The Society of International Students would like to welcome all new and returning students. This semester we started off our first Cultural hour featuring Japan. We were very pleased with the attendance and participation of the students. The Cultural hour started with a quiz based on Japan, followed by making your own Mochi. Mochi is a Japanese rice cake, then students enjoyed playing a card game called Karuta.After all the fun games, students got a taste of delicious Japanese food. Students were then offered the chance to wear Japanese Kimonos. We would like to thank Ms. Ai Kataoka for planning the event and joining with the SIS to make this event such a success. We look forward to keep sharing culture here at VSU.
