GSC selected as host for ‘Japan Outreach Initiative’


Glenville State College has been selected as a host site for the ‘Japan Outreach Initiative’.

Outreach Coordinator Masahiro Yamaguchi will work with GSC over the next two years to provide programs on Japanese culture for both the campus and local schools.

Yamaguchi hopes to teach more people in the state about Japanese culture through simple, fun methods.

“Basically I will visit a lot of middle schools, public schools, and also I will have activities here such as very simple basic things like chopsticks challenge, origami, kirie,” said Yamaguchi.

Yamaguchi said the program is flexible enough to also allow discussion of study abroad experiences or international business, as well.
