International Dormitory Resident Assistants Voice

#国際寮 #InternationalDormitories #ResidentAssistant

We guarantee dormitories where both Japanese and international students reside - fostering an international community both on and off-campus. At NUCB Undergraduate School, we consider living together with students from other cultural backgrounds to be a critical part of the international experience - students with diverse social, linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking live in the dormitories.

Capable of speaking both Japanese and English, the RA's will provide support for the international students in the dormitories, holding networking and cultural activities and events, involving the students in the NUCB Community. This will provide the international students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of Japanese language and culture while fostering deeper and broader connections with their peers.

A bridge between international students and Japanese students

Takimoto, 2nd year student, Faculty of International Studies

I wanted to become a Resident Assistant (RA) to spend more time with English speakers to supplement my academic studies.

To overcome my weakness in speaking, I would like to acquire practical English skills through active involvement with international students. I am convinced that supporting international students as a RA will be beneficial for studying overseas and finding outside Japan.

The RA's would like to create a place where international and Japanese students can casually interact and share valuable experiences.

Enjoy a good life in Japan

Hattori, 2nd year student, Faculty of International Studies

One of the activities of RA's is to support international students when they move into the international dormitories.

Some international students been to Japan before, while others are coming to Japan for the first time. Since only a few international students speak Japanese, we introduce things such as how to use the appliances in English.

We also explain how to dispose of garbage and use the laundry facilities, and we also go with the students to a nearby supermarket and support them in purchasing items they will need for their daily lives. We hope that by helping each other, we will be able to enjoy a good life in Japan.
