Campus Life

International Friendship House NADESHIKO

Experience everyday life in a global circumstance

Students live together with people from all over the world (as a rule, all the first year students must reside in the dormitory, and overseas students are expected to stay here during their enrollment.)

     All the first year students are, with the assistance of “Floor leaders” or “Nadeshiko mates”, to reside in the International Friendship House NADESHIKO. Through this boarding school system that they live together with their peers and overseas students, they learn how to build good relationships, intercultural understanding and foreign language communication skills. They are also immersed in diverse perspectives and ways of thinking, and can spend an exciting day-to-day life. By providing the students with a variety of experiences and exchanges, FWU continues to foster highly motivated and skilled women.

※“Floor leaders”: first-year students who are in charge of helping to sort out dorm issues, do event-planning as well as liaise and coordinate.
※“Nadeshiko mates”: second-year or senior students who support the dorm residents, including international students, in their general everyday life as a kind of staff.
