The 2022 TISA Welcome Party was hosted by the Tokyo Institute of Technology and was managed by TISA. The event is organized by a collaboration between TISA, SAGE, ACTION, and is supported by Tokyo Tech Alumni Association (Kuramae) and Student supporting division.

A welcome party is held each semester to integrate all her international students within the Tokyo tech community. We aim to give initial hospitality that reaches out and positively pulls all international students to the comfort of a welcoming environment.

The welcome party was held after an interval of two years due to the pandamic. As the pandamic heading to end and lots of international students managed to come to Japan, we decided to hold the party. Although there are still a lot of restrictiions concerning the pandamic, the party was held in a safe and a balanced way for people to enjoy.

The 2022 Welcome Party was attended by over 100 new students, current students, staff, graduates, and friends. It included many fun games, interactive activities with complimetary snacks and amazing prizes. The university president Masu and Tokyo Tech Alumni Association (Kuramae) representative Ido gave a welcome message. Participants enjoyed gaming, dancing, snacks and Tapioka drinks.

Nice events such interesting dancing, presents,too many good friends were too satisfied to enjoy! I really hope more people will come to join TISA events and get to know each other during research period in Tokyotech. I am already looking forward another fascinating event in future! Let’s hang out together!^_^"
"This time I participated in TISA's welcome party. I was a little uncomfortable at first with other international students whom I had never met before, but we naturally became friends while playing various games prepared by TISA. I also enjoyed talking with other TISA friends, and I hope to participate in future events."
"I attended this reception party because I wanted to get involved with international students. I also felt that I could expand my human network by talking to other people out of my group. At the party, we were divided into several groups, where we had conversations and played mini-games to deepen our interactions. Everyone was easy to talk to and friendly. Even though my English was not good enough, I enjoyed conversations very much. I will continue to take advantage of opportunities like this in the future."

Comments from TISA Welcome Party chief executives Jiatong YU and Jiayi YU (School of Materials and Chemical Technology, Master first year):
This was the first TISA in-person event in two years. It was not easy to hold such an event during the pandemic. We are glad that the participants seemed to have enjoyed it. I hope that the participants can make new friends and will make use of the opportunity of this welcome party for their future networking.
TISA received generous support from the Tokyo Tech Alumni Association (Kuramae) Association and the student support division. I would also like to thank all the TISA members and friends who volunteered their time to help out. We will do our best to make it a better event that more people can enjoy next time.
As for our academic studies, both of us are studying mainly polymer science. We aim to create high-functional and high-performance polymer materials.
