2010 TUJ Alumni Reunion a Success!

2010 TUJ Alumni Reunion kicked off at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo with an overwhelming response of attendance from our alumni. With an attendance of over 120, it was great to have old friends along with the faculty and TUJ Board mingle ending the evening with a lively raffle with plenty of prizes. We raised significant funds from the raffle which will be allocated to the Dean’s Fund to further the students' education.

Starting January 2011, we will have our monthly gathering for TUJ Alumni. January 20th, 2011 TUJ will gather with other Alumni for drinks at ONCE in Nakameguro. Details will be sent later.
