japan and the world in within this academic year. It is wonderful to have this opportunity to listen to them and exchange ideas. I wish I could do that every day!
