TUJ Alumni Reunite in Tokyo

Alumni enjoyed food, reminiscing and some casual networking.

Waiting in line at the Philly cheese steak wagon.

Approximately 150 TUJ alumni, faculty and guests gathered on October 26 for TUJ's 25th Anniversary Special Alumni Reunion at the Sheraton Miyako Hotel in Shirogane. The night featured plenty of friendly mixing, raffle prizes, and even a "taste of TUJ home" as two chefs served up fresh Philly cheese steaks. One notable aspect of the evening was the Alumni Association's first-ever election. Alumni attending cast their ballots for six Executive Committee positions in 2008: president, vice-president, treasurer, and three executive member slots. We hope to announce the results in the next issue of TUJ Times Online.
