Our Core Activites

Weekly TITech Student Forum

This is a unique opportunity for students and staff to communicate openly on issues in the University. Students can propose topics to be discussed during each Forum session, and representatives from Tokyo Tech's administration are invited to have dialog with the students and address the questions.

Orientation and Welcome Party

It is important to connect with new students and give them a warm welcome to the Tokyo Tech/TISA community. TISA members participate in the orientation of new international students every year and help to organise the International Welcome Parties in Spring and Fall.

Let's Go Global (LGG): Natives

This gives international students a way to re-connect with their own cultures and showcase cultures from across the world. LGG is a weekly event where students share their cultures and customs with other students, staff, and visitors. Presentations focus on life experiences of natives from the different countries/cultures.

Japanese Exchange (JEx) Club Connections

TISA collaborates with other clubs/circles to encourage positive integration between international and Japanese students. These joint activities allow International students to experience other student activities on campus, and these activities allow Japanese students to interact with foreign students in English.
